The St. Louis Cardinals and their first two opponents–the Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates have set their pitching rotation for the beginning of the season.
Adam Wainwright will start for the Cardinals, Johnny Cueto for the Reds, and Francisco Liriano for the Pirates which sets up the following match-ups for the first St. Louis road trip of 2014:
March 31st…Wainwright vs. Cueto
April 2nd…Michael Wacha vs. Tony Cingrani
April 3rd…Lance Lynn vs. Homer Bailey
April 4th…Shelby Miller vs. Garret Cole
April 5th…Joe Kelly vs. Francisco Liriano
April 6th…Adam Wainwright vs. Edison Volquez
Liriano is a bit of a wildcard as he has dealt with some groin issues during Spring Training, but has indicated he should be fine for Opening Day.
