Okay here's a preview of todays game 3. Pitching matchup STL: LHP Mark Mulder (5-2, 3.74 ERA) After walking a total of two batters in his first four starts, Mulder has issued 18 free passes in his last six. He's still keeping the ball on the ground, but the left-hander's command needs to be sharper. When he throws strikes, he's tough to handle. He gets quick outs and can eat innings. SD: RHP Jake Peavy (3-5, 3.64 ERA) Peavy is starting to wonder what he has to do to earn a win. He was magnificent against the Braves, with 16 strikeouts -- the most in the Majors this season -- and he lost anyway, beaten essentially by one fastball Ryan Langerhans put in the first row of the left-field bleachers. Peavy has 66 strikeouts and 15 walks in 64 1/3 innings and has pitched well enough to have seven wins with seven quality starts. He was throwing 94 mph on his 100th pitch. Player to watch Facing Peavy isn't much fun -- or at least, it's not much fun for ordinary ballplayers. For Albert Pujols, it hasn't been that big a deal. Including last season's playoff series, Pujols is 6-for-11 with a double, a home run and three walks.
