Padres-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- Despite a season-high losing streak, the St. Louis Cardinals still sit atop the MLB standings largely thanks to an imposing starting staff.

They've rarely had any trouble winning when Carlos Martinez takes the mound, which he'll do Saturday against a San Diego Padres team looking to capture its first four-game series in St. Louis in a decade.

St. Louis (51-28) dropped its first two against San Diego (39-43) and has now lost four in a row for the first time since August. The Cardinals managed only four hits in Friday's 2-1 defeat and are in danger of their first five-game losing streak since a seven-game slide July 26-31, 2013.
