New, comments
Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The NLDS between the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs is knotted at one. Effectively, the NLDS is now a three-game series in which the Cubs have the home-field advantage with Games 3 and 4 at Wrigley Field. In the pivotal Game 3, the Cardinals will send 2013 postseason hero Michael Wacha to the mound against 2015 Cy Young candidate Jake Arrieta. How to the two righties stack up against one another?
