October 12, 2011: Cardinals’ bullpen stars in NLCS Game 3 win


Early in the 2011 season, a five-inning start from Chris Carpenter wouldn’t have been enough for the Cardinals and their beleaguered bullpen. By October, however, the Cardinals’ once-shaky bullpen had become key to their success, as evidenced by the four innings of scoreless relief provided by Fernando Salas, Lance Lynn, Marc Rzepczynski, and Jason Motte in a 4-3 NLCS Game 3 victory.
