LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers‘ curious starting pitching decision to open the National League Division Series suddenly looks like a load of trouble for the Atlanta Braves.Clayton Kershaw Albert Pujols Jersey , who did not start Game 1 on Thursday despite being on regular rest, is scheduled to start Game 2 on Friday at Dodger Stadium, one day after Hyun-Jin Ryu set the tone with seven strong innings in a 6-0 victory over the Braves.It remains very early in the 2018 postseason, but the Dodgers’ decision to be less reliant on Kershaw for October glory already seems to be paying dividends.Article continues below ...And even though Kershaw is less overpowering than he has been in the past, with a strikeout total lower than his innings pitched for the first time since 2013, he has been a handful when getting an extra day of rest like he will have Friday.When the left-hander gets five days of rest or more this season http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-stan-musial-jersey , he has a 2.48 ERA and 9.2 strikeouts per inning. On a regular four days of rest, he has a 3.21 ERA and 7.6 strikeouts per nine innings.Kershaw (9-5, 2.73 ERA), who said he accepts the Dodgers’ pitching decision, downplayed the concept that he will have extra incentive this postseason because he was not named the Game 1 starter.“I don’t really need to prove myself to anybody,” Kershaw said. “I think I just … I want my teammates to want me out there. I think that’s the biggest thing. Hyun-Jin has had a great season and he’s pitched really well for us … and I’ll get my turn (Friday).”Tasked with matching Kershaw pitch for pitch is Braves right-hander Anibal Sanchez (7-6 Roger Maris Jersey , 2.83), who has given up two earned runs or fewer in six of his last seven starts, including six scoreless innings in his regular-season finale Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies.Friday’s outing will be Sanchez’s first in the postseason since 2014 with the Detroit Tigers. In seven postseason appearances, he is 2-4 with a 2.79 ERA.It is the Dodgers hitters that Sanchez said he is most concerned with facing, not pitching against Kershaw.“You know what, most of the time I don’t think too much about the pitchers that I’m going to face http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-matt-carpenter-jersey ,” Sanchez said. “I just try to keep my mind on the hitters that I’m going to face against the Dodgers. I think they got a pretty good lineup. It’s no doubt how good Kershaw is and what he’s been doing for his whole career. But at the end, I don’t want to put that impression in my mind.”In Game 1 of the series, the Dodgers looked similar to what they have been all season. They hit three home runs in Game 1 after a season when they hit a club-record and NL-most 235. Two of the home runs came from left-handed hitters Joc Pederson and Max Muncy.The Dodgers also led the NL in walks this season and earned eight free passes Thursday.The Braves outhit the Dodgers 6-5 in Game 1, but were never in the contest. Now Sanchez has to face the Dodgers’ lefty-heavy lineup in Game 2. The Miami Marlins agreed to trade veteran reliever Brad Ziegler tothe Arizona Diamondbacksahead of Tuesday's 4 p.m. non-waiver deadline, USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported.The 38-year-old is1-5 with a3.98 ERA and 1.269 WHIPthis season. He's recorded10saves but was replaced byKyle Barraclough as the Marlins' closer.Ziegler also spent six years with the Diamondbacks from 2011 to 2016 and had a2.49 ERA in 348 appearances.The veteran righty is in the final year of a contract that's paying him $9 million in 2018. He struggled to start the 2018 season, but he has allowed just three earned runs in 29 appearances between June and July. The Diamondbacks will hope that trend continues during the stretch run.Earlier this year Tim McCarver Jersey , Ziegler began making an adjustment to his delivery in hopes of seeing better performance. He's been nearly lights out ever since, lowering his ERA more than three runs since the beginning of June. The return to form led to trade rumors with the Marlins well out of the playoff picture and Ziegler nearing the end of his career."I have no control over it, so you know, if it happens it happens," Ziegler said, per Mike Persakof the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "If not http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-lou-brock-jersey , I鈥檓 happy here. I like the guys here. I think we're starting to do something really good here, and I like being part of the beginning of it."Ziegler won't be under much pressure inArizona. It will likely look to him for some seventh- and eighth-inning work and didn't give up an elite prospect.As they make an attempt for a pennant push, though, adding Ziegler will likely be a boost for the Diamondbacks if he can keep up his recent strong performances.
