Cardinals turn to Michael Wacha for NLCS Game 6 start against Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers

ST. LOUIS – For four straight starts, Michael Wacha has been all but untouchable and appeared totally oblivious to the stakes.

The St. Louis Cardinals need one more just like that from the pressure-proof rookie to get to the World Series for the second time in three years.

Wacha outpitched ace Clayton Kershaw in Game 1 and the Cardinals won 1-0. They’re matched again in Game 6 tonight, the precocious right-hander and the lefty who’d be at the top of anyone’s list to work a must-win.

The Dodgers brought the series back to St. Louis by muscling up with four homers in a Game 5 victory Wednesday.
