Without ace Clayton Kershaw, the Los Angeles Dodgers send Stephen Fife to the mound Sunday to take on the St. Louis Cardinals as Los Angeles looks to take three of four from the Cardinals in Los Angeles.

Fife, a rookie, had been in Triple-A most of 2012, but was called up earlier in the season for three starts, during which he compiled an 0-1 record with a 2.16 ERA. Fife and the Dodgers will look to send the Cardinals to their ninth loss in their last 11 contests.

The Cardinals counter on Sunday with Adam Wainwright, who has struggled in his last three starts, posting a 8.56 ERA over the three appearances.

The meeting between the two clubs as the season enters its home stretch is their 11th and final showdown. The Dodgers have taken six of the 10 previous meetings, including a home sweep of the Cardinals in May.

First pitch is at 1:10 p.m. PST.
