ST. LOUIS (AP) - Joe Kelly is going to start Game 3 of the NL division series for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Manager Mike Matheny made the announcement Thursday prior to the opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Kelly appeared to be the likeliest choice given rookies Shelby Miller and Michael Wacha were set to be available out of the bullpen in Game 1.
Kelly was 10-5 with a 2.69 ERA and was perhaps the strongest link in the rotation for about a month-and-a-half.
