Cardinals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The MLB-best St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs have both overcome shortages on the offensive end thanks to some spectacular work on the mound.

The Cubs, however, haven't measured up in either category in the season series with their rivals.

Former Boston teammates John Lackey and Jon Lester face off in the opener of a four-game series Monday night when the visiting Cardinals look to maintain their dominance over the Cubs.
