Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN

Eleven strikeouts for Jacob deGrom. Only Tom Seaver has thrown more in a postseason game for the Mets.

Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Both pitchers had very quick innings, so it looks like this may not be the bullpen game we were starting to expect

Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Clayton Kershaw and Jacob deGrom have combined for 18 strikeouts and we're in the top of the fifth.

Baseball Tonight @BBTN

Clayton Kershaw and Jacob deGrom both have 8 K in 4 IP. Got to love a good ol' fashion pitchers' duel!

Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Clayton Kershaw hit a drive to the warning track, but Yoenis Cespedes tracked it down to save two runs. Still 2-0 #Mets

Mendoza happy to be broadcasting pioneer

ESPN's Jessica Mendoza on being the first woman to call a nationally televised MLB playoff game: "If you're good at something, it doesn't matter your gender."


Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Clayton Kershaw falls behind 2-0 and Daniel Murphy hits a 94-mph fastball down the middle for a home run and it's 1-0 #Mets in the fourth

Mark Saxon @markasaxon

Corey Seager's first post-season hit will look like a line-drive double in the box score. Actually a fly ball that Cuddyer misplayed

deGrom doing better than 0 K, much better

Jacob deGrom has set down 6 batters in two innings, allowing 2 hits and walking a batter, but all of the outs have come via the strikeout. deGrom is the 5th pitcher to get the first 6 outs of a postseason game via the K (most in 7 by Mike Hampton in 2003).


Strikeouts aplenty in Los Angeles

Through 2 innings, Clayton Kershaw has 4 strikeouts and Jacob deGrom has 6. The pitchers' duel is on and the Mets and Dodgers are scoreless in Game 1 of the NLDS. Follow live


Boras: Harvey already gave his arm for Mets

Matt Harvey's agent Scott Boras told reporters: "Everybody knows what his ethic is. And remember this, too: Matt Harvey gave his arm already for the New York Mets. In 2013, he pitched until he didn't have a ligament. He's the kind of guy, he wants his team to do well."

Pham 'lucky' to hit big homer against Cubs

Tommy Pham on his 8th-inning HR against Jon Lester to put the Cardinals up 2-0 over the Cubs: "I got lucky. I was fortunate enough to not chase Lester tonight. He made a mistake and I put a good swing on it,"


Piscotty: 'It was a lot of fun'

Cardinals rookie Stephen Piscotty, who hit a HR in Game 1, marveled over John Lackey's start and credits his coaches for getting him prepared for the spotlight of the postseason.
