Starting pitcher Jaime Garcia is removed from the Cardinals' NLDS roster because of an injury allowing the defending World Series champions to add a fresh arm to their bullpen for the rest of the series.
Cardinals' center fielder Jon Jay made the defensive play of the series with his leaping catch in the sixth inning of Game 2.
Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia underwent an MRI on his throwing shoulder Monday and, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatched, will be removed from the postseason roster.
The Cardinals decision to use only one left-handed reliever during the NLDS will continue to play a prominent role in the strategy of both sides.
The Nationals second baseman, in his first-ever playoff game, went 0-for-4 and was asked to bunt in his final at-bat. He says he's healthy.
The rookie went 0 for 5 with two strikeouts in his first game but not because of the strep throat.
The Nationals victory yesterday, with three games left at home, swung the 2-3 format wildly in their favor.
