Game 3 of NLCS shaping up to be battle of aces

Posted:

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- On the day he pitches, Chris Carpenter can be an ornery cuss. He prowls the mound, barks at hitters, and on at least one occasion has been known to invite a basepath collision.

Though just an 11-game winner for the St. Louis Cardinals, the 36-year-old right-hander has been in dominating mode since midseason. Apparently in the Milwaukee Brewers' heads, too, heading into a matchup of aces in Game 3 of the NL championship series on Wednesday night against 17-game winner Yovani Gallardo.
