2011 National League Division Series Game One Thread -- Cardinals at Phillies

New, 946 comments

The Phillies kick off their fifth straight postseason late this afternoon in Philadelphia against the St. Louis Cardinals, who shocked the baseball world (and themselves, more than likely) with a September surge that led to the team's Wild Card berth and a date with Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and the Phillies crew.

Due to their late season run, which went to the final day, the Cardinals were not able to align their starting rotation to permit ace Chris Carpenter to start game one. Rather, former Phillie Kyle Lohse will get the ball in the first game and will oppose Roy Halladay, who will look to repeat last season's NLDS Game One magic. Carpenter is slated to pitch game two on three days rest.
