Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Thursday's game that Clayton Kershaw would start Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

The Dodgers could give Kershaw extra rest by using him in Games 2 and 6, but they'd have more flexibility in how they'd use him over the rest of the series by giving him the ball in Game 1. It's doubtful that they'll try pitching in Game 4 on three days' rest, but using him in Game 5 would allow him to potentially pitch in relief in Game 7. Roberts didn't talk about the rest of the rotation, but it seems likely that Yu Darvish will pitch in Game 2, followed by Rich Hill and Alex Wood.

The Dodgers expect Corey Seager to be ready to go in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

Seager didn't play in the NLCS because of a back strain. His return could push Charlie Culberson off the roster, even though Culberson played well in the NLCS. An alternative would be to drop Joc Pederson, since Chris Taylor is likely to go back to playing center field anyway.

Kiké Hernandez hit three homers and drove in seven runs Thursday as the Dodgers crushed the Cubs 11-1 to win Game 5 of the NLCS and advance to the World Series.

Hernandez had a solo homer in the second, a grand slam to break the game open in the third and then a two-run shot to punctuate his night in the ninth. He became the first player to hit three homers in a postseason game since... well, since Jose Altuve two weeks ago against the Red Sox. However, he's just the fifth player ever to knock in seven runs and the first National Leaguer ever. The last American Leaguer was Boston's Troy O'Leary in the 1999 ALDS. He's the first player with three homers and seven RBI in a postseason game.

Clayton Kershaw pitched six innings of one-run ball as the Dodgers closed out the NLCS on Thursday.

It might have been interesting to see if Kershaw would have stayed in a 2-1 game tonight, given that the seventh has been his danger inning. However, with the Dodgers up 9-1, there was no reason to keep him in past the sixth, even if he was at just 89 pitches. Kershaw now has a 3.63 ERA in his three starts this October. The Dodgers will have the option of bringing him back for Game 1 of the World Series on normal rest, though it might make more sense to go with Yu Darvish then and set up Kershaw for Games 2 and 6.

Jose Quintana was charged with six runs in two-plus innings Thursday in losing to the Dodgers.

Quintana allowed singles runs in the first and second innings before allowing four straight to reach to begin the third. Hector Rondon -- a surprising choice with the season on the line -- took over and gave up a grand slam to the second batter he faced, essentially ending this one early. Quintana pitched well in his previous two postseason starts (three runs -- two earned -- in 11 1/3 innings), so he shouldn't go down as the goat here.
