Saturday's MLB postseason schedule
- Game 2: Cubs at Cardinals, 5:37 p.m. ET (Cardinals lead NLDS series 1-0)
- Game 2: Mets at Dodgers, 9:07 p.m. ET (Mets lead NLDS series 1-0)
The Mets face Zack Greinke on Saturday night at his most dominant, and, on the eve of the start, Steve Wulf finds the Cy Young winner at his most revealing.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to have to win one of Clayton Kershaw's starts one of these Octobers or they're not going anywhere.
With four MLB playoff games packed into one Friday, there were plenty of standout performances. When the dust settled, two NL pitchers stood out.
Mets starter Jacob deGrom beat Clayton Kershaw at his own game Friday night. We look at the keys to his success.
Jacob deGrom struck out 13 over seven scoreless innings in his postseason debut and Daniel Murphy homered off Clayton Kershaw to help the Mets defeat the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS.
The plague of Octobers past resurfaced for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Mets in Game 1 of the NLDS, which went New York's way 3-1.
Dave Meyers, who led UCLA to the national title in 1975 in John Wooden's final season as coach, died Friday at 62 after battling cancer. Meyers averaged 18.3 points and 7.9 in his senior season for the Bruins, and later played four seasons for the Bucks after the Lakers dealt him as part of the trade for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Story
Don Mattingly said the Dodgers decided before the seventh inning, based on Clayton Kershaw's pitch count, that they wouldn't let him get beyond Curtis Granderson. He said David Wright "pumps on lefties pretty good."
Clayton Kershaw said his three walks in the seventh inning put him in no position to argue with Don Mattingly for taking him out with the bases loaded and two outs.
Max Domi had a goal and an assist in his NHL debut to help the Arizona Coyotes beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-1 on Friday night.
Jacob deGrom was fabulous, going 7 innings, striking out 13 and allowing 5 hits, a walk and no runs, as he out dueled Clayton Kershaw and gave the Mets the NLDS Game 1 win over the Dodgers. Box score
Adrian Gonzalez, the only Dodger to drive in a run tonight, had to be thrilled not to be facing Jacob deGrom. He had struck out in all three plate appearances off the young flame thrower, twice on upper-90's fastballs and once on an 87-mph change up. Coming in, he was 3-for-8 with two home runs off him.
Don Mattingly is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't with Clayton Kershaw and the seventh inning in the post-season. He was criticized for leaving him out there too long against the St. Louis Cardinals in previous Octobers. Now, he brings in Pedro Baez and he gives up a two-run single to David Wright.
Clayton Kershaw went 6 2/3 innings, giving up 4 hits, 1 run, 4 BBs and striking out 11, the three runners left on base are his responsibility and Pedro Baez will come in for the Dodgers. Mets have the 1-0 edge. Follow live
