KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
CHICAGO CUBS: 017 92-70, first place, lost to Dodgers in NLCS
MANAGER Joe Maddon (fourth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Yu Darvish, RHP Brandon Morrow, RHP Tyler Chatwood, RHP Steve Cishek, LHP Drew Smyly, C Chris Gimenez
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Wade Davis, C Alex Avila, C Rene Rivera, RHP Jake Arrieta, RHP John Lackey
OUTLOOK: World Series or bust. The acquisition of Darvish, who finalized a $126 million, six-year contract in February, gives Chicago a strong rotation, and the lineup is young, deep and dangerous. A franchise-record six players (Rizzo, Schwarber, Bryant, Happ, Baez and Contreras) belted at least 20 home runs last year, including a major league-record five in an age 25 or younger season. Chicago also scored more than 800 runs in consecutive seasons for the first time since the team surpassed that mark for three consecutive years from 1929-1931. The Cubs have made it to the NL Championship Series for three consecutive seasons, winning it all in 2016 to end a 108-year drought, and there's no reason to think they won't be in the mix for another title this year.
PREVIEW
Cubs look to stay hot against fading Cardinals
 

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs used a strong push to enter the All-Star break leading the National League Central Division. The St. Louis Cardinals, meanwhile, finished the first half on a skid that cost manager Mike Matheny his job.

So as the longtime rivals open a five-game series on Thursday at Wrigley Field, the Cubs -- who have won six of their last eight games -- hope to create some distance between themselves and the rest of the division while the Cardinals look to improve on what has been a disappointing season thus far.

The Cubs entered the break by sweeping the San Diego Padres and by scoring 18 runs in their final two victories of the series. While the offense has more than produced, the Cubs will need more consistency from their starting rotation, including Thursday's starter Kyle Hendricks.

The Cubs could look to add another starter before the trade deadline but need Hendricks to play the pivotal role he has in the past.

Hendricks (6-8, 3.92 ERA) has struggled throughout the season to find the edge that made him one of the National League's top pitchers over the past couple of seasons. Hendricks has been better of late and has started to find a groove in July, including in his last outing when he allowed a pair of runs and five hits in five innings in an 11-6 victory over the San Diego Padres.

He hopes Thursday's start is another step in the right direction against the Cardinals, again whom Hendricks is 3-2 with a 3.43 ERA in 11 career starts. In his one start against St. Louis this season, Hendricks gave up three runs on seven hits and four walks over six innings, and he got the win in that 6-3 victory on June 16.

"Something just clicked and I was able to repeat one (delivery) after another so that was a really good feeling,'' Hendricks told reporters after a July 9 start against the San Francisco Giants when he allowed just one run and five hits over 8 1/3 innings in his best start of the season. "(Catcher Willson Contreras) and I were just really on the same page, mixing pitches, keeping them off-balance, and that's the game I have to play."

It's the kind of game the Cubs need Hendricks to play as they push toward another postseason run.

"That's the Kyle we know and love," Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters after Hendricks' gem in San Francisco.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, will attempt to rebound after firing Matheny just before the break in the midst of a stretch in which they dropped four of their last six games.

St. Louis is currently just two games over. 500 and will see the Cubs a good deal over the next 10 days as interim manager Mike Shildt takes over for Matheny. After this five-game series, the Cardinals host the Cubs for three games July 27-29. What role the Cardinals will play as the trade deadline approaches has yet to be determined, which makes the upcoming stretch even more uncertain.

Still, the Cardinals remain optimistic.

"This team's going to bring good things to the table," pitcher Jordan Hicks said after his last outing.

On Wednesday, the Cardinals placed All-Star pitcher Miles Mikolas on paternity leave and recalled reliever Matt Bowman from Triple-A Memphis. Mikolas could return later in this weekend's series.

Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez (6-5, 3.08) will take the mound for Thursday's series opener. Martinez has won three of his last four starts but allowed three runs over six innings in a 9-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Friday.

Martinez is 4-4 in 25 career appearances (15 starts) against the Cubs.

He was the Cardinals' starting pitcher in the June 16 game against the Cubs when Hendricks got the win. Martinez allowed three runs on seven hits and six walks over five innings in that game and did not get a decision.
