WORLD SERIES GAME 1 POST-MORTEM
Dodgers 3, Astros 1
With an amorphous blob of a strike zone, a pitcher like Kershaw dealing, and Justin Turner reaching up and sending a chest-high Keuchel pitch just over the left field fence, you kind of just throw up your hands and move on because it clearly wasn’t in the cards tonight. I bet Springer would like one or two of his ABs back, though.
Really, outside of just one pitch – his first of the game – Keuchel pitched a great game and got a lot of help from his defense, who turned three double plays. He just got burned on the aforementioned high pitch to Turner while Kershaw and Friends outdueled him. If there’s a positive sign, though, it’s that Peacock and Devenski both turned in scoreless outings, with Devenski in particular looking on point.
