St. Louis Cardinals Home Opener: Live Stream, Start Time, TV info and More


The St. Louis Cardinals kick off their 2015 home campaign on Monday afternoon at Busch Stadium, facing the divisional rival Milwaukee Brewers for the first game of a three-game series. The Cardinals, who have gotten off to a promising 4-2 start this year, will see if they can further tame the slumping Brewers, who have gotten off to a terrible 1-5 start in 2015. Thanks to an adjustment to the pitching rotation schedule created by a rainout at Wrigley Field last week, Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright will receive the honor of being the first Cardinal pitcher to throw in front of the home crowd this year. He’ll face Brewers ace Matt Garza, who had some major struggles in his first start of the season.
