10-unit Play Take #952 St. Louis Cardinals over Pittsburgh Pirates (8:05pm EST) The Pittsburgh Pirates had their chance to close out this series at home on Monday and failed. Now they face the extremely difficult task of heading back to St. Louis in a deciding Game 5 against Adam Wainwright. He's a tough customer and has come up big in huge games for the Cardinals in the past. This Pirates team has a lot of grit and plays well beyond their talent level, but this is too much to ask. They're not quite ready to take a game this big, but it will be a great learning experience. Rookie Gerrit Cole will get the ball for Pittsburgh in this game. He pitched great in Game 2 of the series against the Cardinals, but this game is different. His team is counting on him and it's an enormous amount of pressure for a 23-year old. It wouldn't be surprising at all if he crumbles under the pressure, while the Cardinals expect Wainwright to pitch well. St. Louis also owns the second best home record in baseball at 54-27 and their crowd is going to be full of energy tonight. All signs point to the Pirates here.
