Well, the road trip was not a disaster in the sense that the Dodgers return home just 3.5 games out of first. But it was horrible, nonetheless. And now the Cardinals are in town for another showdown. I think this series is huge, in that a series win vs. St. Louis will go a long way to improving the team's chances in the NL West, and another sweep will mean last place for sure.
The big weekend begins now.
The Pitching Match-up:

For the (53-41) St. Louis Cardinals:
