Never mind the Freeway World Series. Neither one of them could even find their way onto the freeway.

Just two days after the Los Angeles Angels were swept by the Kansas City Royals in the American League Division Series (ALDS), the Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the St. Louis Cardinals in four games in the National League Division Series (NLDS).

For the second straight year, the Dodgers were eliminated by the Cardinals, who will be making fourth consecutive trip to the NL Championship Series.

The Dodgers sent out “the best pitcher in baseball,” Clayton Kershaw, twice in the series to no avail. Kershaw was tagged  in the seventh inning for the second straight outing, this time heartbroken by Matt Adams’ go-ahead, three-run home run to lose 3-2.

The Dodgers took a 2-0 lead in the sixth inning of Tuesday’s road game, but it just wasn’t meant to be.

“The season ended and I was a big part of the reason why,” Kershaw said.

Kershaw will likely win his third NL Cy Young Award in four years, but his postseason record leaves a lot to be desired. He dropped to 1-5 with a 5.12 ERA in 11 postseason games, including four straight losses to the Cardinals.

The Dodgers haven’t been to the World Series since winning the title in 1988.
