Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Game 4: Cardinals 2, Pirates 1

0

R.J. Anderson

The Cardinals even the series, behind a near-historic effort by rookie Michael Wacha.

History was five outs away. That's how close Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha was to no-hitting the Pirates in Game 4 of the NL Divisional Series.

Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Game Two Recap: Braves 4, Dodgers 3

Atlanta evens the series.

The four National League teams that qualified for the two Division Series are steered by the top-four vote getters in our annual regular-season awards balloting. But we had to wait until the seventh inning of the fourth NLDS contest to witness two of them matching wits for the first time this October.

Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Game One Recap: Cardinals 9, Pirates 1

Oh, that A.J. Burnett.

It sounds trite, but some games come down to the starting pitchers. Game 1 of the NLDS between the Pirates and Cardinals sure did.

Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Preview: Dodgers at Braves

Daniel Rathman

Can a rotation mismatch seal the deal for the Dodgers?

The Cardinals won six in a row to end the regular season, snatching the National League’s top seed away from the Braves, who scuffled to a 13-14 record in September. That put Atlanta on a collision course with Los Angeles, which won 62 of its last 90 games and only eased up on the gas pedal when the West division title was well in hand.

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: Giants-Reds Division Series Preview

Two lopsided teams face off in a series with no clear favorite.

It can be hard to see change, sometimes. If these two teams had met two years ago, it would have been a battle between the best offense in the National League and the best pitching-and-defense in the National League. Now, though, the teams have almost completely flipped: the Reds have the league’s best pitching, the Giants have the league’s second-best offense, and each team is pretty lopsided that way. Nonetheless, don’t be surprised if the mainstream narrative focuses on the Giants’ homegrown aces and the Reds’ powerful middle of the order. A better narrative would focus on the showdown between perhaps the two best hitters in the National League; or the ticking clock that the Giants face each game as the Reds’ bullpen anticipates the final three or four innings; or the unexpected second-act brilliance of Brian Sabean’s career.
