Dodgers on a roll! Hopefully they can get that #2 seed, just one game behind.

Stephen Strasburg is out, starting catcher Wilson Ramos tore his ACL Monday night he's out, MVP candidate if not for some Bryant kid in Chicago, Daniel Murphy who is currently injured may not be ready for the playoffs . Congrats on the series win Dodgers, good luck against the Cubs/Giants/Mets/Cardinals in the NLCS!

The Padres called up 3 or 4 guys from their AAA team and they have 2 rookies in their roster. Can't believe the division champions Dodgers are about to get swept by a "AAA team". Playoffs will be tough if they continue to be inconsistent.

Dodgers have been quite good, recently. Not sure if they will be able to grab home field advantage for the NLDS though.

Its looking like the Nationals vs Dodgers although its not looking real good for the home field advantage at the present time. The Dodgers have two more losses than the Nationals with 4 more games left on the schedule, so nothing is clinched as of now. The good news is that the Dodgers were 5-1 against the Nationals this season.

My recap from the Nats thread a game 1 4-3 Dodgers win to take a 1-0 series lead:


Corey Seager took the first pitch he saw from Scherzer and took it out to left-center for a solo home run. In the 2nd Kershaw loaded the bases with 2 singles and an error, but left them loaded when he got Scherzer to pop up to end the inning. In the 3rd Andrew Toles started with a single, after a Kershaw sac bunt moved him to 2nd, arch nemesis (and the one thing Mets, Braves & Nats fans can all agree on is our hatred for him) Chase Utley brought him home to make it 2-0, and 2 batters later Justin Turner hit a 2 run homer to make it 4-0. In the bottom half, Harper doubled with 1 out, and after a Werth walk, they executed a double steal, and both scored on Rendon's single, but he got left on 2nd. In the 4th, Severino started with a double, a Scherzer ground out moved him to 3rd, and he scored on Turner's sac fly (actually the only ball Turner put in play on the evening; he finished with 3 strikeouts and a walk in his other 4 plate appearances), and in the 5th Werth got left on 3rd. Dodgers had a scoring threat in the 6th when Turner got to 3rd, but he got left there, had runners on 1st & 2nd with 2 outs in the 7th, and they left the bases loaded in the 9th, while the Nats had a Robinson double with 2 outs in the 8th. Scherzer (0-1 [20-8 overall]) allowed 4 runs on 5 hits (2 home runs) with 0 walks and 5 strikeouts. Kershaw (1-0 [13-4 overall]) allowed 3 runs on 8 hits with 1 walk and 7 strikeouts, Joe Blanton (1st hold(, Grant Dayton (1st hold), and Pedro Baez (1st hold) combined to pitch a hitless 2.1 with 2 walks and 1 strikeouts while Kenley Jansen (1st save) allowed 1 hit in 1.2 with 3 strikeouts recording the final 5 outs.


Game 2 of the series goes tomorrow afternoon: Rich Hill (12-5, 2.12) is the scheduled starter for the Dodgers while Tanner Roark (16-10, 2.83) is scheduled for the Nats. Game time at 4 PM.

Great game Dodgers, glad you held on for a win. And I actually discovered announcers worse than ESPN. Great going Fox Sports, you win the worst announcer prize. If only we could have Vin Scully for a few more games.

Harold Reynolds is terrible. For all the people that complain about Jessica Mendoza being on air, meanwhile Reynolds is freaking awful! He's actually not that bad on MLB tonight though which is surprising.

I can't stand Reynolds anymore. He kept mentioning how Kershaw is not used to having Grandal catching him. Grandal has caught him plenty of times to be effective.

Who do you pitch in game 4. Urias or Kershaw.

I'm kind of on the fence here. I think Urias has a better chance of winning game 4 at home than game 5 in DC. I think Kershaw can win game 5 in DC.

But starting Kershaw game 5 means he doesn't start till game 3 in LA vs Chicago. I'd kinda rather have him start game 2 in Chicago because I think he has a better chance than anybody else while home field can benefit the other starters.
