Cardinals manager Mike Matheny withheld until today the official announcement of Adam Wainwright as his Game 1 starter Sunday against the Washington Nationals. However, club sources indicated that Wainwright and Jaime Garcia would start the afternoon games at Busch Stadium on Sunday and Monday, respectively.

The club is expected to name Chris Carpenter starter for Wednesday's Game 3 in Washington with Kyle Lohse scheduled to go in Game 4 on Thursday.

The Cardinals will also re-set their roster for the best-of-five series as they needed only 10 pitchers for Friday's wild-card playoff. It's likely they will pare several position players and one reliever from the mix.
