After their monster win against the Cardinals in Game 5, the Dodgers are heading back to the Busch Stadium in St. Louis for another must-win ballgame. Ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw will take the mount. If that’s not enough, the Dodgers also have history on their side.
The Cardinals have blown a 3-1 lead in a postseason series four times and the last time that happened was in 2012 when they played against the San Francisco Giants. The Cards will send in rookie right-hander Michael Wacha, who bested Kershaw in Game 2.
A Dodgers win will set the stage for a decisive Game 7 tomorrow.
