Cards and Pirates Meet Today in NLDS

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Andrew McCutchen and the Pittsburgh Pirates are riding high from their first postseason victory in 21 years.

And now, after beating the Cincinnati Reds in the wild-card game, the Pirates are set to face another familiar foe in an unfamiliar month: the NL Central champion Cardinals in October. Game 1 of their division series is Thursday night in St. Louis.

The Cardinals edged the Pirates for the division title, with Pittsburgh winning the regular-season series, but they have quite the advantage in postseason experience.

Adam Wainwright has to like this matchup, too. St. Louis' ace is set to start the opener and will be available on regular rest for a possible deciding Game 5 against a team he went 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in three starts this season.
