Okay here's my preview of today's game 1. Pitching matchup STL: RHP Jeff Weaver (4-11, 6.32 ERA) Weaver said after his victory over the Dodgers on Sunday that he'd like to "get into the eighth inning." He'll be coming off his first win as a Cardinal, in which he nearly got out of the sixth, settling into a ground-ball-inducing rhythm against a Los Angeles lineup laced with left-handed hitters. CHC: LHP Rich Hill (0-4, 9.31 ERA) This should be Sean Marshall's turn, but the rookie left-hander was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a strained left oblique. Hill started for Triple-A Iowa on the same day as Marshall and struck out 14 for the second time in as many starts. He's expected to be called up to face the Cardinals. Hill leads the Pacific Coast League with 135 strikeouts in 100 innings. He struggled in his first callup to the big leagues in May. Player to watch Todd Walker has worn Weaver out over the years. Walker is 7-for-18 (.389) with three doubles against the right-hander.
