Tuesday, September 11 PNC Park | 6:05 PM CT

Yovani Gallardo, RHP (7-4, 4.27)

Brewers (73-70) @ Bryan Bullington, RHP (0-1, 15.00)

Pirates (64-80)

Scouting Report:

Brewers: Gallardo worked seven shutout innings to beat the Astros on Wednesday for his third win in four starts, holding Houston to six hits and never allowing a runner past second base. He also went 1-for-3 at the plate and scored a run, boosting his batting average to .281 (9-for-32). He is nearing the point where Brewers officials are concerned about his innings pitched.

Pirates: With Paul Maholm still sidelined with tightness in his lower back, Bullington will get a second start since being called up. The former No. 1 Draft pick made his first Major League start last Thursday and lasted just three innings while allowing five runs. The Pirates are going to remain very cautious on how many pitches Bullington throws, since it is still his first season off shoulder surgery. Before joining the Pirates, Bullington pitched 150 innings down at Triple-A.

Wednesday, September 12 PNC Park | 11:35 AM CT

Dave Bush, RHP (11-10, 5.25)

Brewers (73-70) @ Tom Gorzelanny, LHP (14-7, 3.48)

Pirates (64-80)

Scouting Report:

Brewers: Blink and you might have missed Bush?s last start. He pitched an inning-plus in the shortest outing of his career, and was tagged with eight earned runs on nine hits without walking a batter. Bush surrendered six runs while facing 10 batters in the first inning, then served up Ken Griffey?s 30th home run of the season in the second, a two-run shot that knocked Bush out of the game. It was a rare poor outing for the right-hander, who was 8-3 with a 4.01 ERA over his previous 15 appearances, and had pitched into the fifth inning in all of his 26 starts this season. He beat the Pirates on Sept. 1 at Miller Park, allowing a run on four hits in six innings.

Pirates: Gorzelanny is one win away from becoming the first Pirates pitcher since 1999 to record 15 wins in a season. He picked up win No. 14 by allowing one run on six hits in seven innings of work against the Cubs. The win was refreshing for Gorzelanny, whose previous start lasted just four innings due to a very high pitch count early. That four-inning outing came against Milwaukee, against whom Gorzelanny has already faced three times this season.

Friday, September 14 Miller Park | 7:05 PM CT

Phil Dumatrait, LHP (0-4, 15.00)

Reds (64-79) @ Jeff Suppan, RHP (9-11, 4.74)

Brewers (73-70)

Scouting Report:

Reds: Dumatrait had a historically bad outing Sunday, allowing consecutive home runs by Rickie Weeks, J.J. Hardy and Ryan Braun to begin the game. Dumatrait faced just five batters, yielding five hits and four earned runs on just 12 pitches. Dumatrait, 26, rejoined the Reds on Sept. 1, when rosters expanded.

Brewers: Suppan surrendered only three hits and one walk in six innings against the Reds last week, but the Reds made the most of their baserunners. Suppan issued a walk and a single in the second inning before rookie first baseman Joey Votto hit a low-and-inside pitch the opposite way for a three-run homer, sending the Brewers into comeback mode. Still, Suppan has pitched well of late, allowing three or fewer runs in seven of his last nine starts. He has thrown fewer than 90 pitches in each of his last four starts.

Saturday, September 15 Miller Park | 6:05 PM CT

To be announced

Reds (64-79) @ Ben Sheets, RHP (12-4, 3.54)

Brewers (73-70)

Scouting Report:

Brewers: Sheets faced the Reds on Sunday in Cincinnati and limited them to two runs on four hits through the first five innings, consistently getting ahead with a 93-mph fastball and putting hitters away with a curve in the dirt. But he got a fastball up in the zone in the sixth inning to Edwin Encarnacion, who deposited a three-run homer to straightaway center. Still, Sheets took the team lead in victories, winning for the eighth time in nine decisions.

Tuesday, September 11 Great American Ball Park | 6:10 PM CT

Mark Mulder, LHP (0-1, 13.50)

Cardinals (69-72) @ Matt Belisle, RHP (7-8, 5.44)

Reds (64-79)

Scouting Report:

Cardinals: If you want reasons for optimism, Mulder's 2007 debut provided them. If you want reasons for pessimism, those were evident as well. The question is how much Mulder improves going forward. If he can sustain the sharpness and velocity he showed in his first inning, he can give St. Louis a boost. More likely it will be hit-or-miss, with some excellent innings and some shaky ones.

Reds: Belisle allowed five earned runs on six hits with one walk and no strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings but got a no-decision in the Reds' 11-7 loss to the Mets last Tuesday. The right-hander was given a 5-3 lead in the bottom of the fifth but sparked a five-run Mets sixth by giving up Carlos Beltran's game-tying two-run homer on a flat 2-1 sinker. Belisle also allowed a three-run homer in the second inning to Paul Lo Duca. He's allowed 24 long balls in 26 big league starts this season.

