The Los Angeles Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals face off on Saturday in LA for game three of their series.
The Los Angeles Dodgers weren’t able to get their base runners across the plate on Friday as they fell to the Cardinals. Dee Gordon had three hits and Yasiel Puig, and Adrian Gonzalez each had hits as the Dodgers scored just one run on eight hits. Starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed nine hits and three runs while striking out seven over 7.0 innings tot take the loss and fall to 9-4 for the season. For Saturday’s game the Dodgers start Zack Greinke who has lost here of his last four decisions. For the season Greinke has allowed 97hits and 31 earned runs while striking out 101 over 96.2 innings for a 9-4 record and a 2.89 ERA.

The St. Louis Cardinals took advantage of the hits and chances they had on Friday to beat the Dodgers. Yadier Molina hit a home run and Matt Holliday and Matt Adams were among those getting hits as the Cardinals scored three runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Carlos Martinez allowed six hits and a run while striking out four over 4.1 innings for a no decision as Seth Maness got the win to go to 3-2 for the season and Trevor Rosenthal earned his 24th save. For Saturday’s game the Cardinals start Lance Lynn who has won two of his last three starts. For the season Lynn has allowed 88 hits and 32 earned runs while striking out 89 over 99.1 innings for a 8-5 record and a 2.90 ERA.
Los Angeles is 4-0 followjng a loss, 8-4 in their last 12 games, and 1-4 in Greinke’s last five starts. St. Louis is 5-1 as an underdog, 6-2 in their last eight games, and 7-3 in Lynn’s last 10 road starts.
I am looking for Greinke to come up real big in this one as his role for the Dodgers is as a big game pitcher and he gets his chance to prove it here though I can't say there is any value at all in this line.
