After a long day at the office yesterday, the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals will go at it again tonight in Game 4 of the NLCS. The weather forecast this time is clear, but cool, with the temperature in the upper 40’s in Busch Stadium where the first pitch will be thrown at 8:05 PM ET. You can watch the game in the warmth of your own home on the FOX television network.
Yesterday’s game began at 4:05, and about six and a half hours later ended with the Cardinals emerging with a 3-1 victory. Even before the rains came, St. Louis led 2-1 after Matt Carpenter, in the lineup for Carlos Beltran, hit a 2 run homer off Matt Cain. Beltran is now day to day with a knee issue. Previously in the series the 2 teams split the 2 games played in San Francisco, so St. Louis now holds a 2 games to 1 lead entering play today.

Tonight’s pitching probables find righty, Tim “The Freak” Lincecum (1-0, 1.08 ERA), getting his first playoff start for the Giants, but he has been effective out of the bullpen in 3 appearances. He’s allowed just 1 run on 3 hits, while fanning 9 in 8 and 1/3 innings of work. Another righthander, Adam Wainwright (0-0, 7.88 ERA) takes the hill for the Cards. He was anything but effective in his last start. Wainwright yielded 6 earned runs in 2 and 1/3 innings last Friday to the Nationals.
Against right-handers, the Giants are 54-49 overall, and 1-2 in their last 10 games. Also against righties, the Cardinals are 57-57 on the year, and 5-3 in their last 10.
