College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
The two best teams in the National League, the St Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers, face off tonight in game two of their three game set. The Cards got the win in the first game 3-2, thanks to another solid start from former CY Young award winner Chris Carpenter and another long ball from All Star first baseman Albert Pujols. It is safe to say that since the trade deadline there has been no team better then St Louis. In their past ten games they’ve only lost once. What was once a tight race between the Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs for supremacy atop the NL Central division has turned into a one horse race. The Cubs trail their division rivals by six games. It seems like LA has been going the other way. They still boast the best record in the NL, but since the All Star break they have struggled to win games and have seen their once enormous lead in the NL West dwindle to a four and a half game lead over the Colorado Rockies. Since his return to the Dodgers line up Manny Ramirez has been getting hits, but his power numbers are down. In his last ten games he has only one home run. Things that make you go hmm.
In tonight’s game in LA, the Dodgers turn to Chad Billingsley (11-6). Billingsley missed his last start because of a hamstring strain. St Louis hands the ball to their fifth starter, Mitchell Boggs (1-1) and for anyone wondering he is not related to Wade Boggs.
