Cardinals/Phillies Tonight at Busch

The Philadelphia Phillies will try to extend their longest winning streak of the season on Friday evening when they resume a four-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals. Cardinals left-hander Jamie Garcia has felt good as of late and he goes for a third straight winning start this evening. Garcia has given up just one run, eight hits and walked five over 14 innings of his two-game win streak, improving to 3-0 with a 3.72 earned run average in six starts on the year. Garcia is 2-3 with a 2.77 ERA in eight meetings (6 starts) with the Phillies, who counter with veteran A.J. Burnett. Burnett has lost three of his past four decisions, but was able to give Philadelphia eight innings of work against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. However, he got no run support in a 3-0 setback, giving up all three runs and falling to 4-6 on the year with a 4.17 ERA. The Phillies were swept in three games last season in their lone trip to St. Louis, outscored 18-5.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
