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."

Setup man Tyler Clippard’s struggles to close the regular season continued into the playoffs. Clippard surrendered an RBI single to Adrian Gonzalez in the eighth as the Dodgers got on the scoreboard. Clippard had a 7.11 ERA in his final 12 regular-season appearances, which prompted manager Terry Collins to at least consider having Addison Reed become the primary setup man in the NLDS. The manager opted to stick with Clippard in Game 1, but that might not be the case the next time.

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.
