    "I'm just trying not to think too much about it," Wacha said Wednesday, before the Cardinals' loss. A game that Michael Wacha isn't even pitching. Wacha's last name is pronounced the same. In any case, these were the first runs Wacha had given up in 19 innings, since his victory in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Pirates. "I'm just trying not to think too much about it, just trying to approach every game the same, trying not to get too caught up in the moment," said Wacha, who became the youngest NLCS MVP since 21-year-old Steve Avery with Atlanta in 1991. Wacha is the 15th pitcher to have at least four wins as a starter in one postseason, joining Burt Hooton , Dave Stewart , Jack Morris , Orel Hershiser , John Smoltz , David Wells , Randy Johnson , Curt Schilling , Josh Beckett , Cole Hamels , Cliff Lee , Andy Pettitte , Tim Lincecum and Chris Carpenter . He won his fourth straight postseason start last night, beating the Boston Red Sox 4-2 in Game 2 of the World Series at Fenway Park, thanks to six stout innings and a resourceful three-run rally his teammates staged in the seventh. Move over Fernando and Livan.
