St Louis Cardinals vs Los Angeles Dodgers takes place in the NLCS Game 4 on Tuesday night with the Dodgers now looking to level the series up at 2-2 having claimed their first win in Game 3. Tonight's big game will start at 8.07 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Today's game will be the first in the series without a truly ace pitcher out on the mound to start the game. Ricky Nolasco will be taking the ball for the first time this postseason, having missed out on his last scheduled start in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves when he was scratched late on. In that case the Dodgers went with Clayton Kershaw.
Nolasco of course arrived to Los Angeles in July following a trade with the Miami Marlins. The right-hander went 8-3 with a 3.52 ERA in 16 appearances with the Dodgers.
However, the Dodgers will be hoping that Nolasco can regain his form, as he has struggled badly in his three most recent starts where he has surrendered 17 earned runs in 12 innings.
Meanwhile for the Cardinals, Lance Lynn will be thrown the ball to go opposite Nolasco. He has also been in a bit of trouble lately and in his last start in the postseason he was smashed for five runs on seven hits in just 4 1/3rd innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Oct. 4.
He has of course already pitched in this series, coming out to produce two scoreless frames in the extra innings win in Game 1.
