After a four year absence, the playoffs are back at Busch Stadium in St. Louis as the Cardinals take on the Atlanta Braves Sunday afternoon in Game Three of the National League Division Series.

Temperatures are in the mid 60’s with cloudy skies and the tarp on the field light rain falling downtown.

After a 7-6 win in Atlanta to open the series, St. Louis was shutout by Braves 3-0 in Game Two.
