Tony Gonsolin will start. Dodgers are hopeful that Kershaw can start game 3 or 4.

This is a bummer for me as a dodger fan. I want so badly for him to perform well and get rid of this “choker” label.

But, you have to have depth to win a seven game series in this format. Gonsolin was going to have to pitch at some point. If the dodgers do lose, I guess you take solace in knowing that you haven’t burned through your two best starters.

I really don’t think it’s a must win for the dodgers, but I don’t want them to give up two wins to a really good Braves team. No matter who pitchers, the dodger aren’t going to win scoring only 1 run.

Go Blue!!

CAN'T CHOKE IF YOU DON'T PITCH!

Was looking forward to seeing him pitch.

This is gonna be a good series and if Kershaw can go still in game 3 or 4 it isn't too much of a blow. Gonselin is pretty good as well. As a Padre fan though the Dodgers aren't getting any sympathy from me...ha. We lost our top 2 guys for the entire series making it very difficult. Dodgers are so good though even having them they still might have beaten us but at least it definitely would've been more competitive.

Not looking good for the Dodgers so far...…..

No It's not, down 6-0 in the 6th inning here will be tough to come back from. I wouldn't put it past the Dodgers to do it with their offense but I'm not complaining if the Dodgers go down 2-0 in the series. Let's go Braves!
