The Cards say Joe Kelly will be the game one starter of the NLCS Friday night. And Hillcrest has a big win over Parkview.
ST. LOUIS, Mo--Friday night the Cards and Dodgers will open up the best of seven National League Championship Series.
This is the first time since 1985 that they've met in the NLCS.
The Cards annouced that Joe Kelly will be the game one starter with Michael Wacha pitching in game two.
The Dodgers will have an extra couple of days rest since they wrapped up their series with the Braves on Monday night.

Thursday Matheny talked about starting Kelly.  "Joe's earned this.  He started off this season and I've said this many times.  He showed us so much and earned our respect coming out of spring training in that fight for the fifth spot.  He continued to come in here regardless of what his role was and tried to figure out how to make our team win.  Those sort of things pay off."

"Being a little kid, it's something you look forward to, just getting to the playoffs," Kelly says. "To be named game one starter, I got chills and goose bumps."
Major League Baseball and TBS have released their game times.
Game One is Friday night at 7:37 p.m. central time.
Game Two at 3:07 Saturday afternoon.
Games Three, Four and Five will be in LA, three and four at 7 p.m.

The Springfield Public Schools continue to work their way through Thursday night football because of Homecoming activities.
Last night the tenth ranked 4-and-2 Hillcrest Hornets were looking to bounce back from last week's loss to Kickapoo.
The 3-and-3 Vikings have won three of their last four. 
But Hillcrest would open the scoring when Juwan Johnson takes the handoff up the middle, seven yards for a touchdown, it's 7-0, Hornets.
Parkview ties it up, Anthony Riley gets the ball, heads to the right side, then bounces off a tackler to the left side, and goes with the flow, finds the far sideline and takes it to the house, 69 yards for a touchdown, 7-7.
It was 14-7 Hillcrest when the Vikings tie it up again, Anthony Gilliland airs it out to Connor Ratcliff, a 23 yard touchdown it's 14-14.
But right before the half, Hillcrest moves back in front, the two yard quarterback keep from Matt Rush, it's 21-14.
And Hillcrest wins 55-24.
