He was questioned by the mlb global fan base when he pulled kershaw, but, it turned out to be the golden plan to wheel his team to the lead, and 1 victory away from the WORLD SERIES TROPHY.
Clayton Kershaw earned the victory to improve to 13-12 in postseason play. The left-hander allowed two runs on five hits with two walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings while also setting the all-time record for strikeouts in the playoffs, surpassing Justin Verlander.
After Kenley Jansen’s implosion to end Saturday’s Game 4 loss, the Dodgers summoned Blake Treinen for the successful save attempt. The righty allowed a leadoff hit to Manuel Margot but stranded him at first with a pair of strikeouts and one flyout.
David Ray Roberts (born May 31, 1972) is an American professional baseball manager and former outfielder who is the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball (MLB). He played for five MLB teams over a ten-year career and then coached for the San Diego Padres before being named Dodgers manager in 2016. Although he played for the Boston Red Sox for only part of one season, his most notable achievement as a player was a key stolen base in the 2004 ALCS that ignited the Red Sox’s drive to their historic championship that year. Roberts batted and threw left-handed.
The son of a Japanese mother and African American father, Roberts became the first manager of Asian heritage to lead a team to the World Series in 2017, when the Dodgers captured the National League pennant. He also led the Dodgers to the World Series in 2018 and 2020, winning in the latter year. Roberts is both the first manager of Asian heritage and second African American manager to lead a team to a World Series title.
