Both the Nats and Cardinals are sticking with their lineups from the series opener in Game 2.
Our coverage blanketed yesterday’s Game 1 victory, but three important contributions from Nationals players went overlooked:
The Cardinals are disappointed they lost Game 1, but they're far from worried about having to come from behind in a playoff series.
In his first-ever postseason start, the left-hander struggled immensely with his command but found a way to allow only two runs.
From the third through the late innings of Game 1 of the NLDS, shadows played some sort of havoc with hitters.
The Cardinals might be the toughest match-up for the Nationals in the entire field, American League or National League.
For 162 games the Nationals Journal provided a place for you to discuss the game. Now, in addition to that, you can follow the game through the eyes of our reporters.

Ryan Zimmerman doesn't have to watch, Christian Garcia could be a major factor and the Nationals respect Adam Wainwright.
