Prince goes face down

The celebration of winning Game 2 of the ALDS didn't start off great for Prince Fielder, his attempt to climb the dugout fence ended with him tumbling to the ground.

Don Mattingly is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't with Clayton Kershaw and the seventh inning in the post-season. He was criticized for leaving him out there too long against the St. Louis Cardinals in previous Octobers. Now, he brings in Pedro Baez and he gives up a two-run single to David Wright.

Jacob deGrom outdueled Clayton Kershaw on Friday night, tossing seven scoreless innings. De Grom struck out 13 in the process. That matches the smost in franchise history in a postseason. Tom Seaver in the 1973 NLCS fanned 13, too.

Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN

12 Ks for Jacob deGrom -- one shy of matching Tom Seaver's franchise postseason record. And Chase Utley to pinch hit.

Kershaw leaves the bases loaded

Clayton Kershaw went 6 2/3 innings, giving up 4 hits, 1 run, 4 BBs and striking out 11, the three runners left on base are his responsibility and Pedro Baez will come in for the Dodgers. Mets have the 1-0 edge. Follow live

Greinke/Syndergaard is gonna be great, but I was oddly pumped to watch this matchup. Just a pitching clinic

David Schoenfield @dschoenfield

The year he got drafted, Jacob deGrom had a 4.48 ERA at Stetson with just 56 K's in 86 IP. Kudos to Mets scouts and player development.

Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN

Eleven strikeouts for Jacob deGrom. Only Tom Seaver has thrown more in a postseason game for the Mets.

Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Both pitchers had very quick innings, so it looks like this may not be the bullpen game we were starting to expect

Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Clayton Kershaw and Jacob deGrom have combined for 18 strikeouts and we're in the top of the fifth.

Baseball Tonight @BBTN

Clayton Kershaw and Jacob deGrom both have 8 K in 4 IP. Got to love a good ol' fashion pitchers' duel!

Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Clayton Kershaw hit a drive to the warning track, but Yoenis Cespedes tracked it down to save two runs. Still 2-0 #Mets

Mendoza happy to be broadcasting pioneer
