WASHINGTON D.C. (KMOX) - The starting pitcher for the Washington Nationals in the NLDS Game 4, Thursday, probably didn’t grow up dreaming of trying to deny the St. Louis Cardinals a berth in the National League Championship Series, but that’s his mission in the 2012 postseason.

Twenty-six-year-old Ross Detwiler was born in St. Louis, grew up a Cards fan in Wentzville (Holt H.S.), and played college ball at Missouri State University.

The Nationals left-hander was 10-8 in the regular season with a 3.40 ERA and 105 strikeouts.

He’ll oppose Kyle Lohse in Game 4.

Detwiler was a 2007 draft pick of Washington (#6 overall & the highest ever pick to come out of Missouri State) and made his major league debut later that year.
