Tweets Of The Night: Offense Wakes Up, Dodgers Get Back Into NLCS

The Dodgers are coming off another disappointing loss to the Cardinals in Game 2 of the NLCS. Clayton Kershaw was dominant on the , but the Dodgers were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and they lost 1-0. In the first two games of the NLCS, the Dodgers are 1-16 with runners in scoring position and Yasiel Puig is 0-10 with six strikeouts in the series.

Tonight, the Dodgers were back home and hoping the hometown crowd could rejuvenate their offense.  Hyun-Jin Ryu was on the mound  and he was hoping to give the Dodgers a better performance than his postseason debut. In Game 3 of the NLDS, Ryu tossed just three innings, allowing four runs and six hits before giving way to Chris Capuano.

The Cardinals countered with their ace, Adam Wainwright. He was good in his two starts in the NLDS, only allowing two earned runs in both games combined. During the regular season he had a 19-9 record with a 2.94 ERA, but Wainwright isn’t as dominant when he pitches on the road. In 17 starts this season outside Busch Stadium, Wainwright has a 3.36 ERA and is 1-2 with a 5.16 ERA in six career starts at Dodger Stadium.

After missing Game 2, Hanley Ramirez ended up starting at shortstop and batting third while Andre Ethier  also started the Game 3 in center field, hitting fifth.
