Nobody saw this coming. I mean nobody.

The Los Angeles Dodgers went with their two aces to open the NLCS and despite the best efforts of Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, came away with zero wins at Busch Stadium.

In Game 1 it was seven scoreless innings by the Cardinals bullpen that led to their 3-2 victory in the 13th inning.

On Saturday, it was rookie right-hander Michael Wacha that stayed pitch-for-pitch with Kershaw in a Cardinals 1-0 nail biter. St. Louis now heads to La-La land leading 2-0 in the best-of-seven NLCS with their own ace, Adam Wainwright, the starter for Game 3.
