Dodgers lefthander Clayton Kershaw was scratched from today’s Game 2 start with back spasms, something that’s bothered him previously. It’s not clear whether or when he’ll be able to start in the NLCS.
This puts the Dodgers at a disadvantage, obviously. Their starting pitching was clearly superior to Atlanta’s; now, it might not be.
As always, we await developments.
Here’s all the info you’ll need for today’s games.
Braves lead series 1-0.
