The Los Angeles Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals face off on Saturday at Dodger Stadium for game three of their MLB series.
The Los Angeles Dodgers continued to be mystified by the Cardinals as they lost to them on once again on Friday. Adrian Gonzalez, Yasmani Grandal, and Scott Schebler each had hits as the Dodgers scored one run on four hits. Starting pitcher Brett Anderson allowed four hits and two runs while striking out five over 7.2 innings to take the loss and fall to 2-4 for the season. For Saturday’s game the Dodgers start Clayton Kershaw who has allowed 65 hits and 30 earned runs while striking out 90 over 72.1 innings for a 4-3 record and a 3.73 ERA.

The St. Louis Cardinals didn’t get a lot of offense but they got just enough to get the win on Friday. Kolten Wong had two hits and Jhonny Peralta and Yadier Molina each had hits as the Cardinals scored two runs on five hits. Starting pitcher Carlos Martinez allowed three hits and a run while striking out 11 over 7.0 innings to get the win and raise his record to 6-2 for the season and Trevor Rosenthal earned his 18th save. For Saturday’s game the Cardinals start Jaime Garcia who has allowed 16 hits and six runs while striking out 12 over 20 innings for a 1-2 record and a 2.70 ERA.
Los Angeles is 36-16 in their last 52 home games, 1-5 in their last six games, and 45-20 in Kershaw’s last 65 home starts. St. Louis is 8-2 following a win, 43-16 in game three of a series, and 2-5 in Garcia’s last seven road starts against a team with a winning record. St. Louis is 7-1 in their last eight meetings with Los Angeles.
Kershaw has shook off a slow start and is pitching well but I still like the Cardinals with the big odds here.
