Cardinals take 1-0 NLCS lead

It took 13 innings and 13 total pitchers, but Game 1 of the NLCS is finally in the books. Carlos Beltran drove in all three of the Cardinals' runs with a two-run double in the third and the game-winning RBI single in the 13th. The new Mr. October got it done on defense, too. Beltran threw out Mark Ellis at the plate on a fly ball to shallow right field in the 10th to keep the score even at 2-2. Which team will win Game 2? Which will take the series?
