Cardinals first baseman, Matt Adams led the team in 2014 with a .288 average. He had just 3 hits in the Divisional Series but his 3rd hit was a 3 run homer off Clayton Kershaw. That proved to be the final nail in the Dodgers' coffin.
Adam Wainright led the Cards with a 2.38 ERA in the regular season. In game one of the Divisional Series Wainwright got crushed. He gave up 6 runs on 11 hits. He left the game after pitching just 4 and 1/3 innings with the Dodgers ahead 6-1. The Cards would come back to win 10-9 in a 26-hit slugfest.
