Playoff Prospectus: NLCS Game Six Preview: Cardinals at Giants

Daniel Rathman

Can Ryan Vogelsong replicate his Game Two success and take his team to a seventh game?

Buoyed by an unexpectedly superb outing from Barry Zito, the Giants regained home-field advantage in the NLCS with a 5-0 win on Friday night. But Bruce Bochy’s team needs two more victories to clinch its second pennant in three years, while Mike Matheny’s team is just one victory away from its second pennant in a row. Will the Cardinals advance tonight, or will this series require a decisive Game Seven on Monday? To answer those questions, here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for Game Six:

The BP staff is back to chat during NLCS Game Five on Friday night.

The BP roundtablers are back for a Friday night chat, so cancel your hot dates (or better yet, bring them!). We'll be chatting from the first pitch to the last out of NLCS Game Five as the Cardinals try to clinch the pennant. You, us, Barry Zito. Be there at 8:00 PM ET, and for a few hours after.

Ben and Sam discuss how the postponement of Game Four hurt the Yankees, talk about how terrible at baseball Hunter Pence appears to be and whether he's always looked like that, and conclude by revisiting the widespread anti-Cardinals sentiment among baseball fans and examining their own emotional allegiances.

Tim Lincecum returns to the rotation opposing Adam Wainwright in a matchup that's too close for PECOTA to call.

The Cardinals lost their best postseason hitter to a knee injury early in Game Three, but still came out on top, because his replacement socked a game-winning two-run homer in his first trip to the plate. Now, the Giants must win to avoid facing three consecutive elimination games for the second straight series. Here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for Game Four:

PECOTA still isn't quite buying the recent success of Kyle Lohse, the Cardinals' Game Three starter.

After watching Madison Bumgarner get lit up by the Cardinals in Game One, the Giants returned the favor against Chris Carpenter and a shaky St. Louis defense to even the series on Monday night. Which team is likely to grab a 2-1 edge in Game Three? Here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for tonight’s contest:

Playoff Prospectus: NLCS Game Two Preview: Cardinals at Giants

1

Daniel Rathman

Until recently, Game Two starters Chris Carpenter and Ryan Vogelsong weren't expected to pitch in the playoffs. Which one does PECOTA prefer?

Six-to-nothing leads have had a way of evaporating this postseason, but the Cardinals—despite a four-run Giants rally in the bottom of the fourth inning—held on to win Game One, 6-4. Will San Francisco fall behind, 2-0, for the second consecutive series, or will the Giants square things up before heading to St. Louis? To answer those questions, here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for Game Two:

The NLCS kicks off with a matchup of two starters who have been vulnerable to opposite-handed hitters.

The Giants clung to a 6-0 lead to win their Division Series with the Reds. The Cardinals overcame a 6-0 deficit to knock off the Nationals. Now, those two teams prepare to tangle in the NLCS, which begins tonight at AT&T Park. Here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for Game One:

The resilient Cardinals manage one more comeback to stun the Nationals and advance to the NLCS.

After Game Four, I wrote:

The Cardinals smack Jordan Zimmermann around to even their series at one game apiece.

If not for St. Louis’ offensive explosion in Game Two, every writer and columnist covering the sport would be writing about Mike Matheny’s arrival as a fearless, big-game manager.
