NLDS Game Five: St. Louis Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

New, comments

The Cardinals and Buccos square off in St. Louis to determine who will move on to the NLCS against the Dodgers.

Elsa

Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright and Pirates rookie phenom Gerrit Cole match up for the decisive Game 5 in the NLDS. The winner will move on to face Donnie Baseball's Dodgers in the NLCS. The Pirates seek their first playoff series win since the 1979 World Series while the Cardinals seek their first since... uh... last year. Shouldn't be difficult to determine who to support. The odds will be against the Bucs though, since they're playing on the road against one of the best pitchers in baseball.

Let's go Bucs.
