Roy Oswalt will go up against Edwin Jackson in Game 4 in St. Louis. If there is one guy in the Phillies' rotation that you wouldn't mind facing, it's Roy Oswalt.
That isn't really a knock on Oswalt—it's just that he's in the same pitching staff as Hallady, Lee, and Hammels. He also went 9-10 with a 3.69 ERA during the regular season.
This is a great matchup for the Cardinals. Rafael Furcal, Albert Pujols, and Yadier Molina all are hitting over .300 lifetime against Oswalt in extended samples. Lance Berkman has been such an important part of the St. Louis offense this season, and he's 3-for-5 against Oswalt. They were also teammates in Houston for quite a while, so Berkman probably has a good idea of what to look for.
Edwin Jackson will be pitching in one of the biggest games of his career, but he's been great since joining the Cardinals mid-season. I like the Cards' chances in Game 4.
