The St. Louis Cardinals secured a postseason berth in the Wild Card Game on September 28.[3] The Cardinals previously appeared in the 2012 NL Wild Card Game, defeating the Atlanta Braves,[4] and the 2020 NL Wild Card Series, where they fell to the San Diego Padres, two games to one.[5]

With the San Francisco Giants having clinched the National League West with the best record (107–55), thus clinching home-field advantage throughout the entire playoffs, the Los Angeles Dodgers, who set an MLB record for the most wins by a wild card team (106–56) hosted the Cardinals in their first wild card game appearance after winning the NL West for eight consecutive seasons.[6][7][8]

The Cardinals won 22 of their final 25 regular-season games, which included a 17-game winning streak, the longest in franchise history.[9] After acquiring Max Scherzer and Trea Turner at the trade deadline, the Dodgers went 44–13 the rest of the season.[10]

This was the sixth postseason meeting between the Dodgers and Cardinals, with the Cardinals previously winning four and the Dodgers winning one. In the regular season series, the Dodgers posted a 4–3 record against the Cardinals.[11]

The Dodgers' All-Star first baseman Max Muncy was not on the roster due to a collusion at first base with Jace Peterson on the final day of the season. It was later reported he suffered a dislocated elbow on the play and his status remained an unknown if the Dodgers advanced.[12]
