cardinals vs. padres starting friday for 3 games ...could decide the last WC in the national league
Interesting spot for San Diego. They had been going bad but finally won L2 games of the series in San Francisco. But at what cost? Velasquez is going today. He has been terrible this year for Philly. Look at their pen. Closer Melancon has pitched each of the last 3 days, Pagan last 2 days, and four other pitchers pitched both yesterday and Tuesday.
