Lynn last pitched a week ago, losing to the Pirates in Game 2 of the NL Division Series. In that game, Lynn allowed five earned runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings. He faced the Dodgers once during the regular season, holding them scoreless and striking out nine in a victorious six-inning outing back in May.
Manager Mike Matheny did not indicate how long the Cardinals will wait before officially naming their starter for Game 4, which will be played Tuesday in Los Angeles (7 p.m. CT on TBS).
