Three days after he saved the National League Division Series, Clayton Kershaw will get his first look at the National League Championship Series when he starts for the Dodgers in Game 2 on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs.

When last seen, Kershaw was getting the final two outs of the winner-take-all Game 5 of the NLDS at Washington. He threw just seven pitches, two days after throwing 110 in a Dodgers victory.

"Number of pitches wise, it's pretty much the same," Kershaw said Saturday. "The intensity might have been just a hair different."
