Take #912 Los Angeles Dodgers RL/-110 over Atlanta Braves (9:37 PM ET Friday, October 5)
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to take 2-0 lead in the National League Divisional series when they host the Atlanta Braves. Game time is 9:37 ET at Dodger Stadium where LA is a -220 moneyline favorite. The total is 7.
Los Angeles (1-0, 1-0 home) captured the series opener 6-0 as Hun-Jin Ry threw a seven inning gem allowing just four singles with eight strikeouts and no walks. The Dodgers also hit three home runs with Max Muncy launching a three-run blast and Joc Pederson and Kike Hernandez adding solo blasts. Manager Dave Roberts, who drew some criticism for his decision to start Ryu in the opener and not Clayton Kershaw, looks like a genius now. He’s got a 1-0 lead and his ace lefthander ready to go in Game 2.
Meanwhile, Atlanta (0-1, 0-1 road) wasn’t able to overcome a shaky start from its ace. Mike Foltynewicz gave up four runs, three hits, and two walks in two innings. Leadoff man and likely Rookie of the Year Ronald Acuna went 0 for 4 with two of the Braves 11 strikeouts.
Atlanta will look to even the series when it sends Anibal Sanchez (7-6, 2.83 ERA) to the hill. He’s 2-4 with a 2.79 ERA in seven postseason starts with his last playoff appearance coming in 2014 with Detroit.
Kershaw (9-5, 2.73) is 7-7 with a 4.35 ERA in 24
postseason games. He gave up four homers in Game 1 of last year's NLDS, the
most allowed by a Dodgers pitcher in playoff history.
|Clayton Kershaw hopes to celebrate a Game 2 victory tonight against Atlanta|
The Dodgers played four “playoff intensity” games to advance to the NLDS and picked up where they left off in the regulation season. This could easily be a sweep in the making.
