The Washington Nationals look to take a commanding 2-0 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals in St. Louis today. The Nats came from behind to beat the Cards at home in Game 1 of the NLDS with a thrilling 3-2 win led by rookie Tyler Moore's clutch two-out, two-run pinch hit single in the eighth inning.
The Cards look to bounce back and even things up at one game each before heading to Washington.
TBS analyst Bob Brenly had these observations:
Brenly on the Nationals surrendering two runs to the Cardinals without giving up a hit in the second inning: “If this were any other sport, you’d call a timeout right now, get your team off the field and try to regroup.”
With St. Louis temperatures in the 40s and 50s during the game, Brenly on the impact the weather has on a game: “The cooler the temperature, the more the advantage shifts to the pitcher.”
Today's game is on TBS at 4 p.m. ET, with the pregame show anchored by Matt Winer, Dennis Eckersley and David Wells. First pitch will come at about 4:37 p.m., and once again, the broadcast crew will be Dick Stockton handling the play-by-play with analyst Bob Brenly and Washington's own David Aldridge doing the in-game reporting.
The Cardinals fans will of course tune to the legendary "Flagship Station," KMOX 1120AM for all the pregame action starting at 3 p.m. locally. The game broadcasters will be Mike Shannon and his partner, John Rooney.
KMOX will have an extensive two-hour post-game broadcast after the game.
ESPN St. Louis will offer their own pregame show starting at noon CT. They will offer the national broadcast and their own postgame show.
If you are out of the St. Louis market and wish to listen to the game, ESPN Radio will offer the national broadcast. You can also download their mobile app for your tablet or smartphone and listen to the game free.
