Open Thread for Tuesday's Playoff Games

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

We have two games today.

At 4:00 Eastern we have the Cardinals in San Francisco. The series is tied at a game each.

John Lackey gets the start for the Cards. He was 14-10 with a 3.82 ERA this season. No Yadier Molina. If you needed another reason to hate the Cards, A.J. Pierzynski is behind the plate.

Tim Hudson starts for the Giants. He was 9-13 with a 3.57 ERA.
