Joc Pederson Jacks Leadoff Home Run Against Braves

Joc Pederson Jacks Leadoff Home Run Against Braves

Perhaps that's what the Atlanta Braves should have done.

Perhaps most interesting here was Kershaw wasn't pitching for strikeouts, he instead was in complete control of the Braves' contact. The Braves collected just one more hit off Kershaw, for a total of two, as he pounded the strike zone with his left arm.

LA's offense also launched three home runs during the game, which was important because they only had five hits overall.

"That three-run home run was big for all of us, including me", Ryu said.

"I wouldn't really consider it a gut punch", Kershaw said about not pitching Game 1. And in a lot of ways, the rest was normal for Kershaw. We have more off days now during the season, so it kind of worked out that way.

Example A: After a slow start, they won 92 games and needed Game 163 to earn their sixth straight division title. After going 0 for 4 in the Dodgers' Game 1 win, Machado's career postseason line dropped to.148/.207/.296 in 31 plate appearances. That was never much of a question.

Buehler for his part came into the season as one of the Dodgers best prospects, and he did not disappoint.

But not on Thursday. Two, Jansen has been shaky, and they didn't want to see him ruin Kershaw's masterpiece.

"It is impressive. It's not a surprise".

"It wasn't really an agree or disagree type thing", Kershaw said at a news conference before the game.




The Dodgers are 17-6 against Atlanta at Dodger Stadium since the start of the 2013 season, including a 3-0 record in the postseason.

Los Angeles leads the series 1-0 after defeating Atlanta 6-0 in Game 1 on Thursday.

Gausman joined the Braves from Baltimore at the non-waiver trade deadline in July in a six-player deal.

In their 15 2017 postseason games, Dodgers starters pitched at least six innings four times, including three times by Clayton Kershaw. Foltynewicz got into more trouble in the second inning, allowing a three-run shot to Max Muncy after hitting Pederson with a pitch and walking Justin Turner. "I think I have done a better job this year, but they were just patient tonight".

Machado obliges Donovan's request for a signed ball and Machado asks Donovan to spell his name twice, Machado shakes his head and laughs, "It's been a long day, I'm sorry".

"Yeah, maybe", he said through a big smile.

He set down 14 consecutive hitters after Acuna's leadoff double, mixing a low-90s fastball, a darting cutter and a looping curve that buckled knees and left the crowd hanging on what he may throw next. Ozzie Albies OPSed.834 before the break and.714 after it...

The Dodgers obviously think flip-flopping Kershaw and Ryu is the right move, with manager Dave Roberts saying it allows both pitchers to have five days' rest between starts. Kershaw was carving them up like a lifetime butcher. Just three more outs.
