Los Angeles Dodgers 1 – 0 Chicago Cubs
So much has been made about Clayton Kershaw’s inability to match his regular season success in the post-season. Tonight, Clayton shut down the haters. Kershaw pitched seven innings, allowing just two hits and one walk before giving way to Kenley Jansen who recorded the six-out save, striking out four.
Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo home run in the top of the second inning that stood as the games only run. With offense at a premium, Kershaw needed to be dominant and dominant he was. Perfect through four, he finally allowed back to back singles in the fifth, but was able to navigate his way out of the inning. After walking Rizzo in the seventh, he stayed in the game and retired the next three batters to escape the inning.
The series heads back to Los Angeles on Tuesday.
