The Cardinals close out their six-game, seven-day road swing with an afternoon game at Wrigley Field today. Manager Mike Matheny is sticking with the same eight position players he used on Tuesday, though Jon Jay and David Freese swap places in the batting order. Today’s game marks the end of a 12-game stretch against NL Central opponents, as well. The Cardinals have won seven of the first 11 games during the string of division games.
