Wainwright, Lynn available for Game 7 relief

SAN FRANCISCO -- There may be a game for the Cardinals in two days, but they'll deal with that when the time comes. For now, they're playing a Game 7, and that means everyone who might conceivably be available to pitch, is available to pitch.

Specifically, starters Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn, who pitched Games 4 and 5 of the National League Championship Series, respectively, were considered available out of the bullpen for the final game of the NLCS.

"The two of them would definitely be ready to go," said manager Mike Matheny. "It's all hands on deck right now."

It's likely that one of those two would start Game 1 of the World Series if the Cardinals were to advance.
