Langosch: Cardinals bust out, rely on ‘pen to ink Game 1 win

The NLCS is happening.

A once-seemingly safe six-run St. Louis lead had already shrunk to two, and Lance Lynn was giving little indication that he was about to stop a surging San Francisco offense. And so, as Lynn faced pinch-hitter Aubrey Huff—a batter he’d eventually walk—Kelly rushed through his warmup sequence.

Kelly had time for about 10 fastballs and another five offspeed offerings before he was jogging again, this time to the AT&T Park mound. Wondering himself if he had had ample time to prepare, Kelly—with an assist from a diving Daniel Descalso—closed the inning, setting off a stellar bullpen stand that ensured the Cardinals would exit Sunday with a 6-4 win to open the National League Championship Series.
