The St. Louis Cardinals will have their work cut out for them on Saturday night. The task in front of the Cards is a tall one: face the L.A. Dodgers, the team with the best record in baseball, in their home park with reigning Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw on the mound. The Cardinals, who have lost six of their last eight games, will send Jake Westbrook to the mound as the team looks to get back to its winning ways.
The Dodgers enter 26-13 with a stellar 17-4 home record. The 24-year old Kershaw has been fantastic once again, posting a 2.22 ERA and 0.91 WHIP through his first eight starts. He enters at 3-1.
Westbrook is 4-2 this season with a 2.35 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.
Game Date & Time: Saturday, May 19, 9:10 p.m.
Location: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
