Jon Lester vs. Adam Wainwright

Jared Wickerham

I decided I should probably stop putting game twice in the title, though it took me four times to realize it. This is an obviously massive game, the biggest of the series. Adam Wainwright's curve is one of the most beautiful pitches in baseball. This will probably go a lot better for him than Game 1.
