By Josh Liskiewitz/APThe Dodgers will play the Cubs at Dodger Stadium on Monday night, and while the game will probably be the highlight of the game, there’s a little more to it than that.
First off, the Dodgers are still undefeated in the NL West.
But they’re also just 10-3 in the second half of the season.
And their season has been built around Clayton Kershaw, who’s pitching for the first time since June 24.
Kershaw has pitched a career-best 134 2/3 innings, and has thrown four no-hitters in the past two weeks.
His dominance in those games has helped the Dodgers win 10 of the past 11 games.
But Kershaw has also pitched well in a limited role in the Dodgers’ bullpen.
Kershaw pitched just two innings in Game 1, but in Game 2 he allowed six runs and nine hits, striking out four and walking none.
His outing against the Cubs came on May 10 and was his first relief appearance since April 26, when he threw two scoreless innings in a loss to the Rangers.
The Dodgers have had some issues in the bullpen this year.
Injuries to the bullpen have forced some players out of games.
Clayton Kersh was lost for the season in May, and Clayton Kershems absence has caused a huge turnover in the depth of the Dodgers bullpen.
The pitching staff has also struggled in the postseason.
The Dodgers are 7-1 in the first round and just 3-2 in the playoffs, which has left many wondering if they’ll be able to compete in the World Series.
If Kershaw starts again in Game 3, the rest of the pitching staff will likely have a much better chance to make it out of the first two games.
But Kershaw is still Kershaw.
Kersh is still going to pitch, and he’s still going out there and doing whatever he can to help the Dodgers get through the second two games of the World Baseball Classic.
That being said, if Kershaw can’t come through in Game 4, the lineup for Game 5 is pretty much set.
The starters are Clayton Kersham, Corey Seager, Jon Lester, David Price and Zack Greinke.
And it’s pretty clear who will be the starting pitcher.
The starters have been great in Game 5, but the bullpen has been good as well.
If it were up to Kershaw and the rest, it would be Kershaw who would have to get through Game 5.
But the bullpen is better than that, and if it weren’t for the starters, Kershaw would have a lot of success against the bullpen.
So while Kershaw might not have to go out and pitch to the best pitchers in the world in Game 6, the game plan for Game 6 is pretty simple.
There will be two Kershays, and two Kershemans. That’s it.
