Rays-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- After enduring dreadful mid-season slumps in each of the past two years, Lance Lynn is determined to not let history repeat itself in 2014.

The right-hander looks to give St. Louis his second strong showing since the All-Star break Wednesday night as the Cardinals try to deny the visiting Tampa Bay Rays a seventh straight victory.

Lynn (11-6, 3.13 ERA) has been one of the top early-season pitchers for St. Louis (54-46) over the past three years, going a combined 32-14 with a 3.52 ERA prior to the All-Star break.
