- Brian Elliott will be back in goal tonight when the Blues take on the Sharks in San Jose in game 6 of the Western Conference final. The Blues must win to avoid elimination and bring the series back to St. Louis for game 7 on Friday night with a berth in the Stanley Cup final on the line. The game begins at 8 p.m. St. Louis time.
- The worst stretch of Michael Wacha’s career got even worse Tuesday night as the Cubs scored six runs in the first inning and went on to rout the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. Wacha allowed eight runs in four innings, the most he has ever allowed in his career. He has lost five games in a row and has given up six or more runs in each of his last three starts.
- Carlos Martinez will get the start in the final game of the series and the homestand at 12:45 today. Jake Arrieta, who is 8-0 on the season, will start for the Cubs. They have won the last 22 games Arrieta has started dating back to last season.
