St. Louis is 5-0 in their last 5 games following a loss,  5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series,  6-2 in their last 8 home games vs. a right-handed starter,  12-4 in their last 16 games with the total set at 7.0-8.5,  8-3 in their last 11 home games, 13-5 in their last 18 overall, 13-5 in their last 18 games on grass, 11-5 in their last 16 games as a favorite, 13-3 in Garcia's last 16 starts as a home favorite of -110 to -150 and are 13-5 in Garcia's last 18 home starts vs. a team with a winning record. This has become a must-win for St. Louis. St. Louis had the lead in the eighth inning before an error by shortstop Pete Kozma began a two-run rally, capped by Tyler Moore’s single. The Cardinals lost the first game of both the NLDS and the NLCS on the road last season before bouncing back to take Game 2.  Garcia missed over two month during the regular season with a shoulder strain but hit his stride down the stretch, going 3-0 with a 2.10 ERA over his last four starts. The left-hander struck out 21 and issued only four walks in that span.
