Tyson Ross (5-7, 3.57 ERA), who is coming off a 4-2 win against Arizona where he pitched six innings, allowing two hits and two runs, will face the Cardinals in St. Louis on Thursday. Jaime Garcia is still suffering from a left groin strain, so left-hander Tim Cooney will come up from Triple-A Memphis to make the start.
Cooney made one start with St. Louis back in April and left early from his game Sunday in Memphis after 26 pitches.
