The Los Angeles Dodgers and host St. Louis Cardinals continue their pursuit of division crowns when they emerge from the All-Star break Friday for a big three-game series. The Dodgers won their final two games before the break and have gone 19-10 since June 13 to seize the top spot in the National League West, which they have won three of the last six years. They made their move largely on the strength of some phenomenal play on the road, where they are an NL-best 29-19.St. Louis seemingly also has shrugged aside a sluggish beginning by going 21-13 before the break and enters the second half just one game behind first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central, which the Cardinals have captured seven of the last 14 seasons. Los Angeles limited St. Louis to a total of four runs in taking three of four games at home in June. This marks the Dodgers' first visit to St. Louis since losing Game 6 of last year's National League Championship Series by a 9-0 margin.TV: 8:15 p.m. ET, MLBN, SportsNet (Los Angeles), FSN Midwest (St. Louis)PITCHING MATCHUP: Dodgers RH Dan Haren (8-6, 4.23 ERA) vs. Cardinals RH Lance Lynn (10-6, 3.14)Haren's recent struggles continued when he surrendered four runs in four innings of a loss to San Diego on July 11, falling to 1-2 with a 6.49 ERA over a five-start span.
