The fifth spot in the Cardinals rotation has fallen apart late in the season and that's a bit troublesome since, with no more off-days, they'll need another start in that spot on Saturday, perhaps with the wild-card on the line. Monday night was just a bit rough for Cardinal pitching. Jaime Garcia, Michael Wacha and Luke Weaver, the three primary candidates to pitch Saturday, combined to allow 17 hits, four of them home runs, and 14 runs total. The Cardinals could elect to make Saturday a bullpen game since they have so many extra arms with an expanded roster.
