St. Louis Cardinals Have Dodgers On The Ropes But Can L.A. Come Back?

The St. Louis Cardinals have taken a comfortable 3-1 lead on the Los Angeles Dodgers, after defeating the “blue” 4-2 tonight in L.A.

To make matters worst the dodgers will face elimination tomorrow, in my opinion without shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who was playing with a broken rib and left in the sixth.

The play of the game came from an unlikely source, when Shane Robinson squeaked a home run off of J.P. Howell, which gave the cardinals momentum and a bigger lead.

The dodgers did have there chance in the bottom of the 9th, however the opportunity was lost as quickly as it was found, when Andre Ethier’s base hit was meaningless when Yasiel Puig hit into a double play.

Trevor Rosenthal was able to get the final out by way of a strike out, putting the dodgers incredible season in jeopardy of coming to an end.

Though things look grim for the dodgers, the cardinals path to the world series is not easy. They will have to face Zack Greinke tomorrow and if they fail to win Kershaw will have another opportunity on the mound.

Now remember, the cardinals have blown a 3-1 series lead before. Last year, the Giants were able to comeback and defeat the cardinals and go on to win the World Series. So I now ask you, do you think the dodgers season is done with tonight’s loss?
