Why Dodgers starters will be fresh and ready for World Series play

"And it gives the city something to rally around and gives people something to cheer for that otherwise may not have a lot to be hopeful for". Dodgers didn't seem to need him in that round, but they probably will in the WS.

The Astros will attempt to get back to even with their own ace Justin Verlander, another pitcher with superstar pedigree in Game 2 on Tuesday.

The Astros have never won the crown.

Teams normally keep their first pitch selections pretty quiet until the last second, and that was the case with the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Upton stirred up some controversy last year when she sent a tweet criticizing voters for not giving Verlander the AL Cy Young award.

These teams last met in 2015, when the Astros swept a three-game series at home.

Helped by a couple of home runs to take care of the offence, Kershaw left nothing to chance by performing right up to his highest standards. The weather will be a hot (sorry) topic, because it is absolutely scorching here.

In metered market ratings, the primetime 2017 World Series Game 1 scored a 10.2/17. The move paid off when he floated a ball into the first row of seats in the sixth. "I really hope they pull it off this time".

Verlander has been a picture of durability since joining the Astros at the end of August.

"That's a damn good team we just faced", A.J. Hinch said following the loss. "I'm OK with this'". Add in the typical struggles of lefties Josh Reddick and Brian McCann against same-sided pitchers, and you wind up with an Astros lineup with four favorable right-on-left matchups (Springer, Altuve, Correa, and Alex Bregman) amid five other hitters who struggle against lefties, or at least have this year.

"He's the spark plug", Turner said of Taylor.

Dodger management is "sort of talking through" other changes to the roster, including "how we're going to use the catchers", manager Dave Roberts said. Houston debuted as the Colt.45s as a National League expansion team in 1962, beat the Dodgers in a one-game playoff for the NL West championship in 1980 and eventually moved to the AL in 2013. The group ranked first among big-league rotations with a 3.39 ERA. "If you were that mentally focused, you'd just burn out".

Springer, one of the most consistent players for the Astros all season, hasn't had the best luck at the plate of late. The Astros won every game at Minute Maid Park, and the Yankees won every game in the Bronx.

On the list of potential MVP candidates, there are no shortage of stars to choose from.

Well now it's time for the big dance and, having been the best team in baseball for much of the punishing, 162-game regular season, the Dodgers are ready to make good on their promise. No Dodger has made more than Forsythe's nine plate appearances against Houston's Game 2 starter, Verlander, while Chase Utley is the only Dodger with an extra-base hit against him, a double from 2007.

"I feel normal, which is great", Kershaw said.

Gov. Brown said the wine selection he'd hand over would come from wineries in the Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino regions.

"It's just my sole focus even between innings is thinking about what I can do to execute and thinking about what pitches I should throw and what I've seen and what my instincts are telling me".
