We have two NLDS Game 1s today.


Two years ago, I went to Game 1 of the NLDS at Dodger Stadium. I had never been to a post season game before, and couldn’t find anyone to go with me, so I went by myself. I didn’t think anyone would notice or find it strange, but it was the first thing the two young guys who sat beside me commented on.

Clayton Kershaw gave up four home runs to the Diamondbacks, but the Dodgers won 9-5. Brandon Morrow got four outs in that game. You might remember he pitched in pretty much every game for the Dodgers that postseason.

Where were these prices two years ago?

Today, Josh Donaldson and the Braves will take on the St Louis Cardinals, and the wild card winning Nationals will face the Dodgers.

Here are the lineups for the first game. JD will bat cleanup.
