The Mets will send Jacob deGrom to the mound to start the team's first postseason game in nine years tomorrow in L.A., while Clayton Kershaw will get the nod for the Dodgers.  The Mets will follow up with Noah Syndergaard in Game 2 against  Zack Greinke and Matt Harvey in Game 3 against Brett Anderson. The teams have not announced starters past Game 3, but both deGrom and Kershaw may go on short rest depending on where the teams stand after three games.
