NLCS Game 3 – Quick Hits

TODAY’S GAME…The San Francisco Giants visit the St. Louis Cardinals in the 3rd game of this best-of-7 National League Championship Series…Giants’ right-hander Matt Cain (1-1, 5.06) will face Cardinals’ right-hander Kyle Lohse (1-0, 2.13).

Today’s Starting Lineup

LOOKING FOR THE 1ST ONE…Busch Stadium is one only only two National League stadiums in which RHP Matt Cain has never earned a win at (min. of 3 starts) (also Houston’s Minute Maid Park)…Cain is 0-2 with an 8.27 ERA (15er, 16.1ip) in 3 career starts here at Busch Stadium.

Check out today’s complete game notes, which contain more stats than toasted ravioli.

FROM THE BUREAU…IF Marco Scutaro recorded a 2-run single in the 4th inning of Game 2 of this series before leaving with a left hip injury and his replacement, IF Ryan Theriot, also had a 2-run single in the 8th…according to Elias, it was the 1st time in postseason history that teammates drove in multiple runs in the same game, while playing the same position.

SERGIO ROMO… Is on his 2nd career postseason roster… Has made 4 relief appearances this postseason, tossing 5.1 innings, allowing 1 run… Earned the win in Game 4 after tossing 2.0-scoreless innings (9th, 10th frames)… Sealed the save in SF’s 6-4 clinching of Game 5 vs. the Reds last Thursday… Is .167 vs. Left Handed Hitters and .154 vs. Right Handed Hitters.

IN THE NLCS…The Giants are playing in the League Championship Series for the 2nd time in the last 3 seasons and for the 6th time in franchise history since its inception in 1969…San Francisco has logged a 3-2 series mark in their previous 5 trips, winning the last 3 series.

WHAT A RELIEF…The Giants’ bullpen allowed 7 runs (6er) on 10 hits in 8.2 innings in Games 1 and 2 of the NLDS vs. the Reds (6.23 ERA), however, in their last 5 postseason games the ‘pen has been outstanding, allowing just 2 earned runs on 13 hits with 19 strikeouts in 22.0 innings.

ANGEL PAGAN… Led off Game 2 of this series with a home run, his 2nd leadoff HR this postseason… Joins Jimmy Rollins (2 leadoff HRs in 2008 postseason w/Phi) as the only two players in MLB history with a pair of leadoff home runs in the same postseason.
