Ramirez, Jay not in lineups for Game 6 of NLCS
Question of the Day
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Hanley Ramirez was not in the Los Angeles Dodgers starting lineup for Game 6 of the NL championship series Friday night, hindered by a rib injury sustained when he was hit by a pitch in the series opener.
Manager Mike Matheny noted he often loads his lineup with right-handed hitters against difficult lefties. Although the Cardinals were 3-0 in three starts against Kershaw coming in, they were just 19-23 against left-handers.
Kershaw held left-handed hitters to a .165 average in the regular season. He allowed an unearned run over six innings in a 1-0 Game 1 loss.
Mattingly said it was possible Ramirez would be available to pinch hit. He had anticipated Ramirez batting cleanup, but moved Yasiel Puig into that slot.
“I expected he’d be a little better,” Mattingly said. “Maybe with the lack of activity it’s gotten stiffer and tighter. He feels worse today than he did yesterday.”
Shane Robinson got his first start of the postseason in place of Jay, batting seventh and playing center field. Robinson’s pinch homer in Game 4 was his first hit of this postseason and Matheny noted “he plays a plus defense.”
