St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Francisco Giants Game 1: Broadcast, Live Stream, Start Time, & More


The St. Louis Cardinals meet the San Francisco Giants for Game 1 of the 2014 National League Championship Series on Saturday night. This will be a rematch of the 2012 NLCS, where the Giants defeated the Cardinals in seven games and went on to win the World Series. This series is a testament to how prolific the two organizations are, as one of them now will have been the National League representative in every World Series dating back to 2010.

The Giants won the season series this year 4-3, scoring 30 runs compared to the Cardinals’ 20. Seeing as the last time the two teams met was the first week of July, however, those numbers have very little bearing, as the Giants have had significant lineup and pitching turnover since then, while the Cardinals have also experienced their fair share of change with the subtractions of Allen Craig and Joe Kelly.
