Dodgers vs Cardinals: Game 1

Postseason baseball means excellent pitching matchups, and off the bat we see that the Dodgers were only able to pull off two hits in this one. They belonged to Hanley Ramirez and Mark Ellis, respectively. This meant that Zack Grienke’s good start was all for naught, as he finished with 7 strong innings, giving up only 2 hits, 1 ER, 1 walk and striking out 6.

The offense all around was fairly weak, resulting in one extra base hit between the teams. That belonged to Yadier Molina, who started off the 2nd inning with a double and eventually came around to score on what would be the winning run. He finished 1-3, as did David Freese, who brought Molina in to score. This means that Joe Kelly gets the win, finishing 6.1 innings giving up a hit, a walk, 0 runs and getting 6 K’s.
