Kyle Lohse, who gained his first postseason win in his 10th postseason game in the wild-card playoff last week, will try to pitch the Cardinals into their seventh National League Championship Series in the last 13 seasons on Thursday when he starts Game 4 of the National League Division Series. "I've learned how to handle that adrenaline, the ability to block out all of the other stuff," said Lohse. "Just go out there and do the things that I know about." The Cardinals' train is gathering some steam. After losing Game 1 in the Division Series to Washington on a bloop single, they have outscored the Nationals 20-4 over the last two games. Former Cardinals infielder/outfielder Mark DeRosa, a Nationals player who is not on the roster for this series, said of the Cardinals, "They're just one of those teams that are not going to beat themselves. "It doesn't matter who's out there. When they put that uniform on, it really does remind of me of when I first came up with the (Atlanta) Braves, when they would button their jerseys and find a way to win. They're not going to let the moment be too big for them." Of no small significance is that the fact that for the second consecutive game, seven Cardinals regulars had at least one hit. Rookie shortstop Pete Kozma, much criticized earlier in the postseason, had just one hit Wednesday, but it was a three-run homer in the second inning. Washington starter Edwin Jackson said he was trying to get a pitch away from Kozma but that it had drifted over the middle of the plate where, in Jackson's words, Kozma could "turn and burn."
