Last night, Clayton Kershaw received his first postseason win at Dodger Stadium against the Arizona Diamondbacks. His postseason career began in 2008 but it hasn't been as successful as he wanted it to be until 2015 where he has not lost since. Today's simulation will focus on if he has the same ability in the postseason as his regular season ability. We know what he is capable of there, so let's see if it translates here.
Z-Score: 38/200, or 19%
His ability in the playoffs is not different from his ability in the regular season, even though the numbers here are very close.
He may not look his greatest in the postseason, but Kershaw cleaned up his act in his past few outings. That's all that the Dodgers can ask for as they take a good shot at the World Series this year.
Watch them as they take on Arizona tonight at 9 pm ET.

Hi, I'm Jenna and I'm a sports fan! I've been avidly watching sports since 2011 because I found that by watching sports, I would be able to communicate with my dad and brother better. Ever since I got into sports, I've been able to enjoy myself more when I go to sporting events with my family.
