The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers, who happen to be the two hottest teams in baseball, meet in Milwaukee tonight in the opener of the best-of-seven National League Championship Series. First pitch is set for 8:09 PM ET at Miller Park where the Dodgers are -155 moneyline favorites. The total is 7.5
Los Angeles (3-1, 1-1 road) is in pursuit of a second straight appearance in the World Series. They have gotten hot at the right time, winning 17 of their last 22.
Milwaukee (3-0, 2-0 home) hasn’t been to the Fall Classic since 1982 but this year’s team has a great chance to end that 36-year drought. The Brewers, who have won 11 straight, posted the best regular season record in the National League (96-67) and swept the Colorado Rockies in the NLDS.
Lefthander’s Clayton Kershaw and Gio Gonzalez will square off in the series opener.
In the NLDS, Kershaw (1-0, 0.00) tossed eight scoreless innings of two-hit ball in the Game 2 victory over Atlanta. He went 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in two turns against Milwaukee this season and is 6-5 with a 2.86 ERA in 14 career starts against the Brew Crew. Overall Kershaw is 8-7 with a 4.08 ERA in 25 career postseason appearances (20 starts).
Gonzalez (0-0, 0.00 ERA) was 3-0 with a 2.13 ERA in five starts after being picked up from the Washington Nationals but hasn't pitched in 11 days. He’s had good success against the Dodgers going 4-1 with a 1.89 ERA in six career outings.
