Cubs-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- After failing to stifle one of the Chicago Cubs' top prospects, the St. Louis Cardinals are on the verge of matching their longest losing streak this season.

The Cardinals will seek to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat in Saturday's opener to a doubleheader, and Justin Masterson will try to shake off another lackluster outing while attempting to contain promising rookie Jorge Soler.

The Cubs (60-74) earned their eighth win in 12 games in Friday's series opener as Soler hit a pair of home runs. The outfielder, who also singled in the 7-2 victory, is 7 for 11 with three homers and six RBIs in his first three major league games.
