Los Angeles Dodgers vs St. Louis Cardinals. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers.


St. Louis recently played better baseball after a shaky start to the season, but Flaherty’s terrible numbers make it difficult to put any faith in him.


The Cardinals supported him well during his previous start, during which he shackled the Brewers.


Still, they will need to do the same thing again in this contest against a Dodgers lineup capable of hammering top pitchers, much less one who is having trouble. 


Kershaw pitched well this season despite losing his most recent start to the Twins. He did rather well against the Cardinals in his history, and the Dodgers can score runs.


As they depart town with no worse than a series split, give the Dodgers the advantage. The Los Angeles Dodgers will win 7-2.
