It’s the spookiest game of the season for the Dodgers: Elimination games. After dropping two of three against the Astros in Houston, the Dodgers will fight to force a decisive Game 7 in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. However, they’ll have to go through Astros ace Justin Verlander, who has been a horse all postseason for A.J. Hinch. Verlander, undoubtedly, wants this series done tonight — it’s why he was brought on after all. In a series that has produced plenty of scoring, especially off of the home run ball, Verlander will try to stymie it.
For the Dodgers, Rich Hill is on to save the Dodgers season. The travel day may have given the bullpen a bit of rest, but there’s still a lot to be done. With Brandon Morrow looking exhausted and Kenley Jansen look like less than his stellar self, the Dodgers may need to lean on Hill for longer than the four-five innings they’ve been using him for (much to his chagrin). The veteran will undoubtedly want to make his last start of the season count, and if he can work deep in the game it would go a long way for manager Dave Roberts.
