Dodgers vs Giants: LA Clinches MLB 2014 NL West Pennant
It's been 158 games in the making but the perfect storm has arrived in Southern California. Playing in front of a sold-out crowd at home, with the best pitcher on the planet heading to hill, the Dodgers will clinch the National League West regular season pennant with a win over the San Francisco Giants tonight. There's going to be a celebration at Chavez Ravine - about two and half hours after the first pitch flies at 10:05 PM ET, on September 24, 2014, at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, CA.
Kershaw looks to match career high MLB win total
Aiming for their second straight NL West title Los Angeles, who were preseason chalk to win the 2014 MLB World Series, can do it in style in their own yard tonight. While few can forget the Dodgers taking a celebratory dip in the pool at Chase Field in Arizona after they clinched the division last season - it'll be even sweeter to cash in at home. A virtual lock to win the NL Cy Young and MVP awards, Clayton Kershaw (20-3 ERA 1.80) aims to match his career high win total of 21 here - a high water mark he first established during the 2011 MLB season. The man is a pitching machine and money - bet on it!
Trying to snatch one from The Claw is a giant task for San Francisco
In three starts vs San Fran this season, The Krushinator has posted a 2-0 record with a tiny 1.88 ERA. In two games played in San Francisco, Kershaw tossed a complete game three-hitter in a 5-0 Dodgers win on July 26 and then gave up just two runs in a pivotal 4-2 Los Angeles victory back on September 14. In the no decision contest, just his second start after a 44 day stint on the disabled list, The Claw pitched seven innings and gave up three runs on seven hits in a Dodgers 7-4 home loss that went ten innings. Add it all up and Kershaw has pitched 24 innings, allowing five runs on 17 hits, and he has recorded a ridiculous 25 strikeouts versus the Giants this season. Kershaw is the Ace of all Aces.
MLB Wagering Advice: An additional reason (should you need one) to ride the Kershaw Gravy Train tonight is RHP Tim Hudson heading to the hill for the Giants. This one time ace has been a gas can recently as Hudson has allowed 20 runs (18 earned) on 30 hits over just 16.1 innings pitched during four September starts. We'll take full advantage of Kershaw's final regular season outing and load up on Los Angeles with a 2200 unit run line wager at the sportsbetting.ag online sportsbook.
