During MLB’s busy wild-card series, we’ll keep you updated right here on results, must-see moments and what’s next in each matchup.
Game 2: Los Angeles Dodgers 3, Milwaukee Brewers 0
What happened? You know the narrative by now. In October, Clayton Kershaw just isn’t himself. He doesn’t perform like a future Hall of Famer or the best pitcher on the planet. While that oversimplifies things a bit, the fact is there is a Good Clayton Kershaw and Bad Clayton Kershaw in the postseason.
No doubt which one we saw Thursday. It was Best Clayton Kershaw.
It was only the first round, so this isn’t the grand Kershaw redemption story, but it was Kershaw and the Dodgers taking care of business. Kershaw threw eight shutout innings, striking out 13 as the Dodgers beat the Brewers 3-0 to sweep the NL wild-card series and move on to the next round.
