The MLB is back today as the Los Angeles Dodgers will face the St Louis Cardinals at the Busch Stadium in St Louis, Missouri in what will be the first game of a four-game series. The Dodgers will give the nod to Clayton Kershaw and the Cardinals will counter will Austin Gomber.
Los Angeles Dodgers Form
The Dodgers are still in the race for the title in the National League West. They are heading into this series on the back of two wins from the three-game series against the Reds. It will be interesting to see how they will start this series as they need to keep winning in order to win their division. The Dodgers have averaged 5.16 runs per game and have allowed 3.91 runs per game on the road for the year.
Clayton Kershaw record against the Cardinals stands at 6-5 with a 2.99 ERA in 16 starts, including 2-3 with a 3.68 ERA in seven starts here at Busch Stadium.
On the offensive side of the game, the Dodgers have been good as they are placed on the 10th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.70 runs per game, while also being on the 18th spot in hitting at .244 and 2nd place in homers with a total of 203 so far this season. On the mound, they have been very good as they are placed on the 2nd spot in the league in with an ERA of 3.47, while also being 2nd in WHIP at 1.17 and on the 3rd place in K’s with 1391.
St Louis Cardinals Form
The Cardinals are also in the race to win their division. However, they head into this after a hard game which resulted in a loss against the resurgent Pirates team. The Cardinals were solid this season and there is more to come from them in the postseason. The Cardinals have averaged 4.34 runs per game and have allowed 4.06 runs per game here at home for the year.
The Cardinals have been solid on the offence this season as they are placed on the 12th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.64 runs per game, while also being on the 14th place in hitting at .250 and 6th place in homers with 189. On the mound, they have good as they are placed on the 7th spot in the league in ERA at 3.72. The Cardinals are also on the 18th place in WHIP at 1.32 and 20th spot in K’s with 1162.
The Cardinals had a solid season and I expect even more from them next season. However, I will go for the Dodgers in this one as they have shown that they are in a better form. I expect a solid Dodgers win.
