History isn’t in the Dodgers corner

Since 1941 the Dodgers are 0 – 6 in a seven-game postseason series where they have trailed 3 games to 2.  They are 0 – 2 in the NLCS when trailing 3 games to 2.

1985 – Cardinals closed it out in the sixth game in Los Angeles. The infamous Jack Clark game who slugged three-run home run off of Tom Niedenfuer in the top of the 9th to give the Cardinals the 7 – 5 victory and a trip to the World Series. The Cardinals lost to the Royals in a seven-game epic World Series. If you watch the MLB video link below, take a look at Pedro Guerrero’s reaction.

2013 – Much like 2016 the Dodgers came into game six with Clayton Kershaw pitching on the road to try to tie the series at three games apiece. It ended with the Cardinals hammering Kershaw and winning 9 – 0.

Of course, the Cubs have their own history they are battling, as every Cub fan over the age of 21 has to remember the 2003 collapse at home against the Marlins in the NLCS.  The Cubs had Mark Prior and Kerry Wood lined up for games 6 and 7.  The Cubs were outscored 17 – 9 in those two games.
