AccuScore Game Preview: Cardinals AT Dodgers [Game 4, NLCS]
The Los Angeles Dodgers hope to even the series at two games apiece today as they get set to once again host the St. Louis Cardinals at Dodgers Stadium. As of now, Ricky Nolasco is set to take the mound. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly mentioned that had the Dodgers lost Game 3, the team would have most likely started Zack Greinke on three days rest in tonight’s game.
With that said, it seems that going with Nolasco is the perfect choice for today’s game. Even if L.A. loses, they still have Kershaw and Greinke in games 5 and 6.
The Dodgers acquired Nolasco prior to the 2013 trading deadline; he has had no trouble with the Cardinals at all this season posting a 0.75 ERA in twelve innings of work. Nolasco has also been solid at home with a 2.48 ERA in seven games.
