The Cardinals fought back in Game 2 to even the NLCS series at a game a piece. The Cardinals will now send the depricated Chris Carpenter to the mound, the victim of some harsh words by Zach Greinke. We’ll see if Yovani Gallardo is enough to counter a focused and peeved Chris Carpenter. If Carpenter really does the things that Greinke accused him of (prodding batters verbally, yelling at them, in displays of intimidation), he will be doing them even more so tonight. It’s all ready been established these teams have bad blood with one another, which was why the umpire’s warning to both sides following a beaned batter was more significant than any old warning.

The Cardinals and Brewers will face off in the NL Championship Series beginning at 4 PM on Sunday afternoon. While the Cardinals did knock out the favored team in the MLB playoffs, Milwaukee presents a host of challenges that they did not encounter against the Phillies. For this reason, MLB Oddsmakers have set the line for both game one and for the series, in the Brewers favor. With such a potent offense and decent pitching, the Brewers promise to be a tough foe for both the Cardinals, and for the Tigers or Rangers, should they advance past this series.
