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. Kershaw will make his third career postseason start on three days’ rest. He went 0-1 with a 2.24 ERA in the previous two, while throwing 102 and 91 pitches. He went six innings each time.
