Cardinals Battle Braves In NL Wild Card Game
Kyle Lohse will start for St Louis, while Atlanta counters with Kris Medlen. The Braves have won a record 23 consecutive starts by Medlen.
The Cardinals begin another postseason run without former manager Tony La Russa and slugger Albert Pujols. La Russa retired after St Louis won the World Series last year, while Pujols signed as a free agent with the Angels.
The Braves were eliminated from postseason contention on the last day of the regular season in 2011. This could be the final game for future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones, who is retiring at the end of the season after 20 years in an Atlanta uniform.
