In today’s 10 a.m. video, columnist Ben Hochman discusses an eye-catching stat about, of all people, the struggling shortstop Paul DeJong. Plus, a happy birthday shoutout Will Butler of Arcade Fire! And, as always, Hochman picks a random St. Louis Cards card from the hat. Ten Hochman is presented by Window Nation!

Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol has named left-hander Jose Quintana Friday's Game 1 starter for the wild card series against the Philadelphia Phillies. It will be his first postseason start since the 2017 NLCS with the Chicago Cubs. 

One of the major pieces acquired at this year's trade deadline, Quintana, 33, has been dominant for the Cardinals over 12 starts. He's pitched to a 2.01 ERA, and the club has won nine of those games. 

Quintana made one start against the Phillies this season, doing so in his final start as a Pittsburgh Pirate on July 29. He went 5⅔ innings and allowed just four hits and zero earned runs. 

Ben Frederickson and Daniel Guerrero preview the best-of-three series, from slumping Paul Goldschmidt to the Phillies' shaky defense.

Marmol also named Miles Mikolas as the Game 2 starter while leaving open who would start a potential Game 3.
