The Los Angeles Dodgers breezed by the St. Louis Cardinals last Saturday to win the National League West Division Series with a three game sweep. After a lot of champagne celebrating and several days off, some are wondering if the Dodgers will still have that winning spark tonight, when they play game one of the National League Champion Series against the Philadelphia Phillies.
I think Dodger Matt Kemp has the best answer to that on his blog:”It’s time to play baseball. We had four days off to get our legs under us. We were still working hard, lifting weights, taking batting practice in the cage, watching video. Everything we had to do to prepare for the games. We’re excited and ready to go.”
This is the second straight year that the Dodgers and Phillies will be battling it out for the National League Pennant. Game one is 5 p.m this evening at Dodger Stadium. Also, Game two is tomorrow, 1 p.m. at Dodger Stadium. The Dodger organization is encouraging fans to arrive early and carpool when they can. Go Dodgers!!!
