Dodgers look to avoid sweep in final game in Milwaukee

Dodgers Lineup

Clayton Kershaw-14-5 vs. Marco Estrada-3-7

the Brewers are emerging as one of the best teams in baseball. they have the best home record, have won 19 of their last 21, and have begun to run away with the NL central lead. this is the best team they have had since their world series year of 1982.
the Brewers are trying to sweep the four game series with the Dodgers. and young Righty Marco Estrada will be making a spot start for injured starter Chris Narveson.
the Dodgers have never seen Marco estrada before and other than he's right handed I don't know much about this guy. I do know that he is 3-7 with a 4.46 ERA, and has mostly pitched in relief this season.

Clayton Kershaw will be the big elephant in the room, trying to stop the Brewers win streak. Kershaw is looking for his 15th win of the year, and continues his run at the NL cy young award. kershaw has struggled in the past though against Milwaukee. he is 1-2 with a mere mortal 6.23 ERA. hell have his work cut out for him against this quality lineup. and well need to watch out for that fucker Braun, he's hit Kershaw too, to a tune of a .368 avg.

after the game the Dodgers continue their beer trip by going to Colorado where they'll play a three game series this weekend. pull up a chair Dodger fans, and watch a early brunch special! game four of Dodgers Brewers is on at 1110AM on Prime Ticket. enjoy Dodger fans, and well see you after the game.
