THURSDAY PLAYOFF VIOLATOR! ~ 6 STRAIGHT?
Washington vs. LA Dodgers,
10/03/2019 20:37 EDT,
Score: 0 - 6
Money Line: -165 LA Dodgers
I'm playing on LA. While the Nats are off an exciting comeback and on an impressive run, I expect it to come to an end here. Corbin gets the call and he was extremely shaky last time out. In fact, he served up three home runs, six runs overall, in just four innings. That game produced 17 runs. Many will be surprised to see Buehler instead of Kershaw, or Ryu. The Dodgers have faith in for good reason though. He's 6-1 with a 2.86 ERA and 0.89 WHIP on the season - much better than his road stats. He's also a dominant 11-1 with a 2.96 ERA and 0.97 WHIP when pitching during the evening. Again, much better than his daytime stats. You may recall the last time that Buehler was on the mound for a postseason game. That was Game 3 of last year's World Series. All he did was toss seven shutout innings. I think the excitement of the comeback and the subsequent cross-country trip will take a toll on the Nats and that they'll run out of gas here. Dodgers draw first blood.
