It’s the Dodgers versus the Mets in the National League Division Series, and the Los Angeles and New York police chiefs are betting some serious meat on the matchup.

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck and his predecessor, New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, announced a wager Wednesday, with the winner getting a free deli meal, most likely pastrami.

If the Dodgers win, Bratton will treat Beck to lunch at New York’s famed Katz’s Deli. If the Mets win, Beck will be picking up the tab for lunch at Langer’s Deli in Los Angeles.

Clayton Kershaw will be the starting pitcher Friday for game one of the NLD series at Chavez Ravine.

On Sunday, he added another accomplishment to his already impressive resume, recording his 300th strikeout of the season in the third inning of the Dodgers’ 6-3 win over the Padres. He’s the only major league player to reach the strikeout milestone since 2002.
