In the AL Division Series, the Sox clobbered veteran southpaws J.A. Happ and CC Sabathia.An argument can be made that Boston hasn’t faced a left-handed starter equal to or better than Clayton Kershaw or Hyun-Jin Ryu in these playoffs. They’ll put that idea to the test quickly: Kershaw starts Game 1 and Ryu starts Game 2.Game 1 pits a pair of seven-time All-Stars against each other in Kershaw and Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Kershaw pitched the ninth inning (15 pitches) of Game 7 of the NLCS on Saturday night in Milwaukee, while Sale comes into the opener on nine days of rest. (See lineups for both teams below)Sale, who saw limited duty while battling shoulder inflammation issues from late July through the end of the regular season, made 11 starts on five or more days of rest during the regular season, going 6-2 with a 1.41 ERA.center_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img
