Okay here's my preview of today's game 1. Pitching matchup STL: RHP Anthony Reyes (1-2, 2.16 ERA) Reyes delivered another strong performance Tuesday night against the Indians, allowing two runs in five innings. He had some control problems, walking four hitters and throwing 93 pitches, but still showed impressive stuff. The rookie worked his fastball low in the zone and was very effective with his changeup, which tends to be his best strikeout pitch. ATL: RHP John Smoltz (4-5, 3.73 ERA) Smoltz provided his finest start in nearly a month on Wednesday, limiting the Yankees to one earned run in seven innings. The bullpen, which has blown six save opportunities, prevented him from notching his first win in seven starts. He had allowed six homers in his previous four starts, matching the total he surrendered in April and May combined. Player to watch Albert Pujols hasn't had a lot of trouble with Smoltz. The MVP is 5-for-12 against the Atlanta right-hander with a pair of home runs.
