Cardinals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals finally broke out of an offensive slump in the opener of their series against the Chicago Cubs, but it wasn't enough to prevent them from losing a season-high fourth straight.

They haven't scored many runs over the last month for Shelby Miller, but he hasn't exactly done his part on the mound.

Miller returns to the rotation after a quick trip to the bullpen to get some extra rest, and he'll look to end a poor stretch of starts Saturday in the second of three games between these NL Central rivals at Wrigley Field.
