The Dodgers took 13 Innings last night to claw their way back into a tie. It shouldn’t have been so hard and the Brewers are still going back to Miller Field. It is the final game at Chavez Ravine (we hope) and even if they leave 2 – 3 the Brewers will have the advantage.
Dodgers will start Clayton Kershaw (L, 9 – 5, 2.73 ERA). He lost the opener against the Brewers allowing 5 Runs on 6 Hits with 1 Home Run and 2 Walks in only 3 Innings for an in game ERA of a whopping 12.00. Some Ace, and now he’s on short rest. He throws Sliders and Fastballs with Curves for variety.
The Brew Crew will send out Wade Miley (L, 5 – 2, 2.57 ERA) again. He did an outstanding job allowing only 2 Hits in 5.2 Innings which was about 3 more than he was expected to last. He throws all kinds of junk starting with Cutters but including a fair portion of Fastballs, Curves, and Changeups.
