Dodgers advance to NLCS, sweep Diamondbacks

Dodgers’ Dave Roberts On Yasiel Puig Pulling Kenta Maeda And More Alex Perez 10/08/2017 News

Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger, a Scottsdale native and a graduate of Chandler Hamilton High School, made the D-backs pay at the plate and in the field.

After a 20-pitch fifth, by far his most laborious inning of the night, Darvish's pitch count was at 68 when Roberts let him bat with one out and a man on third in the top of the sixth, but after almost hitting Walker once (a review confirmed the call that it was a foul ball), he did hit him on the very next pitch, which produced a scary moment. Darvish was brilliant with just 76 pitches over five innings, allowing just two hits and a hit batsman, striking out seven. Thankfully, Walker was in good enough shape to take his place at first base, but that was it for Darvish. The 33-year-old is 3-3 with a 3.92 ERA in 10 career postseason outings with two of the wins coming during his six postseason starts for the Dodgers.

Ethier considered the kindergarten math - four more wins to get to the World Series, eight to win it all - and could say with more conviction than any other Dodger how big those numbers truly are. Greinke threw 29 pitches in the first inning and finished with 105.

In the bottom of the fifth, Bellinger made this incredible grab in front of the Dodgers dugout to end the inning. Los Angeles took Game 1 with a score of 9-5. It was station-to-station baseball, and it was deployed perfectly to give the Dodgers an early 1-0 lead. This could be a bad matchup for the Dodgers, putting them up against the one team that they probably didn't want to face in the divisional series round.

Arrest Warrant Obtained for Deandre Harris
When one white supremacist attempted to hit 20-year-old DeAndre # Harris with a flagpole, Harris swung a flashlight back at them. After news broke of the arrest warrant against Harris on Monday, white nationalists openly celebrated on Twitter.

The Dbacks would later narrow the gap on a Daniel Decalso homer in the 5th.

The Dodgers had a strong showing against the Diamondbacks in all three of their meetings. Quality at-bats, with quality production.

"It was about finishing them off", Darvish said, "because momentum can go their way". The key here is how did the Dodgers get these runners in scoring position. Look out NL. Wait, scratch that, look out Major League Baseball.

For the second straight game, the D-Backs' bullpen prevented any chance of stealing a game at Dodger Stadium before the series goes back to Arizona. Five innings doesn't jump off the page, but if you watched the game, you would have seen how dominant he was in those five innings were. Tony Cingrani came in and induced a 3-6-3 double play on a terrific play by Bellinger. Their offense touched the three Arizona starters for 11 runs in 10 1/3 innings, including a three-runs-and-five-walks in five innings embarrassment of former Dodger Zack Greinke in the clincher. But in Game 2, the Dodgers' superior depth won out. Jansen did his thing and shut the door after a successfuly performance from Morrow. So, it's something that, I think, I'll try to do; just try to pitch my game, be aggressive in the zone, just try to let them put the ball in play and pitch to my strengths.
