The Birds scored nine times in the first 3 innings as the bullpen had another clutch game to win the franchise’s 18th NL Pennant. They host the Texas Rangers in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday evening.
The St. Louis bullpen faced 12 batters and retired all of them to secure the 4-3 lead and go up 2-1 in the NLCS. Game 4 starts on Thursday at 7:05pm with Kyle Lohse facing Randy Wolf.
Even though St. Louis lost for the seventh time this season when leading after seven innings, the Marlins beat the Braves in extra innings.
