Cardinals name Lynn Game 2 starter

The SportsXchange

Right-hander Lance Lynn, who won his final two starts of the regular season, has been named the St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher for Game 2 of the National League Division Series.

Adam Wainwright (19-9, 2.94 ERA) will start Game 1 on Thursday against the winner of Tuesday's wild-card game between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh.

Lynn, who snapped a skid in which he was 0-5 with a 5.44 ERA over eight outings, pitched six scoreless innings as the Cardinals clinched the NL Central title on Friday night. He was chosen for Game 2 by manager Mike Matheny over Shelby Miller (15-9, 3.06), Joe Kelly (10-5, 2.69) and Michael Wacha (4-1, 2.78).
