Scott Kane-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Cardinals head to Washington, D.C. looking to break a 1-1 tie in National League Division series in Game 3 on Wednesday afternoon.

After routing the Washington Nationals in Game 2 on Monday, the St. Louis Cardinals will hit the road looking to grab the series advantage in Game 3 of the National League Division series on Wednesday afternoon.

Chris Carpenter (0-2, 3.71 ERA in the regular season) will take the mound for the Cardinals for the first time since St. Louis clinched a playoff spot in a 3-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Oct. 2., in which Carpenter tossed six innings and allowed the Reds' three earned runs.

The Nationals will counter with Edwin Jackson (10-11, 4.03 ERA). Over his last six starts of the regular season, Washington only scored a victory in two of them.

In Game 2 of the NLDS, the Cardinals pounced on Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann, chasing him from the game after three innings, getting five earned runs on seven hits as St. Louis went on to even the series, 12-4.

First pitch is scheduled for 12:07 p.m. CT at Nationals Park, and the game will be televised on MLB Network.
