Los Angeles Dodgers roll again, push Arizona Diamondbacks to edge

10 October 2017

Arizona took a 2-0 first-inning lead against Hill.

Arizona won its last six regular-season games against the Dodgers, but Los Angeles dominated its NL West rival when it mattered most, sweeping an opponent in the postseason for the first time since the 2009 NLDS against St. Louis.

L.A. won Game 2 on Saturday 8-5 behind two RBIs from Yasiel Puig and Austin Barnes. The Dodgers have been on a mission to win the World Series since the beginning of their incredible season, but it's clearly been made possible because of the miraculous effort that Cody Bellinger has put in since the day he was called up.

Finally, in his sixth big-league season, Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin will make his postseason debut. The homer knocked Greinke out of the game with a final line of 5+ IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 4 K, 2 HR and 105 pitches. As a result, this matchup received far less attention than the other three playoff series. Corbin allowed a combined eight runs (six earned) on 16 hits with five walks in 10.2 innings.

The Dodgers tinkered with Darvish's mechanics after the trade, and he was masterful through most of the night, mixing a 98 miles per hour fastball with his deep repertoire of offspeed pitches. Reliever Jimmie Sherfy gave up three more runs in a critical fifth inning. The Dodgers received help from the usual sources, as well as from unlikely ones. After Tony Watson allowed back-to-back singles to open the seventh, pinch-hitter Brandon Drury greeted Brandon Morrow with a homer to left that narrowed the margin to 7-5.

First #postseason homer for @Cody_Bellinger? The Dodgers will host the victor of the Cubs vs Nationals series in which the Cubs now lead 2-1 after a win on Monday. For the Diamondbacks, avoiding a sweep now becomes the top priority.

Arizona's pitching has disappointed against the heavily-favored Dodgers in the first two games of the series. Nobody enjoyed the comforts of home more than Game 3 starter Zack Greinke, who went 13-1 with a 2.87 ERA there during the season. In the meantime, the job is only just beginning for the Dodgers.
