Cardinals' Michael Wacha named NLCS MVP
The Cards' 22-year-old rookie starting pitcher towered over all in the 2013 NLCS against the Dodgers.

The Cardinals, of course, prevailed over the Dodgers in six games, and Wacha, who started Games 2 and 6, didn't allow a single run in 13 2/3 innings pitched in the series. Over those 13 2/3 innings, he struck out 13 and walked just two. Wacha becomes the sixth Cardinal to win the award.
The 22-year-old right-hander pitched to a 2.78 ERA in the regular season and had been even better than that after being restored to the rotation in early September.
