Cardinals vs. Brewers, NLCS Game 5 Preview: Time, TV Schedule, Lineups And More

The Brewers look to steal another game in St. Louis and take a 3-2 series lead with a pitching rematch of Game 1 of the NLCS

The Milwaukee Brewers were able to steal a game on the road against the St. Louis Cardinals. There were concerns when the Brewers went down two games to one, that they might shutdown given their horrible road record, but they were able to tie the series winning 4-2 last night, rallying from being down 2-0 early.

Game 5 features a rematch of the Game 1 pitching match-up between Zack Greinke and Jaime Garcia, in which Greinke's Brewers came away with a 9-6 victory. Greinke will look to slow down a hot Albert Pujols, who's hitting over .400 in the playoffs with 7 of his 15 hits being doubles. Greinke was knocked around a bit in the first game, giving up eight hits, including a home run, two walk and  six earned runs in 6.0 innings.

The Cardinals will trot Jaime Garcia back out, who uncharacteristically was bounced early from game 1. Garcia had a rough outing, giving up two home runs, walking three batters, and giving up 6 runs in only 4.0 innings. The Cardinals expect him to come out and pitch like he did in the regular season to slow down the Brewers bats.
