Like the Rockies, the Cardinals have been very good at the plate this season -- they're among the NL leaders in a number of categories and second only to Colorado in runs scored and OPS.

Josh Outman (0-3, 9.32 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for the Rockies; Kyle Lohse (7-2, 2.82) will get the ball for St. Louis.

Game 1 Date & Time: Monday, June 2, 6:15 p.m. MT
