What's This?

100713-NolascoRicky Nolasco and not Clayton Kershaw will start Game 4 of the NLDS Monday night as the Dodgers attempt to eliminate the Braves in the best-of-5 series.

Some felt that the team should have thrown in the Dodgers’ ace knowing that Zack Greinke could rise to the occasion and pitch in Game 5 Wednesday should a trip back to Atlanta have had to be made.

Then there is the doubt that Nolasco could give the Dodgers a decent effort, given his struggles of late.

In six September appearances he went 2-2 with a 6.66 ERA.

However, in his last four appearances he has allowed 17 runs in 13 innings, an 11.76 ERA.

He is currently scheduled to face off against Freddy Garcia at 6:37 p.m. on TBS.
