Cardinals-Phillies Preview

(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals have an opportunity to match their longest winning streak of the season, and they've planned accordingly by moving their ace up a day in the rotation.

Adam Wainwright will try for a major league-best 16th win Friday night as the Cardinals open a three-game road series with the Philadelphia Phillies.

St. Louis (69-57), winner of four straight, used Thursday's off day to bump Wainwright (15-7, 2.40 ERA) ahead of Shelby Miller and better align its top starter with future NL Central matchups.
