The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Cy Young candidate couldn’t get it done in Game 1, as Clayton Kershaw was out-dueled by Jacob deGrom, and the New York Mets earned a 3-1 victory to take the 1-0 lead in the NLDS.
Fortunately for L.A., it has another Cy Young candidate waiting for Game 2.
Zack Greinke has been about as close to unhittable as it gets in 2015, going 19-3 and leading the majors in ERA (1.66) , ERA+ (225) and WHIP (0.844). In two starts against the Mets, he allowed just two earned runs in 14 innings.
Opposing Greinke will be rookie Noah Syndergaard, who boasts a 3.24 ERA and 1.047 WHIP with 166 strikeouts in 150.0 frames. The lack of postseason experience may be something to keep an eye on for the 23-year-old, but that certainly didn’t affect deGrom on Friday night.
The Dodgers can’t really afford to lose this one, as road teams that win the first two games of a five-game series have advanced 93 percent of the time. Also, Matt Harvey, who has been electric at home, is waiting in Game 3.
First pitch is scheduled for Saturday at 9:07 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on TBS. If you can’t get to a television, here’s how to watch online or on mobile:
