Dodgers: Tony Gonsolin gets the start tonight in Los Angeles

For some reason, the Dodgers were not willing to announce their starter for today’s game. That could go back to the game Dave Roberts was talking about between him and Gabe Kapler last year. The match-up with the Giants in the play-offs was certainly part of that.

But just a few hours before game time, the Dodgers have someone throwing. Tony Gonsolin gets the ball to make his fifth start of the season. Gonsolin is coming off a game in which he conceded two earned points against the Diamondbacks in the desert.

During his 4 starts this year, Gonsolin has allowed 3 earned runs in 17 innings of work. He was surprisingly one of the more consistent arms, also striking out 13 batters and gaining more control over his control issues. But he has still run 8 guys over his first 4 starts.

So the Dodgers will turn to Gonsolin to win the series over the Giants. He played only three times in his career against San Francisco, giving up 4 earned runs in 8.1 innings of work. They hope he can maintain the consistency of this season in Los Angeles tonight.

Opposite Gonsolin is Alex Wood. He spent several years with the Dodgers, bouncing from the starting rotation to the bullpen. He is coming off a start against the Nationals in which he gave up 5 earned runs in 5 innings of work.
