The Cardinals ' three -run lead was in jeopardy in the seventh, and San Diego put Flaherty followed with four clean innings before he exited the game in the seventh. The Cardinals took advantage of Padres starter Jordan Lyles in the third when Martinez crushed a go-ahead two-run home run to center.

St. Louis Cardinals ace right-hander Jack Flaherty may not get to pitch in the 2020 postseason.

The 24-year-old is in the Cardinals' rotation for the wild-card series against the San Diego Padres, but not until Game 3, which won't be necessary if either team sweeps the first two games.

This new information contradicted manager Mike Shildt's statement on "High Heat" with Chris Russo earlier Monday, when he pegged Flaherty for Game 2, according to Mark Saxon of The Athletic.

Rookie left-hander Kwang Hyun Kim will start Game 1 on Wednesday after going 3-0 with a 1.62 ERA in 39 innings. Veteran Adam Wainwright, who went 5-3 with a 3.15 ERA and 1.05 WHIP over 10 starts, had a fine campaign as well.

Meanwhile, Flaherty struggled to build on a stellar 2019 season. He went 4-3 with a 4.91 ERA, and while his K/9 was a robust 10.93, he averaged more walks and home runs allowed than he did a year ago.

Flaherty came off a 2019 campaign where he finished fourth in NL Cy Young voting. He owned an 11-8 record, a 2.75 ERA, and 0.97 WHIP thanks to a ridiculous second half where he posted a 0.91 ERA over 15 starts.

SAN DIEGO -- The Cardinals flexed their muscles against the Padres by slugging five home runs en route to a 9-5 win on Friday night. For Gyorko, who had three hits, it was his eighth round-tripper in 12 games against San Diego in a rare rout for the Cardinals .

Now he'll apparently only take the mound in the wild-card round if the Cardinals and Padres split the first two games of the best-of-three series.
