NLCS Game 5 GameThread: St. Louis Cardinals at San Francisco Giants

New, 116 comments

The San Francisco Giants took a 3-1 lead in the NLCS last night in AT&T Park and they can lock up a trip to the World Series with a win over the St. Louis Cardinals tonight. Madison Bumgarner vs Adam Wainwright at 8:00 PM.

Doug Pensinger

The San Francisco Giants are one win away from heading back to the World Series again, this time against the Kansas City Royals, who have already earned their spot with a four-game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles in the ALCS. But first, the Giants have to beat the St. Louis Cardinals one more time.

Can Giants' lefty Madison Bumgarner take out the Cards? Can Adam Wainwright help the Cardinals keep the season alive? Can St. Louis send the series back to Busch Stadium? Or will their season end tonight in AT&T Park?

Game Time: 8:00 PM EDT On FOXSports1.
