Kershaw: "You know what, it's probably dead even, to be honest. As good as Zack is and has been the whole year, deGrom has been the same."

Kershaw talks run support after Gm. 4 win

Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw on Justin Turner's 2-RBI double in the Dodgers' 3-run third inning: "It was huge. Any time you get runs like that early, get that quick three-spot against [Steve] Matz ... it felt good."

“We feel confident,” David Wright said about Game 5. “Jacob threw a great game out there last time."

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

David Wright said the biggest difference between Clayton Kershaw in the opener and this game was his ability to throw a curveball for a strike. Last time, the Mets could eliminate that pitch, which made Kershaw more hittable.

Justin Turner with big hit for Dodgers

Dodgers 3B Justin Turner took us through his decisive 2-RBI double down the left-field line in the third to help L.A. avoid elimination: "[Steven Matz] flipped a breaking ball up high over the plate and I put a good swing on it, and luckily enough kept it fair down the line.


Kershaw comes up big, L.A. forces Game 5

On three days' rest, Clayton Kershaw fanned eight over 7 innings to lead the Dodgers past the Mets in a 3-1 win and send the NLDS back to Los Angeles for a winner-takes-all Game 5.


Kershaw clutch when team needs him most

Clayton Kershaw is the first pitcher to go at least 7 innings on 3 days rest and win in a game in which his team could have been eliminated from the postseason since the Pirates' Tim Wakefield did it 23 years ago today against the Braves.

Cubs celebrate their division series win by jumping on the dugout. Hector Rondon sprays fans while Fernando Rodney gives his patented bow and arrow salute.

Kershaw after 7 playoff starts had the 2nd worst win pct of any pitcher with that many starts. Charlie Leibrandt (1-7). Huge W on short rest

The Mets and Dodgers are headed back to Dodger Stadium for a winner-take-all Game 5. In his first major league game in 19 days, rookie left-hander Steven Matz surrendered three runs in five innings. Meanwhile, Clayton Kershaw snapped a five-start postseason losing streak as the Dodgers avoided elimination with a 3-1 win against the Mets in Game 4 on Tuesday at Citi Field. Jacob deGrom will oppose Zack Greinke in L.A. on Thursday to determine which team will host the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday.
