first_img Whicker: Dodgers extend themselves to extend it to Game 7 “It’s never easy against him,” Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said. “We were just grinding away, trying to find a way to get guys on base, trying to get some traffic against him.”Verlander finally cracked in the sixth inning – as he had in Game 2. Austin Barnes singled to start the inning, bringing up Chase Utley.Utley has always been willing to take a ball to a body part in exchange for a base. So he did, standing stoically as a 90-mph cutter landed short of home plate and bounced off his right leg.It might be the most important hit by pitch in franchise history.Chris Taylor came up with two on and none out and fought off a 97-mph fastball up and in, dropping it down the right-field line for a game-tying RBI double.“I was just focused on staying short and finding a way to put the ball in play,” Taylor said. “He’s got electric stuff – that fastball up and a really good slider. So I wanted to be as short as possible, not try to do too much or overswing. And find a way to get the bat on the ball and hope for the best.”Seager followed with a fly ball that looked a lot like the two-run home run he hit off Verlander in Game 2 – except the temperature has dropped 30 degrees in Southern California since then. The ball dropped into right fielder Josh Reddick’s glove at the base of the wall, deep enough for Utley to trot home with the go-ahead run.The counting began immediately.Roberts has turned Hill into a situational lefty during the postseason. That situation has been limited to the first two times through the order. In four postseason starts, Hill has faced just three batters for a third plate appearance in the same game.Hill did pitch into the fifth inning this time. But Roberts pulled him with the bases loaded and two outs. One of Sunday night’s punching bags, Brandon Morrow, came in to get the third out and two more in the sixth inning. Tony Watson got the next one.Handed the lead, Watson walked the first batter in the seventh and Roberts went to Kenta Maeda.Maeda got through the seventh, retiring Jose Altuve (who hit a three-run home run off him in Game 5) to end the inning. In the bottom of the inning, Joc Pederson – forgotten in Triple-A in August and left off the postseason roster for the first round – bought the flagging bullpen some insurance with his third home run of the Series, bounding around the bases in a reprise of his Game 5 “You like that” moment.

Pederson celebrates after his HR gives Dodgers 3-1 lead LOS ANGELES — After 29 years, what’s another day?Pushed to the brink of elimination by a draining loss in Game 5 that left their bullpen shell-shocked and facing a Justin Verlander unbeaten in his new uniform, the Dodgers did what has become standard in this World Series – they took hold of the wheel and spun it back around.Verlander had a one-hit shutout going when the Dodgers rallied for two runs in the sixth inning of Game 6 on Tuesday night then white-knuckled it through nine outs from their exhausted bullpen, holding on for a 3-1 victory that forced a Game 7 on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium.It will be the first World Series Game 7 ever played at the 55-year-old stadium.

We’re looking forward to it, for sure,” Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager said of Game 7. “All along it’s been, ‘Gotta win a series.’ Now it comes down to ‘Gotta win a game.’”This entire Series has been fun – the kind of fun a kid has speed-eating his Halloween haul then waking up the next morning still humming from the sugar rush and unable to concentrate at school.“This is when you’re a young kid and you’re kind of trying to play through all the heroes and heroics and talking about a Game 7 in the World Series,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “And here we are.”For five innings, it didn’t look like the Dodgers would live to play another day. Whatever slick-ball sorcery Major League Baseball tried to pull, it didn’t affect Verlander. He retired 15 of the first 16 Dodgers batters, allowing a second-inning single to Yasiel Puig and striking out eight.

You kind of black out in a situation like that,” Pederson said. “So I’m going to have to rewatch it to see what I did.”With six outs to get, the Dodgers’ bullpen was crowded. Starters Alex Wood and Clayton Kershaw had volunteered for duty. And Roberts said before the game his heavily-worked closer was probably reduced to “a three-out situation” in Game 6.“A three-out situation” is this year’s “absolutely not” – he brought in Kenley Jansen to start the eighth.“I felt good,” Jansen said. “I told him I was ready. … I didn’t have that conversation with him today (about being limited to three outs). He knows I’ll do whatever he asks. I know he’ll take care of me.“Listen, I don’t want to be a hero or anything, but there’s no tomorrow. … I didn’t feel it (fatigue). The adrenaline’s so high, playing for your team, your city, in Dodger Stadium. You’re fighting for tomorrow.”Jansen has pitched in 12 of the Dodgers’ 15 games this postseason, 13-2/3 innings and 190 pitches before Wednesday – and he had allowed runs in his previous three appearances in this Series, blowing a save in Game 2 and taking a loss in Game 5.Jansen put his foot down this time, retiring the final six Astros drama-free.But what does that leave for Game 7?“I’ll go nine,” Jansen said, failing to specify innings or outs. “Whatever they need me to do.”last_img read more
