The pressure is palpable heading into Game 5 between Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals. With two wins each, the Pirates and the Cardinals will be slugging it out for the last chance to advance in the playoffs. Will it be the heart of the underdogs or the experience of the veterans that tips the scale tonight? Catch the thrill of the showdown live with St. Louis Cardinal tickets.
Prior to this postseason series, the Pirates hadn’t made the playoffs since 1992. In sharp contrast, the Cardinals have won four of their previous win-or-go-home games in the playoffs: Game 5 of the NLDS in Philadelphia in 2011, Games 6 and 7 of the World Series against Texas in 2011, and Game 5 of last year’s NLDS in Washington.
The Pirates suffered a 9-1 crushing loss to the Cardinals in Game 1, but rebounded with a 7-1 win in Game 2 as pitcher Gerrit Cole holding the Cardinals to one run in six innings. In Game 3, the Pirates scored twice in the bottom of the ninth to take the lead, 5-3. The pirates pitcher Charlie Morton, who allowed only one homerun in his regular season, gave up a two-run homer to the Cardinal’s Matt Holiday that decided Game 4.
The Cardinals are sending veteran Adam Wainwright, the Cardinal’s best pitcher, to the mound. Wainwright only allowed one run in seven innings in Game 1. Rookie Cole returns as starter for the Pirates in Game 5.
"There's no telling," manager Clint Hurdle said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "You got to go out and play. It can happen on the bases. It can happen on a relay throw. All aspects of the game are laid out there."
Game time for the Pirates vs the Cardinals is 8:07 p.m. (ET) at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, MO.
