The Dodgers are only the third team in Major League history to make the postseason without having a pitcher win more than 12 games. Potential Game 4 starter Chad Billingsley topped the Dodgers' staff with 12 wins and was followed by 11-game winner Randy Wolf -- in fact, the only other member of Los Angeles' extended rotation in double figures.
The Dodgers host St. Louis for the first two games of the National League Division Series.
Los Angeles and the Cardinals will meet tonight at 9:37 Eastern time in the first game.
They play tomorrow (Thursday) at 6:07 ET.
After Friday off, the teams move to St. Louis Saturday and Sunday, with the times to be determined. A fifth game, if needed will be in Los Angeles on Tuesday, October 13.
