Dodgers News: Tony Gonsolin Announced as Game 3 Starter

The Dodgers lost game two to the Padres and turned this NLDS into a series. Clayton Kershaw did not put together the best start he could have, admittedly, but owned up to putting his team in a less-than-ideal spot.

With the series evened up at 1 and 1, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, announced game three’s starting pitcher.

Yes, the Cat Man will get the ball on Friday in San Diego facing Padre left-hander Blake Snell.

Gonsolin missed 40 games between August and September while dealing with a forearm strain. He ultimately made one short start back with the club in the final week of the season going just two innings in the outing against the Rockies.

Over the course of the season, the 28-year-old right-hander was electric for the Dodgers. In 24 starts, he posted a career-best 2.14 ERA over 130.1 innings pitched. His ERA was actually a shade better than that of teammate and NL ERA leader Julio Urias who ended his season with a 2.16 to take the ERA title. Gonsolin went 16-1 in 2022, earning the first All-Star berth of his career.

Friday’s game three will be on FS1 with first pitch at 5:37 PM PT.

They baby their pitchers like their arms are made of crystal, yet they are always hurt? They lead the league in ERA yet in game 3 of a playoff series tied at 1-1 it’s going to be a bullpen game?
