I must say the Dodgers looked shabby last night. I’m talking 1986 Sox shabby with the caveat that they were never really in the game and the Sox were one strike away, so in fact much worse. Ryu was chased (and is now useless) in 3, 5 Runs down. They used 6 Relievers, none for more than an Inning and including a Starter, Rich Hill, to close it out. Miley lasted for 4.1 Innings and allowed 2 Runs on 5 Hits, a Home Run, and 2 Walks. Hader rode the pine, didn’t need him at all.
Brewers will start Jhoulys Chacín (R, 15 – 6, 3.50 ERA). In his last outing in the League Championship he went for 5.1 scoreless Innings surrendering not a Hit, not a Walk… nothing. He throws Fastballs and Sliders about equally.
The Dodgers will trot out Walker Buehler (R, 8 – 5, 2.62 ERA) for what I feel is their final appearance this year. Previously in the League Championship he has lost a game, lasting 7 Innings where he allowed 4 Runs on 6 Hits with 1 Home Run and a Walk for an ERA of 5.14. He throws Fastballs and a few Curves and Cutters.
See you in Yawkey Way (it used to be just Jersey Street).
