The Cardinals will face the Nationals in the third game of their three game series, hoping to get their first sweep since facing the D-Backs in May. Jaime Garcia will be pitching for the Cards this afternoon, coming in nice and loose after 6 days rest. We hope for him to have a performance similar to last week’s when he threw seven shutout innings against the Blue Jays. Garcia will be facing  Nats’ pitcher Doug Fister, who has won five straight starts. The Cards will have to watch out for Fister’s curveball which is known to leave batters whiffing in the wind.
