This is it. It's Game 5 of the NLDS. The winner goes on to face the Dodgers in the NLCS, while the loser goes home wondering what might have been.
There's no doubt Game 5 will be tight and that both managers will be pulling out all the stops.
St. Louis is sending Adam Wainwright (19-9, 2.94 ERA) to the hill, while the Pirates will counter with Gerrit Cole (10-7, 3.22 ERA). Wainwright was dominant in a Game 1 win, while Cole was the same in Game 2.
So, who will come out on top?
While we're not sure of that yet, here are a few keys for each team to ensure they come out of Wednesday's game with a win.
