The Phillies look to take a "commanding" 2-0 lead against the Cardinals in the best of five division series, and will do so behind Cliff Lee, author of six complete game shutouts in the 2011 regular season. He'll be opposed by Chris Carpenter, the Cardinals' 36 year old ace and author of his own 11 strikeout masterpiece last week in the Cards' final regular season game.
Most of the lineup has been hitting lately. Let's hope that continues.
