MIAMI (BaseballStL) -- It will be odd seeing Carlos Zambrano donning a uniform that isn't the Cubbie blue pinstripes when he takes the mound against the Cardinals on Tuesday night.

The oft-temperamental Zambrano has been calm, cool and collective in the 31 career appearances, which includes 28 starts against the Cardinals.  The righty has posted a 12-6 record with a 3.40 ERA and has no-decisions in his last two outings against the visiting Redbirds. 

Zambrano is 3-0 with a 3.66 ERA in the nine games (seven starts) since his last loss to St. Louis which came on September 19, 2008 at Wrigley Field.

This season, Zambrano has posted a 4-5 record with a 4.01 ERA in 14 starts.

The Cardinals will send Kyle Lohse to the mound for the sixteenth time this season.  Lohse recorded the first ever win at Marlins Park on April 4 after allowing only one run and two hits over 7.1 innings.  He carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning.

Lohse has found some success against the Marlins in eight career starts.  He has posted a 3-2 record with a 3.99 ERA in seven starts.

Despite a 1-1 record in June, the 33-year-old right hander has cooled down the opposition's offense with a 1.63 ERA.

The game is scheduled to start at 6:10 p.m. CST.
