ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Cardinals are still in the hunt for a wild card spot, sitting in third place in the NL Central and a half game behind the Rockies, Phillies and Brewers.

St. Louis will rely on fan favorites Matt Carpenter and Harrison Bader to help keep the hitting streak alive. The Cardinals have been on a hot streak in August going 14-4 so far this month.

Tonight two left handers will face off on the mound, Cardinals will start rookie Austin Gomber to take on Alex wood.

The game will start at 9:10 p.m at Dodger Stadium.
