Coming off an 8-0 loss on Monday night, the Chicago Cubs (69-88) will look to rebound in their second-to-last home game of the 2014 campaign behind right-hander Kyle Hendricks, who will oppose Shelby Miller as the Cubs take on the division rival St. Louis Cardinals (88-69).

Hendricks (7-2, 2.28 ERA) has been lights-out for Chicago this season and in two starts against St. Louis, the rookie has allowed just three earned runs and 12 base hits spanning 12 1/3 innings of work. He is aiming for his ninth quality start in 13 trips to the mound in 2014 to end his season.
Miller (10-9, 3.68 ERA) took a line drive off the shin near the end of his last outing, but has been impressive in the month of September, allowing just two earned runs in 26 innings of work.
With St. Louis just a handful of games from clinching the National League Central, the Cubs will look to play spoiler in front of the home faithful.
First pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m. CT. WCIU has the television broadcast in the Chicagoland area and WGN-AM 720 will have the radio call.
