Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal believes the team failed Clayton Kershaw in its 6-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series.Grandal told reporters the Dodgers "let down" their ace Friday night."He's out on the mound competing as much as he possibly can , and we pretty much just let him down," Grandal said. "I think that's the biggest thing."Kershaw only made it through three innings against the Brewers. The three-time NL Cy Young winner allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks.On a night where few things went right early for the Dodgers, Grandal was particularly bad behind the plate.He allowed a passed ball that enabled Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich to advance in the third inning after surrendering a first-inning passed ball. He was also called for interference when his glove made contact with the bat of Jesus Aguilar, wiping out a terrific diving catch by first baseman David Freese that would have been the second out in the third.After Hernan Perez hit a sacrifice fly in the third Orlando Arcia Jersey , Grandal was charged with an error after a missed catch on Cody Bellinger's throw from center field.Kershaw's postseason struggles have been well-documented. The southpaw threw 74 pitches against the Brewers after needing just 85 to get through eight innings in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves. His career playoff ERA sits at 4.26 over 26 appearances. He owns a 2.39 ERA in 318 regular-season games. CHICAGO (AP) — Boston Red Sox left-hander David Price likely won’t make his next scheduled start, and the team remains unsure when ace lefty Chris Sale will return to the rotation.Manager Alex Cora said Price “most likely” will not take his turn in the rotation next week at Atlanta. He said Price still is sore and hasn’t thrown since he was struck on his pitching wrist by a line drive against Miami on Wednesday. He was examined by a hand specialist on Thursday.“I haven’t (sat) down with him yet, but (trainer) Brad (Pearson) told me he was still sore,” Cora said. “(He’s) feeling better Jonathan Villar Jersey , but I don’t think he’s gonna be ready for that one. So if he’s not ready for that one, we’ll push it back.”Price has bounced back after being limited to 11 starts last season because of an elbow injury. He is 14-6 with a 3.60 ERA in 26 outings.The Red Sox own the best record in the majors even though Sale hasn’t pitched since Aug. 12 because of mild inflammation in his pitching shoulder. But Cora thinks he will make a few starts before the playoffs.Sale — 12-4 with a 1.97 ERA — threw long toss and on flat ground Friday after playing catch the previous four days.“The way it’s going right now, whenever he gets on the mound, he’s gonna move fairly quick ,” Cora said. “Obviously we have to build him up, but … there’s not too (many) innings in the minor leagues. We’re gonna have to do it at the big-league level. We talk about it a little bit. I don’t want to get into details yet, obviously, because we are on a day-by-day basis with him. If everything goes right Jhoulys Chacin Jersey , he’ll be able to build up, and we’re gonna be very comfortable with him.”
