KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHILADELPHIA: 2017 66-96, fifth place
MANAGER Gabe Kapler (first season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Jake Arrieta, 1B Carlos Santana, RHP Pat Neshek, RHP Tommy Hunter
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Pete Mackanin, SS Freddy Galvis, INF Andres Blanco, OF Daniel Nava, OF Hyun Soo Kim, RHP Clay Buchholz, 1B Tommy Joseph
OUTLOOK: The decision to sign Arrieta signals the rebuild is over. The Phillies added Santana, Neshek and Hunter to a talented young roster in hopes of being competitive. A month into spring training, they added Arrieta because management thinks it's time to contend. The lineup has the potential to be dynamic if the young hitters continue to emerge and Santana does what he did in Cleveland. The bullpen should be formidable with Hunter-Neshek-Neris at the back end. If Arrieta regains his old form, Nola lives up to his promise and a couple of other starters take steps forward, the Phillies cannot only end their five-year run of losing seasons but maybe even make a surprise push for a postseason berth.
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
Phillies aim to keep making progress vs. Cards
 

Wednesday's 4-1 win in Baltimore pushed the Philadelphia Phillies to a place they haven't been since the end of the 2011 season - eight games over .500.

Philadelphia tries to push its 24-16 record up another notch Thursday night when it starts a four-game series at the St. Louis Cardinals.

"We're all really positive in here right now," said Phillies pitcher Nick Pivetta, who fanned 11 in seven innings to earn the win over the Orioles. "Everybody is jelling together. You guys can see it. It's really, really fun in here right now."

Fun is something Philadelphia hasn't experienced much of the last five years in Busch Stadium. The Phillies are just 5-13 under the Gateway Arch, dating to 2013, including a three-game sweep last June in which they were outscored 16-7.

But this Philadelphia team is far better than those teams that mostly flailed to no avail in St. Louis. The Phillies have a better lineup, led by Odubel Herrera, who has reached base in 42 straight games dating to the end of 2017, and have upgraded their pitching with the late addition of Jake Arrieta during spring training.

Arrieta has stabilized a promising young rotation that includes power right-hander Vince Velasquez (3-4, 5.05 ERA), who makes the start on Thursday night. Velasquez is coming off a 6-3 win on May 10 against San Francisco in which he fanned 12 over six innings, allowing five hits and three runs in the process.

This will be Velasquez's second career start against the Cardinals. He lost his first outing in August 2016, ceding five runs on seven hits in six innings during a 9-0 defeat. Velasquez allowed two homers, walked two and whiffed seven.

Another young righty, Luke Weaver (3-2, 4.91), gets the call for St. Louis (23-17) as it opens a seven-game homestand. Weaver snapped a three-game losing streak on Friday night in San Diego, making it through five scoreless innings in a 9-5 laugher over the Padres.

Weaver will face Philadelphia for the second time in his career. In a 2016 defeat to the Phillies, Weaver permitted three runs and nine hits in five innings, recording six strikeouts and walking one.

The Cardinals arrive back in town after splitting a six-game road trip against San Diego and Minnesota. They broke out offensively Wednesday in a 7-5 decision over the Twins as struggling Matt Carpenter and Dexter Fowler combined for five hits.

Carpenter and Fowler entered the day with the lowest averages among qualified hitters in the National League at .140 and .146, respectively. But Carpenter had three hits, including a pair of doubles, and Fowler stroked two hits, including a two-run single in the first off former teammate Lance Lynn.

"It was nice to see the offense get into rhythm today. Hopefully, this is a little foreshadowing for what is to come. Hopefully, we'll get this going on the next homestand every day," Carpenter said.

Carpenter batted seventh Wednesday, the lowest he's hit in the order since July 22, 2015.

"He's real close to getting right," St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. "His swings looked very good. We know the type of hitter he can be."
