In their third straight trip to the National League Championship Series, the Dodgers will be seeking a second consecutive berth in the World Series. They just need to go through the red-hot Brewers in this best-of-seven matchup to accomplish that goal.
That effort begins tonight in Game 1 with Kershaw on the mound, a name that used to elicit a wide range of emotions whenever he would suit up for a postseason start.
