Clayton Kershaw on pitch counts

Clayton Kershaw threw 124 pitches, the third highest total of his career, in the Dodgers 6-1 win in Game 1 of the NLDS in Atlanta.

“It’s the postseason. You can kind of throw pitch counts out the window,” Kershaw told Craig Sager on the TBS broadcast after the game. “This is what you get taken out early for earlier in the season, for games like this.”

Maybe that’s true, but Kershaw went 0-2 with a 6.30 ERA in his next two starts against the Cardinals in the NLCS. Coincidence?
