MLB Playoffs: Phillies vs. Cards Odds

Lance Berkman and the Cardinals will play host to the Phillies in Game 4 of their National League Division Series on Wednesday night, knowing they let Game 3 sllip away.

Edwin Jackson (12-9, 3.79 ERA) is slated to start for the Cardinals on Wednesday, with Roy Oswalt (9-10, 3.69 ERA) getting the ball for the Phillies. Philadelphia won Game 3 on Tuesday to take a 2-1 series lead.

Oswalt hammered the Cardinals in September but has struggled against them in recent years, with his team going 1-7 in his prior eight starts against St. Louis.

Oswalt is 5-0 with a 3.25 ERA in 10 career postseason starts, including 2-0 with a 3.15 ERA in three against the Cardinals.

But check out the Cardinal run against RHP starters - before losing to Roy Halladay in Game 1, the Cards were on a 15-3 run against righty starters. [ Bet tons of player props on strikeouts and home runs and more at Bovada today ]
