Los Angeles Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers, Game 1 (7:09 CT, FS1)

Everyone who thought Giovany Gonzalez would be starting Game 1 of a League Championship Series, raise your hands. You know the Milwaukee Brewers are feeling confident when they’re trotting out a guy who didn’t throw a pitch in the NLDS to start against the fearsome Los Angeles Dodgers offense. Clayton Kershaw resumes his No. 1 slot for the Dodgers, so good luck with that, Brewers.

Since the start of September, the Milwaukee bullpen has an ERA of 1.89, so if the Dodgers are going to score in Game 1, best do it against Gio.
