If the Dodgers are to be eliminated tonight on the road, they will not go down without a fight. With their backs against the wall, Los Angeles skipper Don Mattingly sends his ace to the mound, as LHP Clayton Kershaw (MLB Playoffs 2013: 1-1, 0.47 ERA) gets the nod this evening.
In this National League Championship Series, the former Cy Young winner has put up the following numbers through 6.1 innings of work: 2 hits, 1 run, 0 earned-runs, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, AVG .111, WHIP 0.50, and GO/AO 2.00.
Opposing Kershaw tonight will be 22-year-old rookie sensation, RHP Michael Wacha (MLB Playoffs 2013: 2-0, 0.64 ERA).
Although the Texas A&M product looked promising after going 4-1 with a 2.78 ERA in 15 appearances (9 starts), no one could have predicted he would be untouchable when it mattered most.
During the NLCS schedule 2013, Wacha has pitched 6.2 innings, allowing 5 hits, no runs, one free pass and 8 punchouts.
He has limited the powerful lineup of the Dodgers to a .200 batting average, along with a 0.90 walks-and-hits-per-innings pitched and a 1.00 ground-out-to-air-out ratio.
