NL Wild Card: Dodgers vs Cardinals

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The 106-win Los Angeles Dodgers put their season on the line in the NL wild-card game against the red-hot St. Louis Cardinals tonight. No team has ever won so many games and failed to win its division, but LA couldn’t catch the 107-win San Francisco Giants, forcing the club into the one-game playoff. Max Scherzer will start for the Dodgers. The 37-year-old three-time Cy Young Award winner is from the St. Louis suburb of Chesterfield. He’ll face Cardinals 40-year-old Adam Wainwright.
