St. LOUIS - The National League Championship Series shifts to St. Louis for Game 3 on Wednesday.
The Cardinals host the San Francisco Giants with the series even at a game apiece. In a matchup of 16-game winners, Kyle Lohse will pitch for the Cardinals against Matt Cain.
San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy tells The Associated Press there's a ``good chance'' second baseman Marco Scutaro will play in Game 3.
Scutaro strained his left hip when the Cardinals' Matt Holliday crashed into him with a hard slide in Game 2 at AT&T Park. The second baseman went down in the first inning of the Giants' 7-1 win, then hit a two-run single in the fourth before coming out of the game after the fifth inning.
Bochy called it ``an illegal slide.''
You can listen live for the 3:05 p.m. first pitch on WJBC 1230 AM and 93.7 FM.
