According to Jim Hayes, David Freese, who has been nursing a sore right calf, was available to pinch-hit on Saturday’s game and is planning to start Sunday’s rubber game against the Cubs.

In the top of the ninth inning on Saturday’s game, Mike Matheny opted to pinch-hit Allen Craig to try and get the tying run home.

In 91 games this season, Freese is hitting .314 with 14 HRs and 58 RBIs.
