Cardinals Vs. Brewers: Jaime Garcia, Zack Greinke Get Rematch Game 5

The St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers are tied at two games apiece following Milwaukee's relatively low-scoring 4-2 win Thursday night, and with the even series comes Friday night's Game 1 rematch: The Cardinals send 24-year-old Jaime Garcia back out after an unimpressive first start, while Zack Greinke—still undefeated but not exactly bulletproof in the postseason—will get the ball for the Brewers. The winner goes back to Miller Park up three games to two. The loser, for good or ill, gets to hear about the Brewers' great home winning percentage all through their off day. 

Back in Milwaukee the Cardinals are scheduled to throw Edwin Jackson and Chris Carpenter back out there for Game 6 and (if necessary) 7, but the Brewers haven't yet shown their starting pitcher hand. Of course, this week's NLCS has come down primarily to the work of each bullpen, so who know how relevant those identities will end up being...

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 CDT at Busch Stadium and on TBS.
