Game #3: Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Playoffs by chinmusic on Sunday 18 October 2009 at 8:32 am

The Dodgers are going with Hiroki Kuroda against Cliff Lee of the Phillies. Kuroda did not pitch in the first round of the playoffs due to injury so the Dodgers probably just want five good innings out of him. He started 1 game against the Phillies this season and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP as he worked six scoreless innings. Chase Utley (2 for 7, 2B, RBI) and Jayson Werth (2 for 7, 2B) are the only two Phillies with more than 1 hit against Kuroda in his two seasons in the majors. Cliff Lee has been outstanding in the post season for the Phillies so far. He has started 2 games in which he is 1-0 with a 1.10 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. He has not pitched against the Dodgers in his career but that usually is a advantage for the pitcher. Another low scoring game is likely in store for the Phillies and Dodgers
