Nine to Know: NLCS

  1. In the NLCS, Pablo Sandoval is 3-for-9, three strikeouts in nine at bats. He doesn’t have a hit yet.
  2. In the NLCS, Buster Posey is hitting a not-good .143, but better than Hunter Pence‘s .133.
  3. Regular season and postseason combined, Marco Scutaro is hitting .362 since he joined the Giants on July 28.
  4. Good thing the Cardinals are doing so well because otherwise someone might notice that in the NLCS that Allen Craig is hitting .083.
  5. This postseason, Lance Lynn has allowed three Giants homers, all the other Cardinals relievers have allowed one.
  6. Speaking of Lance Lynn, he was 18-7 in the regular season and 1-1 against the Nationals, which means if he wins tonight he is a 2012 twenty-game winner.
  7. Cardinals pitchers have thrown 97 first-pitch strikes and 53 first-pitch balls.
  8. Last night, Adam Wainwright threw 96 pitches: 4 curves, 34 changes, 34 cutters, and 24 sinkers. What’s missing from this repertoire? Yeah, I don’t see any fastballs either.
  9. Adam Wainwright is now all of 2-0 in postseason play and last night was his first win as a starter.
