Lyou Dodgers they will have to fight with some ignited St. Louis Cardinals in the clash of jokers of the National Wednesday night. It will offer another attractive starting matchup: Max Scherzer vs. Adam Wainwright.
On Sunday, Buster Posey propelled the San Francisco Giants to the National League West title, condemning the Dodgers – with their 106 victories – to a dangerous wild-card game. San Francisco won the pennant by beating San Diego 11-4. They needed to win all those games to finish ahead of the defending World Series champion Dodgers.
So the defending champions will risk their lives nine innings against a team that went on to win 17 consecutive games down the stretch to make the playoffs and that features veteran Wainwright, who knows what it’s like to play in the postseason.
Dodgers and Cardinals met seven times in the regular season, with balance 4-3 for the Los Angeles ninth, he won two of the three games played at Dodger Stadium.
The Giants will receive the winner of the wild card duel at Oracle Park.
