Tonight’s Dodger game against the Cardinals reminds me of last year’s NLCS. Fortunately, the outcome was much more positive, with a win for the Dodgers. It was the first time that the teams have faced each other since last year’s NLCS.
Tonight’s game at Dodger Stadium was billed as the battle of the pitchers, with Josh Beckett, fresh off his no-hitter, and Adam Wainwright, whose ERA was similar to Beckett’s coming into the game.
The Dodgers had a shutout tonight, with Beckett’s hitless seven innings, Brian Wilson on his bobblehead night in the eighth, and Hanley Jansen closing it out in the ninth.
