(St. Louis, MO) -- The St. Louis Cardinals have been in 18 World Series, but only once have they taken a 2-0 lead.

That was the ill fated 1985 Series with the Royals.

Thursday night, St. Louis will send lefty and former Springfield Cardinal Jaime Garcia against the Texas Rangers.

"I'm going to go out there and try and go as deep as I can," Garcia said. "I'm just focusing on one single pitch at a time, until he takes me out of the game. It's three if it's five if it's six seven or nine, you know."
