Lance Lynn will start Game 4 for the Cardinals

No surprise, but manager Mike Matheny told reporters this afternoon that Lance Lynn will start Game 4 for the Cardinals.

Lynn also started Game 4 of the NLCS versus the Dodgers, throwing 5.1 innings and allowing two runs in a 4-2 victory matched up against Ricky Nolasco.

There had been some thought to bringing back Adam Wainwright on short rest to start Game 4, but instead he’ll be lined up for Game 5 followed by Michael Wacha in Game 6 and Joe Kelly (and basically everyone else on the pitching staff) in a potential Game 7.
