The pitching matchup to get things going is superb. Tonight the Dodgers will throw Zack Greinke (8-3, 3.43 ERA) on the hill in the hopes of continuing Los Angeles' road winning streak to a near-unprecedented 15 games.
July was the best month of the season for Greinke, who went 3-1 with a 2.63 ERA in six starts. He struck out 34 and walked 14 in that span, and will be no easy task for the Cardinals hitters tonight.
He is going up against Adam Wainwright (13-6, 2.61 ERA), however, the Cardinals' ace and one of the filthiest pitchers in the sport these days. The good news for the Dodgers is that Wainwright has scuffled of late, giving up four or more runs in four of his past six outings.
The Dodgers will be battling an important injury heading into this series, and it's not the one that has center fielder Matt Kemp on the disabled list. Yesterday shortstop Hanley Ramirez tweaked his shoulder making a grab in foul territory that had him tumble into the seats.
Ramirez discussed his injury after yesterday's game while wearing a sling. "I just jumped and landed on it. I'm not feeling the back of my shoulder. It's really sore and we'll see how it feels tomorrow."
Ramirez's injury came one day after rookie fireball Yasiel Puig left a game with an injury, but manager Don Mattingly is hoping to have Puig back in the order for tonight's matchup. His return becomes even more important if Ramirez can't go.
