Kershaw at Wrigley

Once again the Dodgers go for the series clincher, but this time with their ace Clayton Kershaw who will try to hold the Cubs in check long enough for the Dodger offense to find a way to get to Jose Quintana. Clayton has made only three starts at Wrigley during the regular season. With this start tonight, he will have started as many games in the postseason against the Cubs as he has during the regular season.

Regular Season at Wrigley:

2015-06-22   CHC  L 2-4 7.0 4  3  2  9  2  64

Just one year ago Clayton was hammered in the decisive game six which sent the Dodgers home. One week earlier he beat the Cubs in game two 1 – 0 in what was his best game ever in the postseason.

Postseason at Wrigley:

Date         Series Gm# Opp  Rslt  IP H ER BB SO HR GSc
2016-10-22     NLCS   6 CHC L 0-5 5.0 7  4  0  4  2  39
2016-10-16     NLCS   2 CHC W 1-0 7.0 2  0  1  6  0  78

Clayton was lifted after only five innings in his game one start against the Cubs. With this being game five, and an off day tomorrow, expect Dave Roberts to have the same short leash. Clayton might go six but he won’t see the 7th inning.

    Gotta keep the ball down in The Windy City.

    Sharp command & control.

    A start similar to his last outing at Dodger Stadium
    could wind up with some baseballs getting
    Lost In the Crowd.
