Dodgers Feeling Confident Heading Into Kershaw’s Game 6 In NLCS

Los Angeles Dodgers v Florida Marlins

ST. LOUIS (CBSLA.com/AP) — Michael Wacha outpitched NL Cy Young front-runner Clayton Kershaw in Game 2 and the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run to take a 2-0 series lead. They’re matched again in Game 6 Friday night, the precocious right-hander and the lefty who’d be at the top of anyone’s list to work a must-win.

Kershaw is the major league ERA leader three years running and worked the Dodgers’ division clincher against Atlanta on three days’ rest. He gave up just two hits in six innings of Game 1 and was ready to go long before the Dodgers’ bats came alive.

“I don’t really think about the what-ifs,” Kershaw said. “I always assumed I was going to pitch Game 6.”

Kershaw has a career 1-2 postseason record despite an impressive 2.88 postseason ERA.
