Dodgers to start Clayton Kershaw in NLDS Game 4 vs. Braves
Kershaw will get the nod instead of Ricky Nolasco. Kershaw is pitching on three days rest for the second time in his career.
The Dodgers lead the series two games to one after winning Game 3 last night.
“Whatever decision they make is going to be the best decision for the team,” Nolasco told the Dodgers’ official website before the decision was made to start Kershaw. “So I’m with whatever. They’re the ones who get paid to make those decisions. So I’ll be here ready to take the ball whenever they ask me to pitch.”
Kershaw dominated the Braves in Game 1 of the series, pitching seven innings, giving up one run on three hits while striking out 12.
