The Cardinals send RHP Jack Flaherty (5-6, 3.93 ERA) to the hill in this final game of the series to face the Dodgers’ redheaded rookie RHP Dustin May (0-1, 4.76 ERA). Flaherty got his first win since May 19 his last time out. He beat the Dodgers in the Cardinals’ sweep of the series in April. May will make his second big league start; he struck out three and walked none in 5 2/3 innings in his first, giving up nine hits and four runs last Friday.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 2003 Fireballer Eric Gagne ties the single-season record for consecutive saves to start a season, established in 1995 by Jose Mesa of the Indians. The Dodger closer strikes out the Reds’ side in the ninth inning for his 38th save this season and 46th consecutive regular-season save overall.
