Did anyone stay up to watch the game last night? I tried. I really really tried. I’m regretting it today that I didn’t stay up for the whole game.
Let’s start off:
Dodgers had Kershaw on the mound after they evened up the series 2-2. Kershaw has been one of the most dominating pitchers in history of baseball. Seems the tables turned, right? Dodgers bats gave him a 3-run lead, which they were 100-1 with giving Kershaw an early lead. Let’s go back to Kershaw being one of the most dominating pitchers in baseball history. I should rephrase that to be most dominating regular season pitcher. I don’t know if it’s the stage that he can’t compete or the batters, in the MLB, just get better during the postseason. To me, it’s a little bit of both. At this point, he’s just seeing the best of the best in baseball so it makes sense that he takes a dip in productivity. On the other side, I think there are pitchers that are meant for the postseason (i.e. Madison Bumgarner).
Now the series goes back to L.A. for games 6 and possibly 7. I believe that this series is destined to go to game 7. I want this series to go to 7 games. I won’t make the mistake by going to bed before the games are actually over.
Prediction time: Dodgers win game 6 to force game 7, but Astros win game 7 to take home the trophy. Astros have the team of destiny. Think Boston Red Sox of 2013.
Who do you have in the series?
