St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs, Game 3: Broadcast, Live Stream, Start Time, & More


After an uplifting Game 1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday, the St. Louis Cardinals regressed back to their shaky September form on Saturday, taking a rough 6-3 loss to the Cubs. The Cardinals certainly have the opportunity to bounce back on Monday, but it will be exceptionally difficult considering that probable NL Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta, who had a 22-6 record, 1.77 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and .185 opponent batting average during the regular season before throwing a complete game shutout in the Cubs’ Wild Card game victory, will be pitching for Chicago.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, will be turning to their first-half ace, Michael Wacha, who struggled greatly as the season came to a close. Wacha, who was 10-3 with a 2.93 ERA before the break, had a 7.88 ERA, a 1.79 WHIP, and a .275 opponent average in five September starts. In his final regular season start, he gave up six earned runs in four innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Cards will have to hope he has a better first postseason start than Jaime Garcia, who allowed five runs (though none earned) over two innings, which were allowed mainly due to a throwing error he made in the second inning.
