Cubs continue doubleheader with Cardinals

Sep 15, 2007 - 2:06 PM Chicago Cubs (76-71) at St Louis (69-76) Game Two 8:10 pm EDT

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) - Two starters who have recently returned to their respective rotations will face off when the Chicago Cubs take on the St. Louis Cardinals in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

Mark Mulder (0-2, 12.38 ERA) will be making his third start for the Cardinals since returning to the rotation following left shoulder surgery.

Mulder's return has been dismal so far as he has given up 13 runs - 11 earned - and 15 hits in just eight innings over two starts. The 30-year-old lefthander also has walked four and struck out just three as St. Louis was handed two lopsided setbacks at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Sean Marshall (7-7, 3.92) will make his first start in September when he returns to the rotation for the Cubs.

Marshall's last appearence came out of the bullpen when he allowed two hits in 1 1/3 innings in a 10-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday.

In his last start, Marshall struggled with his control, walking four batters in 3 2/3 innings and allowing four runs - one earned - and five hits as the Cubs suffered a 6-1 loss to the Houston Astros on August 31.
