Cards up 1-0

Chris Carpenter shows why he is the Ace of the Redbirds staff, holding the Astros down for the 5-3 win. Much like Buehrle in Chicago, Carpenter is the best pitcher on the staff. Chris went 8.0 innings giving up two runs on five hits with three walks and three K's. Not a bad outing following up his shutout performance against the Pad's. It was the longest outing for a Cards pitcher this postseason. It was the first LCS loss for Andy Pettitte in six starts. Reggie Sanders helped out the St. Louis cause by hitting a two run homer with two out in the bottom of the first. It's the fourth consecutive playoff game that Reggie has multiple RBI's. Unreal.

David Eckstein sparked the club once again, going 2-4 with two runs scored and a RBI. Abraham Nunez contributed two hits and a run to the cause as well.

Tonight, it's Roy Oswalt up against Mark Mulder. Time to see if the cost to get Mulder from the A's was worth it. We'll also see if Roy can get a win after two no-decisions in the NLDS.

Both the LCS's are hot, and I'm ready for more. I'll try and write more tonight after the game.
