World Series Game 1 Rematch: Kershaw And Keuchel To Duel In Pivotal Game 5

Published

on

For the third night in a row at Minute Maid Park, it’s time to play ball.

The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers have split the first four games of this year’s World Series, and first two in Houston.

Tonight, both teams will be relying on their ace. In a left-handed rematch of Game 1, Clayton Kershaw goes up against Dallas Keuchel.

Kershaw struck out 11 in seven strong innings in Game 1’s 3-1 Dodger victory, so we’ll see how he fares tonight on the road.

Keuchel was solid in the opening match, but simply couldn’t match Kershaw. Keuchel pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing three earned runs- all via home run, which was the difference.

In 11 regular season starts at home, Keuchel had a 2.26 ERA. So far in the playoffs, he’s 2-0 in two starts with a 0.71 ERA (1 ER, 12 2/3 IP)- definitely worth noting the home success he’s had as he prepares for the biggest start of his career.

As the best pitcher in the game, this is the moment Kershaw’s been waiting for. Having a chance to put his team up 3-2 in the World Series. And if he’s needed during a Game 7- you gotta believe he’ll be ready.

It’s all on the line tonight. Kershaw and Keuchel. Each game this series has induced captivating storylines, and tonight should be no different.

In the postseason, Kershaw’s 3-0 with a 2.96 ERA in four starts; Keuchel’s 2-2 with a 3.00 ERA in four starts himself.
