In a rematch of the dramatic World Series from only a couple of seasons ago, the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals face off in what is sure to be a terrific matchup.

In the first game of the series on Friday night, the Rangers came out on top thanks to a go-ahead single in the ninth by Nelson Cruz. Saturday's contest has the potential to be equally as thrilling.

The young stud Shelby Miller will take the mound for the Redbirds. He will be going up against Martin Perez of Texas, who struggled in his lone start this year.

The Cardinals (47-27) have the best record in baseball thus far and will look to continue their dominance at the top of the NL Central. The Rangers (42-32) are only a game back in the AL West, and they will try to narrow the gap.

The stars will be out tonight at Busch Stadium, so tune in to Fox at 7:15 EDT for an interleague battle.
