Dodgers headed to St. Louis for start of NLCS
The Dodgers worked out Wednesday just as the decisive Game 5 between Pittsburgh and St. Louis began. The team went through hitting sets with the game shown on the stadium’s video boards, although there was no noticeable reaction as it progressed.
With the Cardinals winning 6-1, the Dodgers boarded buses to the airport for a flight to St. Louis.
“They’re not going down easy,” manager Don Mattingly said before the Cardinals won. “We felt like they were the best team in that division. They’re a good mix of everything.”
If the Pirates had won, the Dodgers would have unpacked their suitcases to stay home for the start of the series Friday.
The team hopes the layoff will benefit rookie pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, who struggled in Game 3 against Atlanta, giving up four runs and six hits over three innings.
“I felt he was a little nervous the other day,” Mattingly said. “He did some things that he doesn’t usually do.”
Ryu has said he isn’t injured, but the left-hander’s performance wasn’t as solid as what he showed during the regular season.
“He claims he felt fine and he continues to say he had no type of injury,” general manager Ned Colletti said. “Everybody can have a bad start from time to time.”
“I still have to sleep tonight to see if it responds tomorrow,” Ethier said. “It feels good.”
Hanley Ramirez got some rest for a bad back that has slowed him at shortstop, but not at the plate.
