KEY GAME INFORMATION
ARIZONA: 2017 93-69, second place, wild card, lost to Dodgers in NLDS
MANAGER Torey Lovullo (second season)
ADDITIONS: OF Steven Souza Jr., OF Jarrod Dyson, C Alex Avila, RHP Yoshihisa Hirano, RHP Brad Boxberger
SUBTRACTIONS: OF J.D. Martinez, 2B Brandon Drury, C Chris Iannetta, RHP Fernando Rodney
OUTLOOK: With all five starters back and nearly every position player returning, the Diamondbacks expect to be in the thick of things in the NL West after their big turnaround season under Lovullo, the NL MANAGER of the Year. The loss of Martinez hurts the offense but the acquisition of Souza -- who will begin the season on the disabled list -- and signing of Dyson should help. In addition, several players who missed much or most of last season with injuries are back, including Ahmed and utilityman Chris Owings. Greinke's initial start was pushed back a few days after he experienced tightness in his groin during a spring training outing, but it's not expected to be serious. Ray hopes to improve on his breakout season, giving the team a solid 1-2 pitching punch. The lineup could use a return to form at the plate for Pollock, who struggled a bit after missing nearly all of 2016 due to injury. Marte figures to get plenty of time at second base and some at shortstop. Owings and Daniel Descalso can play pretty much every infield spot as well as the outfield.
ST LOUIS: 2017 83-79, third place
MANAGER Mike Matheny (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: LF Marcell Ozuna, RHP Miles Mikolas, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Bud Norris, INF-OF Yairo Munoz
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Lance Lynn, OF Stephen Piscotty, OF Randal Grichuk, RHP Seung-hwan Oh, RHP Juan Nicasio, SS Aledmys Diaz, RHP Trevor Rosenthal
OUTLOOK: The Cardinals have had one losing season since the start of the century, but they are facing immense pressure from fans after finishing behind the Cubs and Brewers in 2017. St. Louis missed the playoffs for a second consecutive year, the first time that's happened since 2007-2008. For the Cardinals to snap that postseason "drought," they'll need bounce-back seasons from several players -- including a healthy Wainwright on the mound and Carpenter at the plate. Few expect the Cardinals to cede the NL Central title to Chicago for a third consecutive year without putting up a fight, but St. Louis will need Ozuna and Pham to produce as expected. If they do, and the Cardinals can bring along their reworked pitching staff, the potential for a return to the playoffs is there.
PREVIEW
Cardinals feel need to get bats in gear vs. Diamondbacks
 

After setting the table for a fourth-inning feast Thursday night, the St. Louis Cardinals never made it past the appetizer.

Yadier Molina's RBI double put men at second and third with one out and one run in. Paul DeJong and Yairo Munoz walked to the plate, ready to dig in. Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray sent them back to their room without dinner or dessert, fanning both to end the inning.

That left St. Louis trailing 3-1, and the Cardinals couldn't get anything going against Ray and the bullpen in the final five innings as they lost their home opener.

"We've got to make something happen there," St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said, "but it's easier said than done."

That can easily be said about facing Zack Greinke, which the Cardinals must do Saturday when the series resumes in Busch Stadium.

The ace of the Arizona staff has traditionally been tough on St. Louis, going 12-4 with a 3.17 ERA in 18 career starts. That includes a 7-1 decision last July under the Gateway Arch, which saw Greinke allow three straight hits and a run to the first three batters and then go into shutdown mode.

In Greinke's first start of 2018 on March 31, he fanned nine in 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against Colorado, allowing five hits and a walk to go along with a run. The Diamondbacks lost that game but no others in a 6-1 start.

Ray and four relievers limited the Cardinals to two hits while producing 13 strikeouts. St. Louis managed just one baserunner in the last three innings, and that was only because first baseman Paul Goldschmidt booted a Tommy Pham grounder.

"It's one of the key factors to our success so far this season," Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told mlb.com about the bullpen. "They know their roles. They come in and execute very, very well.

"When you're in a 3-1 game against a team like this in a visiting ballpark, you really try to stop that momentum. Our pitchers did a great job of standing on their stuff and getting outs."

Dating to a four-game series last July, Diamondbacks pitching has yielded just six runs in their last five games against St. Louis. The Cardinals have managed to eke out two wins in that stretch, including a 1-0 triumph that Michael Wacha fronted with six shutout innings.

Wacha will try to make amends for a rough first start March 31 at the New York Mets. He failed to make it out of the fifth inning, yielding five hits and four runs in 4 2/3 innings with two walks and two strikeouts in a 6-2 defeat.

In five career starts against Arizona, Wacha is 1-1 with a 3.45 ERA, allowing the Diamondbacks to bat just .236. Aside from his second career start, which saw the Diamondbacks rough him up in June 2013, Wacha has pitched well against them.

Sunday's series finale pits Arizona's Taijuan Walker (0-0, 5.40) against Luke Weaver (1-0, 1.80) in a matchup of young, hard-throwing right-handers.
