We’re here! Postseason baseball! While the Dodgers, unfortunately, missed out on division title number 9 in a row (thanks in part to the useless Padres), there’s still a reason to feel great as a Dodger fan as we head into the Wild Card game.
- The Dodgers were the best team in baseball in the second half
- The Wild Card game will be at Dodger Stadium where LA went 58-23, tops in MLB
- They’ve rattled off 15 straight wins at Dodger Stadium
- They beat St. Louis 4 games to 3 in the regular season
- After rattling off 17 wins in a row, they stumbled to a 2-3 record to end the season
- Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright hasn’t won a postseason game since 2013
- Max Scherzer has a 3 game postseason win streak and hasn’t lost a game since 2017
So, with that in mind, let’s look ahead at what comes next for the Dodgers.
When do the Dodgers play next?
The National League Wild Card game is set for Wednesday, October 6. First pitch is scheduled for 5:10 PM PT.
Who will the Dodgers play?
The Dodgers will take on the St. Louis Cardinals at Dodger Stadium. St. Louis will turn to 40-year-old veteran Adam Wainwright (17-7, 3.05 ERA) in the winner take all (winner move on, really) one game playoff. Dave Roberts will turn to Max Scherzer (15-4, 2.46 ERA) to keep the Dodgers’ postseason hopes alive.
How can I watch the game?
The game will be televised on TBS.
Dodgers Injury News
The Dodgers took a hit on Sunday as Max Muncy was lost due to an elbow injury. LA manager Dave Roberts said it is very unlikely that he’ll be available for this Wild Card round.
LA also lost long-time ace Clayton Kershaw to an arm issue on Friday. He will likely miss the entire postseason.
