To the chants of “We want Utley” to Yoenis Cespedes sending a rocket shot to Times Square, the Mets were having a lot of fun Monday in their Game 3 win over the Dodgers.
New York racked up 13 runs in a 13-7 offensive slugfest win.
The Dodgers will send out LH Clayton Kershaw as they are in a win or go home scenario.
The Dodgers will send out LH Clayton Kershaw, who is just 1-6 in the postseason as they try to keep their season alive. Los Angeles saw Kershaw drop Game 1, but will ask the southpaw to turn to his regular season ways Tuesday night.
In 9 regular season starts against the Mets, Kershaw has been dominant going 6-0 with an ERA of just 1.34.
Kershaw’s playoff problems have stemmed from the inability to keep the ball in the park. He allowed 3 runs in 6.2 innings in Game 1, but got no offensive support from the Dodgers. The lefty struck out 11 in the outing.
In 12 postseason appearances (9 starts), Kershaw has posted an ERA of 4.99. While he is pitching on short rest, his leash and pitch count is essentially endless as the Dodgers will pull out all stops in this one.
The Mets have battled plenty of adversity and have built off the energy of their crowd and hot bats to put themselves in a position to clinch a spot in the NLCS.
New York erupted for 13 runs in Game 3 as they did a little bit of everything on Monday. Curtis Granderson drove in 5 runs and got homers from Yoenis Cespedes and Travis d’Arnaud in the win.
New York will turn to Steven Matz, who finished 4-0 in the regular season with an ERA of only 2.27.
Matz has not pitched since September 24th as he’s been battling back issues. Prior to his issues, 1 of those 4 wins came against these Dodgers. On July 5th, Matz allowed only 2 hits on 6 scoreless innings in the win over Los Angeles.
New York has gone 50-32 at home this year.
