After a rain delay that lasted more than three hours, the Cardinals came up with a 3-1 win in Game 3 to take a 2-1 lead over the San Francisco Giants. Game 4 will be pivotal for both clubs as the Cardinals will be looking to take a commanding 3-1 lead while the Giants hope to tie the series back up.
The Giants are no stranger to playing from behind, as they dropped their first two games at home against the Reds in the LDS before winning three straight in Cincinnati to clinch the series. Still, I'm sure falling down 3-1 is not ideal for this team.
The Giants will be looking to Tim Lincecum to get them back in the win column as he faces off against the Cardinals' Adam Wainwright. These are the top five matchups to watch for in this key Game 4 contest.
