Dirk HayhurstNational MLB ColumnistOctober 10, 2013

The National League Championship Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals will feature some interesting pitching matchups early on.

While the Dodgers have aces Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw set to go in Games 1 and 2, the Cardinals will send out the relatively inexperienced duo of Joe Kelly and Michael Wacha, respectively. It's worth noting that Wacha has sniffed near-no-hitters in his previous two starts. 

Former major league pitcher Dirk Hayhurst breaks down the early pitching matchups in the latest edition of "Behind the Mic."

Friday's Game 1 in St. Louis is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET on TBS.
