Los Angeles Dodgers
Hyun-Jin Ryu filled in for the injured Alex Wood on Wednesday night and pitched well but not well enough for a win as the Dodgers lost 2-1 to St. Louis.
Ryu gave up three hits and a walk to match Carlos Martinez for six innings but Ross Stripling served up a solo home run to Dexter Fowler in the eighth inning that proved the game-winner.
Brandon McCarthy will look to continue throwing the ball well in Thursday’s matinee. He’s thrown back-to-back six inning outings after struggling a bit in the two starts before that. McCarthy went six and gave up one run against Milwaukee back on the 21st and shut the Cubs out over six five days later.
The Dodgers have confirmed he will make this afternoon’s start, despite some concern with his knee.
St. Louis Cardinals
Fowler’s home run came just in time to get Carlos Martinez his fourth win of the season. He was in control all night, striking out nine and giving up just four hits in eight innings.
The home run was Fowler’s seventh of the season. He has shown good power to do a little to offset his .228 batting average.
Adam Wainwright will look to pitch his team to a come-from-behind series split. He’s found something in his last three starts, going 20.1 innings, allowing 12 hits and just one run. He’s won all three of those starts and his ERA has dropped by more than two runs in the process.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction: McCarthy leads Dodgers to series victory.
I have LA as the -120 favorite with a total somewhere between 8.5 and 9.0. I noted a larger standard error in this one, though and those numbers are close enough to Vegas’ that I’m going to pass.
