Game 2: Clayton Kershaw vs. Michael WachaAfter an extra innings battle last night that finally ended with a Cardinals victory, the Dodgers are looking to bounce back in a critical game 2. Ace Clayton Kershaw will certainly be at his best tonight and he will be facing 22 year old Michael Wacha. Wacha has been arguably the hottest pitcher in baseball in the last month and this will be his first career start against the Dodgers. The Dodgers will be without Andre Ethier in the outfield but Hanley Ramirez is in the lineup after some concern that a rib injury would hold him out of the game.
Prediction- Dodgers win 2-1 in a fierce pitching battle.
