Two lefties will start a critical four-game set in St. Louis tonight with plenty of playoff implications for two clubs doing all they can to secure a postseason berth in the extremely tight National League.
As far as the series opener goes, there’s one key item above all else that has made this over/under worth having action on: Kershaw is about to make an important start for his Dodgers while in a clear rhythm.
When Kershaw is on his game, he’s still the best going in all of baseball. Right now, that appears to be the case as the former NL MVP and Cy Young winner has given up no more than two earned runs in each of his last nine outings — with all nine clocking in as quality starts.
