Steven Matz may have only six games in the major leagues on his resume, but he does have championship-clinching experience. In fact, Matz started his team’s clincher each of the last two postseasons in the minors. He took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in Double-A Binghamton's Eastern League championship clincher in 2014. Matz opposes Clayton Kershaw in Game 4 on Tuesday night at Citi Field.
