The Padres found some late life at the end of game two and came back to force a game three against St. Louis on Friday.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals jumped out to an early lead once again. St. Louis was up 4-0 after the second inning and looked like they were going to win the series until the sixth inning when Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado hit back to back home runs to tie the game.
Paul Goldschmidt continues to be the Cardinal’s best hitter in the postseason. Goldschmidt had two more hits on the night including a home run and has now moved his postseason batting average to .450 this season.
Mike Schildt will have ace Jack Flaherty out there to start game three of the series with the Padres. Flaherty was 4-3 with a 4.91 ERA in nine games started this season.
San Diego Padres
Slam Diego was back in action on Thursday with a bundle of home runs to help lead them to victory and force a game three against St. Louis. Fernando Tatis Jr. and Will Meyers combined for four home runs and nine RBI’s in the win. It all comes down to the game on Friday with the winner heading to the NLDS to face Atlanta Braves.
Fernando Tatis has been the spark plug for this Padres team all season long and it was no different on Thursday. Tatis went 3 for 5 with two home runs and five RBI’s. Tommy Pham also had himself a nice game going 4 for 5 and getting his postseason average to .667.
Jayce Tingler has yet to announce who will be starting for the Friars on Friday. So lookout for the announcement prior to the game. Tingler has a couple of options to go to including Garrett Richards, Tim Hill, and Matt Strahm.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
I think the Padres are riding high after their win last night. Tatis and Machado have been the fire starters for this Friars offense all season and last night was exactly what the doctor ordered. I like them to go out and put a bunch of runs on the board and send the Cardinals packing. The only thing that can prevent the Padres from advancing is if the pitching staff can’t come through. I’m confident though laying my money on the Padres with the momentum shifted in their direction.
