Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

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.


Kershaw leaves the bases loaded

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
