Dodgers Notes

October 19, 2017

Again tonight, in Wrigley Field vs the World Champion, Cubs, their 2016 NLCS conquerors, the L.A. Dodgers will try to win their 19th N.L. title, at least, it would be 19, with a World Series appearance to follow.

Thrice, post-season underachieving pitcher, Clayton Kershaw was the game’s losing pitcher in a game in which L.A. (sans even a World Series appearance since winning it all in ’88), was eliminated from the ‘offs. That includes last season when he was asked to leave early as the Cubs routed him in game 6 at Wrigley Field and ended a 71 year pennant drought.

Tonight he has a chance and is an 8 to 5 game “fave,” to start a game in which L.A. wraps up their 19th World Series appearance (they are 6-12 in W.S. play but were once (0-7). They are (3-8) in W.S. play vs their probable World Series opponent, the Yankees. Once their record vs the Yankees in W.S. play stood at (0-5).
