Winners of 10 of their last 12 games, the Los Angeles Dodgers look to continue their hot streak in the second game of a four-game series against the Cardinals in St. Louis.

However, the Dodgers will do so without Corey Seager, the current leading vote-getter for National League All-Stars at shortstop, who is not starting tonight.

The Cardinals lost their series to LA last week, but did pin one of those losses on the Boys in Blue.

Kenta Maeda toes the rubber for the Dodgers while Michael Wacha starts for St. Louis tonight, a rematch of last Thursday’s Dodgers victory in Los Angeles. Wacha was pegged for six runs in four innings pitched, while Maeda survived a rocky first inning to last five innings and gain a victory.

The Dodgers last played a four-game series in St. Louis August 5-8, 2013, outscoring the Redbirds 22-12 while winning three of the contests.
