Game 3 will be a quick turnaround for the Los Angeles Dodgers as they take on the Washington Nationals at Chavez Ravine. A rained-out Game 2 of the National League Division Series was pushed from Saturday to Sunday in Washington. The series is currently tied at one a piece after the boys in blue finished behind 5-2. The Dodgers were up two runs andopportunities to score were plenty but the ball club failed to deliver. The team has been criticized for throwing it all away when it counts a.k.a. in the postseason. During the regular season, the team wassecond best in the majors when it came to on-base plus slugging (.924).The club went 0-for-5 with bases loaded on Sunday.

Not one, not two, but three of the at-bats had bases loaded with just one out. Switch-hitter, Yasmani Grandal, was on the plate for two of them and pitcher Rich Hill for the other. The Dodgers had other opportunities for some runs. Chase Utley and Howie Kendrick each had two-outs during the other two at-bats with bases loaded. According to ESPN, a team with a two-out situation with bases loaded scores 32 percent of the time.

Kenta Maeda looks to aidDodgers in game 3.

On the mound for the Dodgersin game 3 will be 28-year-old and right-handed pitcher Kenta Maeda. He’s a rookie in the big leagues but a veteran of Japanese baseball. Maeda was 16-19 with a 3.48 earned-run average and the only one in rotation to make all of his scheduled starts for the 182-game schedule.

His durability is there but one concern with Maeda starting is that he’s averaged just under 6 innings per start.
