The Nationals and Cardinals send out their best starters as both fight for their postseason lives in the final and decisive Game 5 of the NLDS. The Cardinals will try to rediscover the offensive firepower that delivered wins in Game 2 and 3, while the Nationals attempt to rely on the formula of quality starting pitching, fielding, and a dominant bullpen.
The Cardinals will need to hit better with runners in scoring position and play better defense to rebound from their game one loss to the Washington Nationals.
Mitchell Boggs faced four hitters and struck out one to pick up his first save of the season.
Garcia allowed two runs and five hits, walked two and struck out one. He also had an RBI single and an RBI groundout in two at-bats.
