Share

Cardinals manager Mike Shildt announced his starters for the first four games of the NL Championship Series on Thursday. Down 3-0 for much of Game 5 on Wednesday against the 107-win Dodgers, the Nationals stormed back to score seven unanswered runs thanks in part to a grand slam by Howie Kendrick in the 10th inning to secure a 7-3 win. The right-hander was 16-7 with a 3.35 ERA in the regular season. The Nationals have also struggled in recent trips to Busch Stadium, going 3-7 in their past 10, and scoring two or fewer runs in five of those contests. The Nationals have Anibal Sanchez on the mound, and he struggled in his 1 start against the Cardinals this season which should follow similar trends here as he has to go on the road. It's Mikolas in Game 1 against the Nationals in St. Louis and Adam Wainwright in Game 2.

The only notable exclusions for St. Louis are right-handers Michael Wacha and John Gant.

The Cardinals now return home aiming to win three in a row for the first time in 11 games. The seven-time defending NL West champion Dodgers, who led the NL with 106 wins, remain without a World Series title since 1988.
