LOS ANGELES — As pitching matchups go , it would be hard to tilt the scales any more in one direction than they will be when the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles .The Padres will go with right-hander Brett Kennedy and his three career starts. The Dodgers will counter with Clayton Kershaw and his three Cy Young Awards.Kennedy (0-2, 8.36 ERA) has yet to win his first major league game, although he finally looks to be getting comfortable with his surroundings. After getting crushed for a combined 11 runs on 20 hits over his first two big league starts, Kennedy held the Arizona Diamondbacks to two runs on six hits over five innings Sunday.Article continues below ...Without a blazing fastball to work with, Kennedy has to rely on pinpoint control. Even though he was better in his start against the Diamondbacks, he did issue three walks. He will now face a Dodgers team that typically is disciplined when it comes to the strike zone.“He definitely threw the ball better; I thought his secondary stuff was better last time out,” Padres manager Andy Green said about Kennedy. “(The Dodgers) team will be a real challenge for him. They will load (the lineup) down with lefties and he’s going to have to execute to pitch well against them. I look forward to him rising up to meet that challenge, but it takes a while for some guys to get their footing in the big leagues and he’s starting to find it.”Pitching opposite Kershaw could present an intimidation factor, although Kennedy already has dealt with pitching against an ace. Zack Greinke was the Diamondbacks’ pitcher when Kennedy last took the mound.Meeting Kershaw at Dodger Stadium Bo Jackson Jersey , though, is a different level entirely. And Kershaw (6-5, 2.40) has been as good as ever lately, going unbeaten over his last five starts with a 1.82 ERA over 34 2/3 innings in that stretch.Kershaw last lost a game on July 21, and even then he gave up just one earned run. The defense let him down to the tune of three unearned runs that day against the Brewers. Since June 23, when Kershaw returned from his second stint on the disabled list, he is 5-1 with a 2.14 ERA.Add to the mix an increased sense of urgency from Kershaw and the Padres figure to be in a tough spot Saturday.“I don’t know how many games we’ve got left, but it’s now or never,” Kershaw said Luis Aparicio Jersey , according to “We better start playing, we better get good.”Kershaw is 18-6 with a 1.89 ERA in 33 career starts against San Diego, and he pitched six scoreless innings in his only start against the Padres this season.The Dodgers’ inconsistent offense roared back to life Friday in an 11-1 victory over the Padres, with Chris Taylor, Justin Turner and Max Muncy hitting home runs. Muncy moved one home run away from No. 30 on the season.The victory helped the Dodgers gain a game on the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks as they moved 3 1/2 games out of the division’s top spot. The Dodgers also moved 2 1/2 games behind the second-place Colorado Rockies. Cody Bellinger came through with a pair of clutch hits in the NLCS and was named as the series MVP after the Dodgers clinched a second consecutive trip to the World Series."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 2019 Spring TrainingProspectsCommentaryNews and Notes2018 NLCS: Dodgers vs BrewersDodgers Postgame ReactionAwardsCody Bellinger named NLCS MVP for DodgersNew,484commentsByRyan Walton@RyanWaltonSBNOct 20, 2018,9:33pm PDTShareTweetShareShareCody Bellinger named NLCS MVP for DodgersPool Photo-USA TODAY SportsCody Bellinger came through in the clutch for the Dodgers in the latter part of the NLCS. A game-winning hit in the 13th inning at Dodger Stadium Tuesday and a go-ahead homer in Game 7 helped put the Dodgers back in the World Series for the second straight year.After the Dodgers took care of the Brewers with a 5-1 win at Miller Park Saturday, Bellinger was named NLCS MVP.The 23-year-old struggled to break through in the first seven games of the postseason , going 1-for-21 before Game 4. After making a huge catch in the 10th inning, Bellinger came to the plate in the 13th with Manny Machado on second. A base hit through the right side of the infield sent the teams home tied.“It feels unbelievable,” Bellinger told media after the game. “All postseason I felt fairly good. I wasn’t seeing any results. And luckily for me I’ve, got a lot of veterans on this team. They said stick with the process and the results will come. And that’s exactly what I did and it showed.”It was dramatic for the Dodgers who would have been down 3-1 in the series had they not won that game.In Game 7, Bellinger crushed a two-run homer to take the momentum back from a wild Miller Park. The Dodgers rode that momentum all the way back to the Fall classic.Los Angeles will arrive in Boston this next week to start the World Series against the Red Sox on Tuesday night.
