The St. Louis Cardinals are playing with their backs against the wall.
But then again they've done that for about a month now.
So they're over Tuesday night's loss and are trying to stay the resilient club they've been all year.
"For the most part everyone's loose on the team and like I said before we've been playing playoff games for a month now so there's no reason to go in today uptight or anything and I think that Jax does have a good personality for this type of game and I think he's going to be good," said Cards outfielder Allen Craig.
"Tonight's a little bit of a different scenario in that there is no tomorrow, if you don't win so the pressure is at its highest point, and hopefully this club will respond but I have a lot of faith it will because it has all year," said Cards General Manager John Mozeliak.
"You know we've given ourselves a chance, yesterday was kind of tough because we didn't capitalize on a couple of opportunities, but we're still alive so we'll just try and win today and get it back to Philadelphia," said Cards outfielder Lance Berkman.
