Tomorrow expect for Kershaw to get his 300 strikeout, and maybe even more, and for the Dodgers to end the season with the confidence, competitiveness, and the mindset of going all the way to the World Series. “Those are the kinds of things that are important to him”.
“Just was trying to get outs”, Greinke said of his stellar season. “This year there wasn’t hardly any errors behind me the whole year”.
“We’re playing for home field”.
Greinke’s 1.68 ERA is the lowest in the majors since Greg Maddux’s 1.63 in 1995.
“I don’t really think anything about that stuff”, Greinke said.
Los Angeles Dodgers’ Justin Turner, right, scores on a single by… The Hall of Fame broadcaster, who turns 88 in November, missed the team’s four-game trip to San Francisco earlier this week, which had been planned in advance.
If it had dragged on much longer, “you start getting a little nervous, you start panicking a little bit”, Kershaw said. Garvin, by all accounts a hard drinker with a violent temper, had a odd season, as his impressive ERA led to only a 5-15 record with the bad Superbas. He finished 3-2 with a 2.41 ERA in five home starts. I don’t know if it’s the National Football League or NBA where it’s a huge, huge deal. “That’s all I pay attention to, I guess”.
Closer Kenley Jansen allowed a hit and hit a batter before working a scoreless ninth to record his 36th save. As the Dodgers are likely to earn the W whenever either of their two aces has the ball in his hand, opposing teams face an uphill battle whenever they stare down the pitching mound. “It was good to see him get it quick”. “I tried to put my best foot forward”. Crawford scored on first baseman Adrian Gonzalez’s RBI single and Kendrick came home on a fielder’s choice for a 2-0 Los Angeles’ lead. “Hopefully, we can sweep the Padres to give ourselves a chance to get home-field advantage”.
Dodgers: OF Yasiel Puig was playing four innings in an instructional league game and is now running at 100 percent on his strained right hamstring in what manager Don Mattingly called “pretty miraculous” and “legendary” – yet that doesn’t mean he’s certain to make the division series roster for the best-of-five series against the Mets. He has hit. 256 with 11 home runs and a. 764 OPS. He won’t start on Sunday, but will probably enter at a few point during the game.
“We don’t want to go to New York“, Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal said. “But I feel good pitching in New York also”.
It’s the first time in franchise history that the Dodgers have been to the playoffs in three consecutive seasons, let alone won three straight division titles.
“Hedgie had great at-bats all night”.
The Dodgers (89-70), who have clinched the National League West title, finish the regular season at home with three games against the San Diego Padres.
