Brewers vs. Cardinals: St. Louis Up 11-6 In 7th

Will a pitcher named "Eyechart" be the big hero in Game 6?

No. Probably not. But Mark Rzepczynski might well be the winning pitcher in Game 6, having now thrown two shutout innings in a game that looked, for a while, like nobody would ever throw any shutout innings.

Okay, so that's not exactly right. Rzepczynski did allow a run in the fifth, but came back with a perfect fifth when Tony La Russa showed faith in one of his pitchers for the first time since September.

This is a crazy game, but the Cardinals' 11-6 lead is looking pretty good, considering how well La Russa's bullpen has performed in this series, and considering that he still hasn't deployed his best relievers.
