The Dodgers are in a situation where; it’s either beat Adam Wainwright or start the act of winterizing the clubhouse for the year. And they’ve done this to themselves by scoring one run in 22 innings so far in NLCS play.
It’s one of those games that looks like the Cardinals are going to win without any trouble. Hanley Ramirez has a broken rib. The Dodgers are starting Hyun-Jin Ryu, who hasn’t been effective for an extended period of time. They’re going against the giant of all big-game aces in the National League, Adam Wainwright.
And I’m telling you that as a baseball fan, if I know anything about this game at all; I know the Dodgers have the gusto and the moxy to win this game against all odds and make this a series. They’ll beat Wainwright tonight and face a more manageable task in the Cardinals game four starter (Lance Lynn).
There’s some magic this season out in Los Angeles at Chavez Ravine, and the ghosts of the past will be lurking. Don’t be surprised to see something wild late in the game tonight.
