LA Dodgers A.J. Pollock,showed confidence when the starting pitcher for Game 3 of the Division Series was announced.

The Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants 9-2 in Game 2 of the 2021 National League Division Series held at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California on the 10th.The Dodgers, who have shared 1 win and 1 loss, will play their third game at Dodger Stadium on the 12th.

San Francisco predicted starting pitcher Alex Wood in Game 3. Wood is a difficult starting pitcher to be considered an ace. In particular, his last two seasons have averaged over five runs.But he's been pretty decent this season with a 10-4 ERA of 3.83 in 26 games (138⅔ innings), and although Wood hasn't been doing well over the past two seasons,he's still not a negligible starting pitcher. Nevertheless,Pollock confidently joked when Wood said he would start as a starting pitcher.

Pollock played 117 games this season with a batting average of 2.9 pps (114 hits in 384), 21 homers, 69 RBIs, and an OPS of .892. However, in the postseason, he is still quiet with a batting average of 622 in three games (2 hits in nine) and two RBIs of .633.

Still,he have confidence. He sprinted in Game 2 of the Division Series with a two-in-three,two-run,one-walk that finally started to hit.In addition,he showed a strong appearance against Wood.

Pollock also played with Wood last season for the Dodgers, but he played against Wood in many at-bats as he played seven seasons (2012-18) for Arizona before coming to the Dodgers.In relative performance,Pollock had an overwhelming lead with a career batting average of 40,000 (10 hits in 25), 2 homers, 3 RBIs and 1.204 OPS.This is a score that Pollock can be confident about.

For the Dodgers,ace Max Scherzer starts Game 3 as the starting pitcher.If Pollock and the Dodgers lineup,which has started to revive,score a lot of goals against former teammate Wood,the pendulum is highly likely to lean toward the Dodgers.
