Cardinals Vs. Cubs Lineups For Saturday At Wrigley Field

The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals meet up again for game two of their three-game set at Wrigley Field on Saturday afternoon, and Jeff Samardzija takes the mound opposite Joe Kelly. The Cubs have not faced Kelly in 2012, but the young St. Louis starter has been very solid during the month of July.

Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see how Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija does against a lineup loaded with lefties. He has held right-handed hitters to a .244/.296/.325 line for the 2012 season, but lefties produced a .256/.333/.489 line and the Cardinals have structured a lineup to take advantage of that trend.
