The St. Louis Cardinals exploded for a 12-4 victory on Monday over the Washington Nationals to even the series at one game apiece.
The win was especially vital, as the series now shifts from St. Louis to Washington D.C. for the final three games of this best-of-five series.
Chris Carpenter is scheduled to take the hill for the Cardinals against the Nationals' Edwin Jackson.
Carpenter did not make his season debut until late in September due to shoulder issues, and he did not face the Nationals this season.
Jackson, a former Cardinal, has two starts against St. Louis this season.
He had an eight-inning, one-run outing on Aug. 30 and a 1.1-inning, nine-run outing on Sept. 28. The Nationals are hoping his next outing will be more in line with the Aug. 30 affair.
Game 3 is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 1:07 p.m. ET.
