Cardinals Take Game Five

The Cardinals moved within a game of returning to the World Series by defeating the Milwaukee Brewers 7-1 in game five of the National League Championship Series Friday night in St. Louis.  The Brewers still have life, but must win the remaining two games in Milwaukee. Tonight’s storyline was the Brewers committing four costly errors that lead to seven runs.  The Cardinals scored three in the second, one in the fourth and sixth and two more in the eighth. The Brew Crew scored their lone run in the top of the fifth, courtesy of a Corey Hart single that scored Jonathan Lucroy.  The Brewers were threatening in the fifth, but Cardinals manager, Tony LaRussa, brought in reliever Octavio Dotel.  Dotel struck out Ryan Braun to end the inning.  Brewers starter, Zach Greinke, went 5.2 innings, gave up five runs (2 earned), seven hits, walked two and struck out none.  
 
Both teams will have a travel day on Saturday as they head back to Milwaukee for game six on Sunday.  The Brewers will be glad to be back at Miller Park where they posted a 57-24 record in the regular season.  Edwin Jackson will take the ball for the Cards against Shaun Marcum of the Brewers.

NLCS Stat of the Day:

  • The St. Louis Cardinals have not had a starting pitcher make it through five innings in the first five games of the NLCS.  No team has ever made it to the World Series when this has been the case.
