Cardinals at Dodgers Game 4

Dodgers vs Cardinals The Cardinals have the series lead 2-1 going into game 4. After winning the first 2 games in the series the Cardinals were shut out in game 3 and that’s how we got to game 4.

The Cardinals will start pitcher Lance Lynn who lost his only start so far this postseason as he gave up 5 runs on 7 hits, walked 3, and struck out 6. Lynn also got a win in relief against the Dodgers in game 1 as he pitched 2 innings and gave up 1 hit, walked 1 and struck out 1. The Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said as of “right now” Ricky Nolasco will start game 4 but Mattingly said the same thing for game 4 of the NLDS but decided instead to start Clayton Kershaw on short rest. If Mattingly decided to do the same thing it would be Zack Greinke who wold start game 4. Nolasco has a record of 13-11 with a 3.70 ERA during the regular season.

 

Keys to the game

For the Cardinals:
1. If Nolasco pitches get to him early. In Nolasco’s last start he gave up 6 runs on 8 hits in 5 2/3 innings pitched. He also struck out 7 batters to.
2. The Cardinals are a hot team right now. They have won 7 of the last 10 games and are outscoring their opponents by 13 runs over that span.

3. Can Juan Uribe stay hot as they playoffs continue? Uribe has 8 hits in 29 at-bats with 2 home runs, 6 RBIs and 4 runs scored.

 

My Prediction 

The Dodgers get the lead in the 3rd inning 2-0. In the 5th inning the Cardinals cut the lead 2-1 and in the the 6th the Cardinals take the lead 3-2. But in the bottom of the 8th the Dodgers take the lead back 5-3. The Cardinals try to make a come back in the 9th as they score 1 run to close the gap 5-4. The Dodgers don’t give up any more runs and that is the final score.

Final score:

Dodgers: 5
Cardinals: 4
