Josh Beckett (6-13, 5.05) vs. Lance Lynn (14-7, 4.04).
The Dodgers are slumping! The Cardinals are slumping! Yet, due to Rule 1.03 of the Official Rules of Major League baseball:
The winner of the game shall be that team which shall have scored, in accordance with these rules, the greater number of runs at the conclusion of a regulation game.
Yes, someone has to win! And don't forget about the resurgent Brewers and Phillies, who with the Dodgers and Cards are within three games of that sad, sad final wild card spot. Let's call it the mini card.
