Kelly named Game 3 starter for Cardinals

Joe Kelly is going to start Game 3 of the NL division series for

the St. Louis Cardinals.

Manager Mike Matheny made the announcement Thursday prior to the

opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Kelly appeared to be the

likeliest choice given rookies Shelby Miller and Michael Wacha were

set to be available out of the bullpen in Game 1.

Kelly was 10-5 with a 2.69 ERA and was perhaps the strongest

link in the rotation for about a month-and-a-half.
