It's a decisive game 5 in St. Louis!

Jared Wickerham

Thanks to Fredi Gonzalez and Juan Uribe, we only get one game today. I shouldn't have to tell you which one of these two NL Central rivals is the lesser of two evils. But I am still a little bitter with the Pirates over 1909.

Here is the pitching matchup.

Pirates/Cardinals:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2013 - Gerrit Cole 10-7 19 19 0 0 0 0 117.1 109 43 42 7 28 100 3.22 1.17


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2013 - Adam Wainwright 19-9 35 34 5 2 0 0 241.2 223 83 79 15 35 219 2.94 1.07

Today's game is on TBS. Announcers: Dick Stockton, Bob Brenly and Matt Winer. Stockton and Brenly as a team is like if Yakov Smirnoff and George Carlin were a comedy team.
