He says he hasn't made a decision.
Kershaw finished out the World Series a year ago by pitching four scoreless innings of relief in Game 7. He lasted just three innings in losing the NLCS opener while giving up five runs - four earned - at Miller Park. Kershaw has struck out a combined five batters in his two postseason starts, which means a lot of balls in play - and a lot left to chance. Kershaw had his best performance of this postseason, limiting the Brewers to a run and three hits while striking out nine. He said the Dodgers' play in Game 1 was "unacceptable".
Here's Dodgers president Stan Kasten (jokingly) LYING TO OUR FACE about Clayton Kershaw - saying he's not focused on getting a new deal done with the pitcher - but that's okay, we know what's really going on.
If Cubs fans had to wait over 100 years to watch their team win a World Series, then every Dodger fan in the area should leave their couches and get pumped for this game.
Now he has ventured into another stage in his career, with fewer fastballs and more pitches on the outer edges of the strike zone. And by Wednesday evening, after Kershaw lifted the Dodgers one more time, the "6" became a "5".
"I don't know if it was that much better, just a little bit better execution maybe".
The Brewers' Curtis Granderson had a pinch-hit RBI double in the ninth inning off Ryan Madson. Austin Barnes came up with a clutch hit in the fifth to tie the game at one after Taylor swiped third base. "It was huge to get to third base, less than two outs, give us a shot to do some things, and him going to second base on the errant throw was big".
Muncy grounded a 1-2 pitch from Brandon Woodruff into left field, scoring Turner, who led off with a single. Domingo Santana contributed an RBI pinch-hit double. Junior Guerra took the loss in relief as he surrendered one earned run on two hits with four strikeouts and no walks over 3 2/3 innings.
Los Angeles extended the lead to 5-1 in the seventh on Turner's RBI single that scored Kershaw, who walked, and pinch-hitter Brian Dozier's RBI groundout.
Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said: "I thought it was worth the risk of trying to expand to Bellinger, and if the at-bat goes to Grandal, we walk Grandal". The Dodgers have staff ace Clayton Kershaw on the mound Wednesday, while the Brewers will counter with Wade Miley, who was dominating in Game 2. Now that the series has shifted to Los Angeles, the Dodgers appear to be struggling against all pitchers.
The Dodgers series-tying victory on Tuesday was in large part possible because of the work Rich Hill did in the first five innings of the game.
