Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw pitched in game five on Sunday but stated on Tuesday night that he’s available to pitch in game seven. Kershaw mentioned he could pitch 27 innings at this point. The Dodgers will start Yu Darvish in game seven on Wednesday night and could have Kershaw pitch in relief if they need him.

Managing Game 7 is the most difficult job in sports-ESPN.com
Sam Miller of ESPN.com writes about how difficult it is for a manager to manage game seven of a World Series. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts informed Kershaw to be ready to get the last out in game seven on Wednesday according to Buster Olney. While the Dodgers used Jansen early in relief in an elimination game during the 2015 NLDS, Kershaw pitched in relief on one day’s rest in game five of the NLDS according to Miller. Miller wrote both outings were heroic moments of each player’s postseason careers and Wednesday could top those moments or be the exact opposite.
