|Cardinals Look to Rebound Against the Nats in DC
|WASHINGTON (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals try to rebound from their tough weekend in Milwaukee as they finish out a road trip against the Washington Nationals.
The Cards will send six-game winner Jaime Garcia to the mound against Yunesky Maya in the opener of a three-game series Tuesday night.
Milwaukee's weekend sweep dropped the Cardinals into second-place in the National Central by a half-game. The Nats are in last place in NL East.
There's some good news on the injury front for the Cardinals. They expect pitcher Kyle McClellan and outfielder Matt Holliday to come off the disabled list this week. McClellan is scheduled to start on tomorrow against Washington. Holliday could be activated on Thursday.
