NLDS Game 1 - Dodgers at Nationals

  • The Dugout Simi 109 West Cochran Street Simi Valley, CA, 93065 United States (map)

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw takes on Max Scherzer and his 2.96 ERA as the Dodgers travel to the nation's capital on their road to the World Series. As these two Cy Young winners face-off, Kershaw is looking to rewrite his notoriously underwhelming postseason history while Scherzer is looking for his first playoff win with the Nationals. Kershaw has a stunning 27-2 strikeout to walk ratio since he returned from his injury and his 1.69 ERA is the lowest in the league for any pitcher who has thrown a minimum of 140 innings.

Also of note, this is the first time in MLB's 113 year history that two African-American managers have faced each other in a playoff game.
