Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia went only two innings, though he managed to squeeze a game's worth of pitches in there, and that meant it was a bullpen game for the Cards. They were pretty good at the bullpen games last year, as they didn't have a starter record an out in the sixth inning of any of the NLCS. It looks like Mike Matheny found the index cards that Tony La Russa left.
And if it's a bullpen game that early, that probably means Lance Lynn, who was converted from a reliever to a starter to a reliever to a starter this year. He might have been a better option to start instead of Lance Lynn, in retrospect.
Lynn was mostly cruising until the top of the fifth, when he allowed one of these to Ryan Zimmerman ...
... and one of these to Adam Laroche.
Alas, both were solo shots, and Lance escaped the inning without further damage. The Nationals are just a swing away from tying it up, down just 7-3, but they'd need base runners first.
