The Dodgers ran through 15 straight road wins before getting beaten on Tuesday night, but it isn’t like the world is coming to an end at this point. LA is still the hottest team in baseball, and in all likelihood, it is probably the best team in baseball as well. RHP Ricky Nolasco only has a 7-9 record for the year including his time with the Miami Marlins, but over the course of the last few starts, he has been hot. In his last five starts, his five with the Dodgers, the righty is 2-1 with a 3.54 ERA. Nolasco is going against RHP Shelby Miller, who is 11-7 with a 2.89 ERA on the campaign. The truth of the matter is that both of these pitchers are relatively comparable with one another, perhaps giving a slight edge to St. Louis. The Cardinals though, really aren’t playing all that well at this point. Sure, they have three games since the start of the month in which they have scored at least 13 runs, but they are going against a team that is 32-8 in its last 40 games. Manager Don Mattingly has his team playing the best baseball in the majors at this point, and we think that it is a great steal to get this team as such a big underdog on Wednesday night.
