The Cubs and Cardinals trot out their best pitchers for the final matchup of the two clubs this season.
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Carpenter has thrown nine innings three times (two CG's) against the Cubs this year, allowing 0, 1 and 2 runs respectively, for a 1.00 ERA in 27 IP, with only three walks (gee, what a surprise). He's only 2-0 in those three games, because the Cubs won the other one in extra innings. He hasn't lost a game since June 8.
Z is 2-0 vs. the Cardinals this year, allowing only two runs in 23.2 IP, with only two walks; that's an 0.76 ERA.
Baseball being what it is, that means today's game will probably be a 12-11 blowout.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
