The Cardinals travel to Philadelphia for a night game with Mike Leake on the mound facing Jeremy Hellickson. The last time these two teams met the Cardinals swept them in St. Louis. Now with this on the road, and the Cardinals needing every win they can, it will be much harder to win. The Cardinals have been bad recently and the starting pitching staff has been atrocious.
