With two games remaining in the NLCS, the St. Louis Cardinals have their two best pitchers scheduled to take the mound. Michael Wacha will take the hill in Game 6, and the Cardinals have Adam Wainwright ready to go should the series go to seven games.
Wacha has been dominant this postseason, going 2-0, allowing just six hits and striking out 17 while posting a 0.64 ERA in 14 innings. He will not have an easy matchup against Clayton Kershaw in Game 6, but Wacha has the ability to match—or even out-pitch—the Dodgers ace.
If the series goes to seven games, the Cardinals will have their ace on the mound. Wainwright was a dominant 19-9 during the regular season and has already picked up two wins in three starts this postseason. His killer curveball could be the difference between the Cardinals moving on or heading home.
