The Dodgers' bats have gone cold in the postseason. Now they're facing playoff elimination
The Los Angeles Dodgers cobbled together a 100-win regular season against the odds, using a strong offense to compensate for a beat-up starting rotation
PHOENIX (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers cobbled together a 100-win regular season, using a strong offense to compensate for a banged-up starting rotation.
Time is running out for that formula to produce even one postseason win.
The Dodgers are down to their last chance in Game 3 of the NL Division Series, facing a 2-0 deficit against the Arizona Diamondbacks when the series resumes on Wednesday night.
Much has been made of L.A.'s bad starting pitching in the first two games — particularly Clayton Kershaw's debacle in Game 1 — but it's also true that the Dodgers' offense hasn't been doing much, either. Mookie Betts is 0 for 7 over the first two games while Max Muncy is 1 for 7 and Freddie Freeman is 1 for 6.
