DENVER (AP) — Dodgers closer

Kenley Jansen went to the hospital with an irregular heartbeat before a game Thursday against Colorado and will be sent back to Los Angeles for more tests.Manager Dave Roberts said after the Dodgers’ 8-5 win over the Rockies that Jansen was at the hotel earlier in the day and didn’t feel right. Jansen called the trainer and was taken to the hospital.Jansen has dealt with an irregular heartbeat in the past and will visit his cardiologist in Los Angeles. Roberts said the right-hander had his medication with him on the trip.“We’re holding out hope it’s not too serious Jeff Samardzija Jersey ,” Roberts said. “In talking to the trainer right now, his mood is fine.”Roberts didn’t know if the team would make a roster move in Jansen’s absence. Los Angeles plays three more games at Coors Field before returning home.The Dodgers used Scott Alexander to close the ninth Thursday. Jansen is tied for the NL lead with 32 saves this season.“Anytime you’re talking about the heart and irregular heartbeat, you’ve got to be very careful with it,” Roberts said. “You’re talking about altitude (in Denver). That’s why we want to be proactive and get him back” to Los Angeles.Jansen spent a month on the disabled list during the 2011 season because of blood thinning medication he was taking to treat an irregular heartbeat. In 2012, he was out again after suffering an irregular heartbeat during an Aug. 27 appearance in Colorado. He underwent a procedure on his heart on Oct. 23, 2012, to return it to normal rhythm.“Once he sees the doctors, the cardiologists — we’ll know more about his timetable then,” Roberts said. Just when thought we knew who would advance to the 2018 World Series, the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers flipped their respective league championship series on their heads Tuesday.Entering Wednesday's action, the Dodgers are tied 2-2 with the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLCS, while the Red Sox hold a 2-1 ALCS advantage over the Houston Astros.The direction of the series can change in an instant, which makes predicting the two World Series participants a difficult task.Although a World Series rematch between the Astros and Dodgers is still in play http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authenti...eto-jersey , it's far from a guarantee with less than a week before the start of the Fall Classic.2018 World Series ScheduleGame 1:Tuesday, October 23 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 2:Wednesday, October 24 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 3:Friday, October 26 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 4:Saturday, October 27 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 5:Sunday, October 28 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 6:Tuesday, October 30 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 7:Wednesday Mark Melancon Jersey , October 31 (Time TBD, Fox)LCS PredictionsDodgers in 6The Dodgers carry a few valuable things heading into Wednesday's Game 5, including home-field advantage and the momentum gained from Tuesday's 13-inning victory.Matt Slocum/Associated PressThe quick turnaround to Game 5 won't be kind to either side, but the Dodgers appear to have a distinct advantage with Clayton Kershaw toeing the rubber.Neither lineup has been particularly impressive, as the Brewers are hitting .231 and the Dodgers have a .201 series average, which leads us to believe another low-scoring affair is in the cards for at least Game 5.In his first start of the NLCS, Kershaw gave up four earned runs in three innings, but the Brewers haven't been able to score five runs in a game since their opening triumph at Miller Park.Milwaukee has received some unlikely production from Orlando Arcia while Ryan Braun is continuing his strong postseason with five hits and three RBI, but for the most part, the Brewers lineup hasn't done much.The same can be said about the Los Angeles lineup with the exception of Manny Machado, who leads the series with six hits.With Los Angeles' starters and Milwaukee's bullpen keeping hitters off-balance, neither lineup will put up astronomical numbers for the remainder of the season.The NLCS will come down to pitching, where the Dodgers have an upper hand with three reliable starters available in Kershaw http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authenti...ers-jersey , Hyun-Jin Ryu and Walker Buehler.Milwaukee's bullpen-first strategy has produced mixed results, but even with a day off between Games 5 and 6, the volume of innings pitched will weigh them down.Expect to see two tight games to finish off the series, with the Dodgers emerging victorious thanks to clutch hits from Machado and Justin Turner, who will shine in Game 6 just like he did during Game 2 in Milwaukee. Red Sox in 7No one knows which direction the ALCS will turn after Boston took control of the series with an 8-2 victory in Game 3.Frank Franklin II/Associated PressThe series we thought would be dominated by pitching has seen 31 runs cross the plate in 27 innings, and it looks like the bats on both sides are just getting warmed up.Seven of the nine players who started Game 3 in Boston's lineup recorded a hit, including Jackie Bradley Jr., who busted the contest open with an eighth-inning grand slam.Although the Astros only recorded two runs on seven hits in their first home game of the ALCS, the production from the top of the lineup showed promise.George Springer, who extended his postseason hitting streak to 12 games, Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman combined for five of Houston's seven hits in Game 3, but now the other two-thirds of the order have to break through at the plate.If the Astros are able to get production up and down the lineup, like the Red Sox did in Game 3 Alen Hanson Jersey , the series will continue to be dominated by the bats.While Game 4 may witness another winner scoring seven or more runs, the experienced starters in both rotations will emerge as the dominant figures of the series, starting in Game 5.Surprising performances from David Price and Nathan Eovaldi, combined with some type of Chris Sale relief appearance in Game 7, will hand the Red Sox the slightest of edges over the experienced Astros.Although the Red Sox will close out the series at Fenway Park, it could come down to the final inning of Game 7, which is why Sale will be available in some capacity.
