The Los Angeles Dodgers earned the top seed in the National League for the 2017 postseason. They will play the winner of the NL Wild Card Game between the Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The NLDS series starts Friday and it will be televised by TBS. The start time and pitching matchups for Game 1 haven’t yet been announced by the Dodgers, and likely won’t until we find out who the NL Wild Card winner is. However, Clayton Kershaw will in all likelihood get the start for L.A.
The one-game playoff between the Rockies and D-Backs is scheduled to start at 7:08 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, October 4.
The Dodgers just completed a historic regular season, compiling the best record in the MLB by going 103-58 overall. The Dodgers claimed their fifth-straight National League West title during the season, and they were led by a potent offense and stellar pitching.
Justin Turner has led the Dodgers at the plate with a .321 batting average, while rookie sensation Cody Bellinger has exceeded expectations. He’s led the team with 94 RBIs, 39 home runs and 86 runs scored while batting .273.
On the mound, Kershaw has been the Dodgers’ ace all year long. In 26 starts, Kershaw’s gone 18-4 with a 2.21 ERA and 200 strikeouts. Alex Wood has also helped out with a 15-3 record in 24 starts to go with a 2.71 ERA and 150 strikeouts.
