Cardinals vs. Dodgers live score, updates, highlights of the 2021 National League wild card game



The Dodgers and Cardinals were able to finish the season strong.

Los Angeles had been chasing the Giants for most of the past month, and while it settled for the top wild-card spot, LA still finished with the second-best winning percentage from September through the end of the regular season (.759, just behind San Francisco .767).

The third hottest team? Those would be the Cardinals, who stunned the baseball world by launching a 17-game winning streak to salvage what seemed like a lost season and finally flee with second place wild card behind a .719 winning percentage from September to the end. of the year.

After throwing a 3.05 ERA, the lowest in a full season since 2014, Wainwright will appear in his ninth postseason. He has a 2.89 postseason ERA in 109 innings of work and has struck out 118 batters.

Scherzer could be the NL favorite after joining the Dodgers midseason in a trade with the Nationals. Now he will make his eighth trip to the playoffs. He has a 3.38 career ERA in 112 innings with 137 strikeouts, having made appearances with the Tigers, Nationals and now the Dodgers.
