2018 Senior League Division Championship Game 2: Braves @ Dodgers

From 2 teams I have some admiration for to 2 teams I don’t like at all. Braves / Dodgers resumes with the Dodgers leading the Braves 1 – 0.

Tonight the Dodgers send Clayton Kershaw (L, 9 – 5, 2.73 ERA) to face Aníbal Sánchez (R, 7 – 6, 2.83 ERA) of the Braves. Kershaw was nearly flawless in last year’s post-Season going 3 – 0 while allowing only 14 Runs, 8 Home Runs, and issuing 10 Walks for an ERA of 3.74 (yeah, those are unimpressive numbers but he got the Ws). He relies on Fastballs and Sliders with the occasional Curve.

Sánchez hasn’t pitched in the post-Season since 2014 when he had 2 Innings of work for the Tigers but put up nothing but Zeros. He throws nothing but junk with Changeups and Cutters being favored but Curves and Sliders contributing. His Fastball averages 91 mph.
