    导出博客文章LOS ANGELES -- Already a workhorse this postseason, ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw could continue to carry a heavy workload for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. Zhaire Smith Jersey .Asked before the Dodgers 6-0 Game 3 win on Tuesday about the potential for Kershaw to pitch on short rest for Game 5, manager Dave Roberts first said he just wanted to concentrate on the night ahead. But he did admit that it is not out of the question that Kershaw could be asked to pitch in Game 5, on three days of rest, under certain circumstances.Should the?Chicago Cubs?win Game 4 at Dodger Stadium, leaving the series tied at 2, Roberts said Kershaws appearance in Game 5 is less likely. But if the Dodgers win Game 4 and are on the verge of clinching a World Series berth, then anything is possible with the rotation.Another deciding factor on Kershaws early use would have to do with how taxed the relievers are entering Thursday nights game. Kershaw did pitch on short rest in Game 4 of the NL Division Series, when the Dodgers were facing elimination against the Washington Nationals.Thats why there is no definitive, because there are a lot of variables, Roberts said. Game 4 in the division series, it was because of the use of the pen and all that stuff -- and that is why we went Kersh instead of?Julio [Urias]. So thats why its not as easy just to make one decision right now.Kershaw, for one, said hes ready for whatever Roberts throws at him.Feeling good. All good, he told Fox during Tuesdays game.In the playoffs you just kind of wait and see how things are going. I understand that, and Im ready for that. Whatever game they pick.?If Kershaw is not asked to start Game 5 on Thursday, that outing is expected to go to Kenta Maeda. But the Dodgers rookie right-hander has struggled of late, giving up eight earned runs in a combined 6? innings in his last two regular-season starts, and giving up seven earned runs in a combined seven innings of his two postseason starts.After [the Game 4] result, it will be a little more clear, but still, nothing definitive yet, Roberts said.Kershaw pitched in three of the five division series games against the Nationals, starting Game 1, and again in Game 4 on three days of rest. The Dodgers won both games. Kershaw then recorded the final two outs of the clubs Game 5 victory on one day of rest.Three days after that two-out save, Kershaw pitched seven scoreless innings in Sundays Game 2 of the NLCS, securing the victory and helping L.A. even the series at 1. The first four games the Dodgers won this postseason were games in which Kershaw threw at least one pitch.All told, Kershaw threw 19? innings over a 10-day stretch. He is the first pitcher to throw that many innings over four or more postseason games in a 10-day stretch since former Dodgers ace Orel Hershiser in 1988.The heavy workload, though, combined with the back injury that forced Kershaw to miss 75 days in the regular season, gives the Dodgers pause when leaning so heavily on their best pitcher.I think his health has to be the No. 1 factor, Roberts said. Thats why the decisions weve made -- we talked to the training staff, we talked to Clayton most importantly, and have felt comfortable with it.Roberts said Kershaw is feeling fine after his heavy postseason use thus far, but the club wont take that for granted.Yeah, I just think it is unfair just to assume anything because he is Clayton, Roberts said. So, for us, internally, this is something we have to be mindful of, and we are. Melvin Frazier Jersey . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. Chandler Hutchison Jersey .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. (STATS) -- Shortly after Youngstown State found out it was headed to the FCS playoffs for the first time in 10 years, safety LeRoy Alexander stepped to the podium and admitted his Penguins knew little about their opponent before earnestly offering one tidbit hed gleaned from an early scouting report on Samford.We hear they like to pass the ball.Rumor has it that its a dangerous time of year to be a turkey, too.Alexander and his teammates will find out rather quickly on Saturday that what they heard is true as 13th-ranked Youngstown State faces what should be a tough aerial test from Devlin Hodges and one of the nations most dangerous passing attacks.The Penguins (8-3, 6-2 Missouri Valley) were the subdivisions dynasty in the 1990s, winning four national championships in five title game appearances, but theyve made just one playoff appearance since Jim Tressel left for Ohio State in 2001.Its only taken Bo Pelini two years to get Youngstown State back in the 24-team field since returning to his hometown, and after finishing 5-6 in his first season, the Penguins are headed to the playoffs with a defense that hasnt given up more than 24 points to an FCS opponent this season.Pelini didnt stick around long enough at Nebraska to have to worry about any playoff scenarios, but after spending nine years as an NFL assistant prior to starting with the Cornhuskers, he has a pretty good feel for what to expect come Saturday.Its win or go home, Pelini said. Lets go. Lets see what youve got. Thats the kind of challenge you want.Its tough to say if 23rd-ranked Samford (7-4, 5-3 Southern) is the type of task theyll regret having to face for the right to meet third-seeded and second-ranked Jacksonville State. The Bulldogs led the FCS in pass completions (353) and completion percentage (71.3) and were second in attempts (495), with Hodges 33 touchdown passes ranking third nationally.The sophomore, who on Tuesday was named the SoCons offensive player of the year by both the coaches and media, threw for at least 280 yards and two TDs in every game but Samfords latest. And when JJ Jermans 28-yard field goal went through as time expired last Saturday, giving 5-6 East Tennessee State an unlikely 15-14 upset, it seemed like the Bulldogs regular-season finale would also be their 2016 finale.Samforrds inclusion in the bracket even caught its coach off guard. Grayson Allen Jersey. (I was surprised) a little bit, Ill be honest with you, Chris Hatcher said. But after evaluating the situation on the way home (Saturday) night and seeing how the bubble teams fared, I really thought we had a chance.Our overall body of work throughout the course of the season -- the Central Arkansas game was a huge win, The Citadel game, how we played them on the road, how we played Mississippi State -- I think that was big for us. ... We were down and out, and all of the sudden, weve got new life about ourselves.The Bulldogs have to hope last week was a blip on the radar and that Hodges can bounce back against a Youngstown State defense that thrives on getting to the quarterback. The Penguins led the FCS with 40 sacks as defensive ends Derek Rivers and Avery Moss registered 10 apiece.It seems unlikely theyll be able to cause that much damage in the backfield considering Samfords offense is built upon Hodges getting the ball out quick to FCS receptions leader Karel Hamilton, Kelvin McKnight and Emmanuel Obajimi, but 18 of the 23 sacks Samford suffered came in its six road games.Youngstown State went 6-0 at home and hasnt lost there since Nov. 14, 2015, when it blew a two-touchdown fourth-quarter lead to eventual national champion North Dakota State.One thing seems certain Saturday: the Penguins owning time of possession. They finished sixth in the FCS, holding the ball for 33:41 per game behind a ground game centered around seniors Martin Ruiz and Jody Webb. Samford was 124th of 125 teams, possessing it for just 24:54 per contest.Youngstown State had five drives that took four plays or fewer while racking up a 2016 FCS record 572 yards on the ground in last Saturdays 65-20 pounding of Missouri State, while Samford comes in as an 8 1/2-point underdog thats dropped three of four.To Hatcher, though, the ETSU loss could be more of a wake-up call than a warning.I hope its gonna be a big positive for us, he said. Now our guys know what its like to have their season over, and now we have a chance to play some more football.Theres nothing like practicing on Thanksgiving morning.
