The right-hander returns for his first start since Aug. 3, when he strained a left rib-cage muscle in a start at St. Louis. Garza last pitched in a three-inning simulated game, so his pitch count will be limited.

Lackey had a troublesome start to his last outing, but kept the Cubs scoreless over his final four-plus innings to position the Cards for the win. He has allowed two or fewer earned runs in five of his six starts since joining the Cardinals.

All five of Fiers' starts this season have met the definition of "quality," including a seven-inning, three-run outing against the Giants on Saturday. He was on the wrong side of Jake Peavy's 7 1/3-inning no-hit bid.

Lynn had a laborious afternoon on Monday, but he kept the Cards in the game by limiting the Pirates to three runs in six innings. He lasted that deep despite throwing 52 pitches through two innings, and he stranded eight runners.
