Atlanta Braves What We Learned From Game 1 Vs. Dodgers

06 October, 2018, 14:46 | Author: Brenda Erickson
  • Clayton Kershaw earned the right to start Game 1 for the Dodgers

In Game 1 of the 2013 NLDS, he struck out 12 in seven innings while allowing just one run on three hits.

"He had command to both sides of the plate, command at the secondary", Roberts said.

Kershaw did have a 3.89 ERA in six September starts and gave up a combined eight earned runs in two key starts down the stretch, including five against the Giants on Saturday in a must-win game that the Dodgers ultimately won 10-6.

The Braves were on the road at Dodger Stadium in Los Angles for the game, but that didn't stop the loyal fans from coming out for a Friday night viewing party.

The Braves have lost eight straight series openers in the postseason. Yes, those Reds, the ones who had a 67-95 record, good for third worst in the National League this year.

The 31-year-old Ryu missed 3 1/2 months of the season with a groin strain and returned August 15 to post a 1.88 ERA in 52 2/3 innings. So how did the turn around happen?

Game two of the division series took place Friday night in Los Angeles with the Dodgers already taking game one. He got out of a two-out, bases-loaded jam in the first by striking out Yasiel Puig. Every time he spins a gem - and he's had several - we seem to think he's finally got the playoffs all figured out. "He's one of the best, and he showed it". We have more off days now during the season, so it kind of worked out that way. Without Turner, the Dodgers would not be close to winning the division this year. The right-hander, who had not allowed a home run in four of his last five starts, allowed two longballs, including a leadoff drive by Joc Pederson on his third pitch. Joc Pederson led off the game with a solo shot, and Max Muncy provided more cushion with a three-run blast in the second inning. The Dodgers led the NL with 235 home runs in the regular season. "It's just a result of us having a good approach and good at-bats". Also, Muncy was just trailing Mike Trout by.001 points in ISO in the whole Major League Baseball.

The Dodgers will send rookie Walker Buehler to the mound on Sunday. Unfortunately for the fans, Dave Roberts ultimately chose to bring in Kenley Jansen when Tyler Flowers came on to pinch-hit to start the inning. He won't rest on his laurels for this one start.

Liverpool vs Manchester City, Premier League 2018-19
Otamendi and Laporte have been strong in recent starts with Guardiola likely to continue the partnership in this must-win game. An electric start to the game saw Ishak Belfodil open the scoring after just 44 seconds with a fine finish under Ederson .

Buehler was 8-5 with a 2.62 ERA, becoming a solid No. 2 behind ace Clayton Kershaw. It has been a more than just a couple of players involved in achieving this.

Dodgers starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu. That would leave Kevin Gausman and Julio Teheran as the likely starters. A trainer briefly came out to check on Kershaw, who threw one warmup pitch to prove he was fine.

Out of the last sixth seasons, this has been the most turbulent one.

Sometimes small ball is unnecessary and the Dodgers are proving that.

Atlanta though has continued a late-season offensive slump as this was the third time in the past six games they have been shut out.

All in all, this is still a unsafe team going into the playoffs.

The 31-year-old Ryu missed over three months of the season with a groin strain. Still, the playoffs are a known crapshoot and only time will tell if this is the team that will end a 30 year World Series drought.
