The Cardinals know well enough not to underestimate Sánchez, who posted a 3.85 ERA across 30 regular season starts. The Nationals, meanwhile, defeated the Dodgers after back-to-back, game-tying home runs off Clayton Kershaw in the eighth inning, and a go-ahead from Howie Kendrick grand slam in the 10th.
If you went with Miles Mikolas in Game 1 in your Cardinals NLCS pitching rotation pool, you're a victor. The win marked the franchise's first postseason series victory since 1981. The right-hander started Game 1 of the NLDS and he threw a scoreless 10th inning in Game 4. He lost Game 2 of the NLDS when Mike Foltynewicz and the Braves blanked the Cards 3-0, then won the decisive Game 5 with six innings of four-hit, one-run ball.
Like the Nationals, the Cardinals also advanced to the NLCS on the strength of consecutive wins while facing elimination. Kolton Wong had a big game from the plate for the Saint Louis Cardinals as he went 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs.

But ultimately, the Cardinals offense would not be denied. While the Nationals are playing in their first League Championship Series ever, the Cardinals are playing their 10th NLCS in the last 20 seasons, and 14th overall.

However, St. Louis endured a middling run on home turf down the stretch, going 9-8 in 17 contests since the beginning of September. All three have also appeared in relief. Miles Mikolas had success in his 2 starts against the Washington Nationals during the 2019 season as is posting a 3.00 ERA. The 31-year-old made two appearances in the NLDS, turning in 5.0 innings of steady work in Game 1, allowing just three hits and one earned run in the Cardinals' 7-6 victory. He then pitched a flawless inning of relief in Game 4 and got the win when the Cardinals rallied to win in the bottom of the 10th. Anibal Sanchez struggled in his 1 start against the Saint Louis Cardinals during the 2019 season as he gave up 3 earned runs in 5 innings.
