Game 6 Of The NLCS

Dodgers vs Cardinals How They Got To Game 6

The Los Angeles Dodgers are traveling to St. Louis Missouri to face the Cardinals in game 6 of the NLCS. The Cardinals have the series lead so far 3 game to 2. The Cardinals won both games 1 and 2. Then the Dodgers won game 3. The Cardinals won game 4 to take a 3-1 series lead. On the brink of elimination Zack Greinke helped propel the Dodgers to a game 6.

The Dodgers will start Clayton Kershaw who has pitched in 3 games so far this postseason and has a record of 1-1 and has allowed 4 runs(1 earned) of 8 hits, 5 walks and has 23 strikeouts in 19 innings pitched. On the other side the Cardinals will start rookie Michael Wacha. Wacha has pitched in 2 postseason games so far, getting the wins in both. He has allowed 1 run on 6 hits, 3 walks and has struck out 17 in 14 innings pitched. Wacha has already out dueled Kershaw this postseason. Wacha allowed no runs on 5 hits and struck out 8 in 6 1/3 innings pitched while Kershaw allowed 1 run (not earned) on 2 hits and struck out 5 in 6 innings pitched.

How Dodgers can force game 7

1. The Dodgers need to get to Michael Wacha. Wacha dominated the entire Dodgers lineup for 6 2/3 innings in his previous start against the Dodgers. If L.A. wants a chance to win they have to get to Michael Wacha.
2. They need to score! If the Dodgers want to win they need to score 4 or more runs. When they score more then 4 runs this postseason the Dodgers are 4-0, but when they score less then 4 runs they are 1-4.
3. Kershaw needs to pitch like he did in his last start. He got the loss yes but he only gave up 1 run.

How Cardinals can end the series

1. Michael Wacha out duels Clayton Kershaw again. If he can do that the Cardinals should be going to the World Series.
2. Matt Holliday stays hot. Against the Dodgers this postseason Holliday has 5 hits in 20 at-bats with 1 home run, 3 RBIs and 2 runs scored.
3. Can Carlos Beltran break out? Beltran has 3 hits in 17 at-bats with 4 RBIs and 1 run scored against the Dodgers this postseason.

 

My Prediction 

It’s another pitching duel between Kershaw and Wacha allow 1 run each threw 6 innings. The bullpen for the Dodgers and Cardinals take over the game in the 7th and the Cardinals bullpen doesn’t allow a run but the Dodgers bullpen allows 1 run in the 8th off an RBI single from Matt Holiday. The Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal shuts the door as he strikes out 2 of the 3 batters he faces in the 9th inning.

Final Score

Cardinals: 2
Dodgers: 1
