Dodgers will advance to NL Division Series and face either the Padres or Cardinals
Los Angeles- The Los Angeles Dodgers have swept the series against the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0.
In the early stages of the game, the Dodgers could not figure out Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff. Wooduff was mixing up the pitches and was not staying with his slider. He was making the Dodgers' hitters chase the ball. In the fifth inning the Dodgers' offense got rolling, as they scored three runs in the inning. Clayton Kershaw was a stud in the game and struck out 13 players for the Brewers. After the win, Kershaw had this to say about advancing to the NL Division Series in Texas.
"If you would've told me that the first time I'm ever gonna pitch in Texas is in the division series against somebody that's not the Rangers. I mean, it's the craziest thing ever," Kershaw said. "I've been to Arlington a few times. I've never actually gotten to pitch there, so it's gonna be weird. I live literally 10 minutes from the team hotel, and so I'm gonna be staring at friends and family through a glass wall. It's a weird deal, but the good news is, it's a weird deal for everybody. I think the bubble will be fun."
Kershaw broke history with becoming the first play in Dodgers' history to have 13 strikeouts since Sandy Kaufax had 15 in Game 1 of the World Series in 1963. With the win the Dodgers will face either the St. Louis Cardinals or the San Diego Padres in the next round.
