The 'Starting pitchers for every MLB Wild Card game' quiz

Despite late-season pushes by both the Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays, the 2021 MLB Wild Card games are now set. On Tuesday, it's the American League's turn, with the Boston Red Sox hosting the hated division-rival New York Yankees. Each team will trot out an All-Star starter, with the Sox giving the nod to Nathan Eovaldi while Gerrit Cole will take the ball for New York. On Wednesday, over in the Senior Circuit, the 106-win Los Angeles Dodgers will face the St. Louis Cardinals, which rode a late 17-game winning streak into the postseason. Max Scherzer will start for L.A. while the seemingly ageless Adam Wainwright will start for St. Louis. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. MLB instituted a Wild Card game in each league beginning in 2012. Since then, 32 pitchers have taken the mound for their teams in said games. So with that in mind, how many of those 32 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
