Mike Matheny on what it meant to have Yadier Molina back on the field for the first time in nearly three weeks: "He was the catalyst...the way he commanded the attention of the team and how he and John [Lackey] worked together. That's something that a catcher can do, and when he's healthy, when he's right, I think he does it as well as anybody in the game."

Jayson Stark Senior Writer, 

Really interesting comments from Mike Matheny on why he had Adam Wainwright warming up in the 9th last night. "That had a couple points to it. One of those points is getting Adam up and hot and his heart beatin', and I think part of it's also telling him what we think of him and how we may use him."

Jayson Stark Senior Writer, 

Brandon Moss is a mild surprise at 1B for the Cardinals today. Moss has never faced Kyle Hendricks. But he did reach base 6 times in 9 trips last weekend in Atlanta. Mike Matheny: "We need to keep him hot. We think he can be a difference maker"

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Minimal changes to the Cardinals lineup compared to game one: Facing RHP Kyle Hendricks, lefty Brandon Moss gets the nod at 1B, pushing rookie Stephen Piscotty to RF, and Randal Grichuk to the pine. Yadier Molina is back behind the dish, bum thumb and all.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Adam Wainwright on how the Cardinals' game one win vs. the Cubs affects the rest of the NLDS: "Well, I think the statistics speak for themselves in that regard...for us to get out to a 1-game lead was huge." For the record, the Cards have never lost an NLDS after winning the opener (8-0).
