The White Sox resume interleague play in St. Louis.

The Chicago White Sox have cooled a bit since streaking their way into first place in the AL Central, but as they head to St. Louis for a three-game series, they still find themselves atop the division.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, are a couple of games out of first in the NL Central after a strong start to the season; injuries have been a big reason why they've struggled over the last few weeks. But despite a modest 31-30 record, St. Louis still has the best run differential (+55) in the National League, which bodes well for when they're finally able to get healthy.

Adam Wainwright (5-6, 4.97 ERA) is scheduled to start Tuesday's game for St. Louis, while Jose Quintana (1-1, 2.05) will get the ball for the White Sox.

Game Date & Time: Tuesday, June 12, 7:15 p.m. CT

TV: WCIU
