This National League matchup includes two of the most consistently good teams that league has.
The Cardinals are looking to catch a hot streak to get back to their dominant ways.
The Dodgers look to keep battling with the veteran play they have.
St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals bats have been fairly respectable throughout the beginning of this baseball season. They are led in average by the shortstop Aledmys Diaz. Diaz is hitting .383 with 18 extra base hits and 18 runs batted in on the year.
The third baseman Matt Carpenter is leading the team in home runs and RBIs. Carpenter is hitting .266 with 7 home runs and 25 runs batted in.
Yadier Molina has been playing above his normal level of play, he is hitting .336 with 11 doubles on the year.
They look to tee off on the lefty Kazmir.
The Cards send out Michael Wacha against the Dodgers. Wacha is currently 2-3 with a 3.12 E.R.A and 38 strikeouts on the year. He is near the top of the Cards rotation, but has not pitched up to par this year.
He was last in action in a loss against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He threw in 6 innings, giving up 6 hits, 4 earned runs and also 1 dinger.
Wacha walked two batters and sent 6 back with strikeouts. He looks to get things back to normal on Saturday.
The Los Angeles are led by some veterans in the hitting statistics this season. The leader in batting average and on base percentage is Chase Utley. Utley is hitting .298 on the year and carries an on base percentage of .392 with 14 walks.
Next up for the Dodgers is Adrian Gonzalez, seems like he leads the team in categories every year.
Gonzalez leads in hits with 37 and also runs batted in standing at 18. The one time sensation, Yasiel Puig, has dipped in production so far this season.
Piug is hitting .230 with 3 long balls and 12 runs batted in. Puig and the Dodgers look to heighten their production offensively.
The Dodgers have the veteran Scott Kazmir on the bump on Saturday. Kazmir is currently struggling this year, with a 2-3 record and a 5.54 E.R.A and 36 strikeouts. Kazmir last pitched at home against the New York Mets in a loss.
He had 5.2 innings of work, giving up 3 earned runs while scattering 6 hits.
He walked 4 batters and also gave up two home runs. Kazmir needs to get back on track this season, in order for his production to help this Dodgers team in the playoffs.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. L.A. Dodgers MLB Prediction:
This has the makings to become a good matchup for the season, both teams have similar teams. The lineup isn’t as strong as it once was, and they both have good aces with an okay end of the staff.
I am going to take the Dodgers in this one at home on Saturday. I do not think that Wacha has the stuff this year to be in the top of a pitching rotation.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Dodgers ML
I also think that Kazmir will find his own on the bump Saturday, not too many bats in that lineup is very scary consistently- he should be able to deal.
