What was all that 2% talk?
Matt
11:27
Does LA fool us and bring in Kershaw to close out the 9th maybe?
Dave Cameron
11:27
No. Not after throwing 110 on three days rest.
Election 2016!

Great Series or Greatest Series?
Dave Cameron

Pretty fun!

Seriously. Who pitches the 9th for LA tonight ?
Dave Cameron
11:28
Baez, probably
If Jansen runs out of gas
Matt
11:29
9 out save! When was the last time that happened in a non-blowout?
Dave Cameron
11:29
Feel like maybe Rivera did it in October once?
@FlippedBats
11:29
i doubt he goes all 9
Dave Cameron
11:29
I would bet it depends on pitch count. They won't run him up past 40-45 pitches.

Rivera pitched 3 against the Sox in game 7, 2013 (Aaron Boone). But it wasn't a save.

That's actually real nice for Ross to be able to get from 1st to 3rd.
brendan

Last non-blowout save by a closer to go 3 innings was Todd Worrell, game 3 of 87 NLCS against Giants, per BRef.

11:34
no matter what happens, still can't believe roberts brought jansen in this early. glad to see it.
Nate
11:35
He's not gonna go all 3 innings guys
Jart

I've watched a lot of Dodger games this year, and I don't think I've seen the cutter move that much.
AJ
11:35
Got away with one there!
Werth
11:35
Jansen doesn't have it tonight
5 Run Homer

AJ
