The Cardinals and Cubs are meeting for the first of 19 games between the two clubs this season. St. Louis arrives at Wrigley Field riding a six-game winning streak — their longest winning streak since taking eight straight from July 10-21, 2010. The club has won seven in a row on the road, too, which has propelled the Cards to the National League’s best record (20-11).
