Let's just get this over with so the Phillies can get out of this horrid state.

SERIES PREVIEW

Busch Stadium

1:45PM EDT on CSN and MLB Network (out of market only because MLB are fuck boys)

Jerad Eickhoff (1-3) 4.15 ERA (2.84 FIP)

PHILLIES: Eickhoff is hoping to be a little sharper against the Cardinals. After allowing a career-high seven runs April 24 in Milwaukee, he grinded through six innings Saturday against the Indians, allowing three runs. The Cardinals have a better shot at more bullshit squirrel magic than hitting Eickhoff's curve today. 7 IP, 10 K's incoming.

Jaime Garcia (1-2) 3.73 ERA

CARDINALS: I don't have the strength to even write something mean right now. Other than fuck the Cardinals, of course.
