The series returns to St. Louis for the six game and the Cardinals have a narrow advantage over the LA Dodgers, ready to close the deal. The visitors need some sort of a miracle to win consecutive games at Busch Stadium, but they plan on taking it one game at a time while staying positive.
Bet: St Louis
Odds: Winner Sports 2.10
The Dodgers don’t have too many reasons for optimism and the fact that they failed to win all games in Los Angeles hurts their chances of winning the NLCS. Clayton Kershaw is taking the mound tonight and there is no better pitcher that the visitors can send in for a decisive game. He pitched in the 2nd game of the series and allowed a single run in six innings, but his team lost and Clayton was tagged with a defeat.
Michael Wacha will oppose him tonight just like he did one week ago and the young starting pitcher hopes for a similar outcome at Busch Stadium. The last time he faced Clayton he kept his team in the game and even granted them a narrow advantage over the Dodgers, an advantage that St Louis capitalized on. The Cardinals are finally showing some signs of offensive prowess and with four runs scored in each of the last two games, they should give Wacha the support he needs to send them to the World Series.
One year ago, St. Louis had a 3-1 lead but lost the series and they have no intention of replicating that awful performance. The Dodgers already took one game, but tonight the Cardinals should wrap the series up and wait for Boston and Detroit to join them in the most important seven games of the season. The odds for St. Louis to win tonight are 2.10 with Winner Sports.