Wednesday, September 12 Great American Ball Park | 6:10 PM CT

Mike Maroth, LHP (5-6, 6.87)

Cardinals (69-72) @ Bronson Arroyo, RHP (8-14, 4.40)

Reds (64-79)

Scouting Report:

Cardinals: Tony La Russa will shuffle his rotation this week, pushing back Adam Wainwright and Braden Looper to give them an extra day of rest. Needing a starter on Wednesday, La Russa will go with what he calls a "bullpen game," in which multiple pitchers are likely to see action, with Mike Maroth a likely candidate to open the game. Maroth has a 9.29 ERA in seven starts for the Cards this year.

Reds: Arroyo pitched 7 2/3 innings during a smooth 11-4 win over the Brewers on Friday night. The right-hander had a 10-0 lead through three innings as he allowed three earned runs and five hits with one walk and eight strikeouts. He retired 11 of his first 12 batters and didn't allow a run until Prince Fielder led off the Brewers' fifth with a solo homer. It was a departure in terms of run support for Arroyo. The Reds scored two runs or less in 13 of his 30 starts.

Thursday, September 13 Great American Ball Park | 11:35 AM CT

Adam Wainwright, RHP (13-10, 3.75)

Cardinals (69-72) @ Aaron Harang, RHP (14-4, 3.64)

Reds (64-79)

Scouting Report:

Cardinals: Wainwright said he threw the ball better than he had in many games this season, but came up on the short end of the decision against the D-backs his last time out, as he was outdueled by defending Cy Young Award winner Brandon Webb. Wainwright allowed three runs -- two earned -- in six innings, and he felt he did a good job of painting the corners. Wainwright's 2.48 ERA since the All-Star Game is the second best in the National League over that period, trailing only Webb.

Reds: Harang pitched seven strong innings on Saturday, but he was burned twice by the Brewers' Prince Fielder, who hit his 43rd home run, walked and scored on a sacrifice fly. Harang allowed two earned runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck out seven in a 4-3 Reds loss. Harang became the first Reds pitcher since Jose Rijo to throw 200 or more innings in three consecutive seasons.

Friday, September 14 Busch Stadium | 7:10 PM CT

Carlos Zambrano, RHP (15-12, 4.26)

Cubs (73-70) @ Braden Looper, RHP (12-10, 4.70)

Cardinals (69-72)

Scouting Report:

Cubs: Zambrano snapped his career-high five-game losing streak in his last start Saturday in Pittsburgh, and is being given an extra day of rest so he can face the Cardinals. He's 2-0 this season against St. Louis. Against the Pirates, Big Z gave up one run on two hits over six-plus innings and struck out eight. The only concern was the five walks issued. He has walked 10 in his last two games.

Cardinals: Looper entered his last start on Saturday against Arizona having not allowed a run in his previous two starts and just two runs in his last three. However, he gave up seven runs -- six earned -- in just 3 2/3 innings. He got a no-decision in a game the Cards eventually lost. Looper said his mechanics were out of whack, and he couldn't make the in-game adjustments to fix them.

Saturday, September 15 Busch Stadium | 12:10 PM CT

Ted Lilly, LHP (15-7, 3.85)

Cubs (73-70) @ Joel Pineiro, RHP (5-4, 4.79)

Cardinals (69-72)

Scouting Report:

Cubs: This will be Lilly's second start against the Cardinals in a week. He gave up three runs on five hits over seven innings on Monday in a makeup game, striking out seven. Can he top that? Jim Edmonds and So Taguchi both homered off the lefty, who did hold Albert Pujols to a double. Lilly also notched his first career double, driving in a run, as well. His next win will set a career high.

Cardinals: Pineiro was like Superman in his last start: Up, up and away. He left all of his pitches up in the zone in a five-run fourth inning against the Cubs and they made him pay. He gave up two home runs, three doubles and a single before leaving. It was by far his worst start since coming over to St. Louis in a deadline deal with Boston. He took full responsibility for his performance and promised to right the ship before Saturday.

Saturday, September 15 Busch Stadium | 7:10 PM CT

Sean Marshall, LHP (7-7, 3.92)

Cubs (73-70) @ To be announced

Cardinals (69-72)

Scouting Report:

Cubs: Marshall will make his first start since Aug. 31. That game was against the Astros, and the lefty gave up four runs -- one earned -- on five hits and four walks over 3 2/3 innings. He was switched to the 'pen when the Cubs acquired Steve Trachsel, and has made one relief outing so far. The Cubs are hoping Marshall can benefit from the time off.
