NEW YORK (AP) - Game Two of the National League Championship Series is scheduled for tonight at Shea Stadium, where the Mets won last night's opener 2-to-0.
St. Louis skipper Tony La Russa has switched gears and has decided to go with his ace in an attempt to even the series. He'll hand the ball to 15-game winner Chris Carpenter. The 2005 Cy Young Award winner is 4-and-0 with a two-point-10 earned run average in five career postseason starts.
New York counters with rookie John Maine.
