Nathan Eovaldi (1-1, 2.12) vs. Chris Carpenter (8-8, 3.68).
The last-place Dodgers limp into St. Louis having lost five of their last seven. The Cards, a distant second place in the NL Central and third in the wild card, need to make up ground, and fast. They're sending a resurgent Carpenter against the Dodgers' callow Eovaldi. Oh, and the Dodgers have a franchise winning percentage of .444 in St. Louis. But hey, at least today's game is on TV!
Sax's note: SoSG Alex Cora and I made it to St. Louis and are at the game today. We'll be reporting live from St. Louis!
