Daniel Descalso starting at second on Thursday for Arizona

3:00 | MLB         Dodgers Acquire Yu Darvish From Rangers In Late Deadline Deal

"If it's the Diamondbacks, that's fine or if it's Colorado even better".

"I wanted to go bear-hug him mid-walk into the dugout", Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said, smiling. Who did we give up? The winning pitcher was Corey Kluber, who threw his second consecutive three-hit complete game.

They understand that they have to pitch lights out if they are going to make the playoff roster. The Dodgers were going all in.

"It's a good marker for us".

Of Darvish's 10 strikeouts, six belonged to A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt. I like Chicago to keep their momentum going with a big game one win here. "When you're playing on your home turf, you want to win and you want your fans to have your back", Bradley said.

This is a level beyond putting a new supercar in a garage already full of luxury imports, though.

OUR PREDICTION: The Dodgers are 10-1 in their last 11 road games versus a left-handed starter, are 24-3 in their last 27 games versus a left-handed starter overall, and have won 36 of their last 53 games when they play the third game of a series.

All summer long Los Angeles has been making clear that it is a level above the rest of the major leagues.

The Dodgers put three runs on the board before he took the mound Thursday.

Banda (1-2) took the loss, allowing three runs in four innings.

Through Monday's games, the Dodgers have posted a 119-63 record dating back to last season's All-Star break, when the Giants owned the best record in baseball. He allowed one run in six innings. Not bad for a pitcher who is arguably seventh on the team's rotation depth chart.

Bible Says 2017 Solar Eclipse Will Make Planet X Crash into Earth?
On two occasions, when such doomsday date predictions made were in 2003 and 2012 and we all know nothing really happened. Meade elaborated by saying, " When the eclipse begins on August 21, the sunrise will be dark, just as Isaiah predicts ".

Darvish understands the greatness of the team, he joined mid-season and not wanting to disappoint the fans of his new team. National League batting average leader Justin Turner and Kike Hernandez drove in a combined five runs, and the Dodgers picked up an 8-6 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night.

Then there are the holdovers. The next-closest team, the Houston Astros, has 71 victories.

The Diamondbacks are well aware of where they stand against the Dodgers. Chris Taylor, their starting leftfielder, entered the season carrying a career OPS+ of 70.

The reason for this strong push after an injury to the best player on the team comes for many different reasons. He is 10-1 at Chase Field.

What manager Dave Roberts' team is doing is nearly unheard of in the history of the sport. "He is one of the few guys who can cover the whole zone and hit a home run any place in the strike zone".

Of course, it is true that that kind of dominance is no guarantee of anything. They have won 14 of their past 17 series, splitting the three others.

As dominant as the Dodgers have been, both the Diamondbacks and Rockies have played them well this season. Nevertheless, this will go down as one of the most astonishing stretches of dominance the sport has ever seen. The 4 spot belongs to Rich Hill....

Lamb now has 25 home runs, 90 RBIs on the season. He went at least seven innings for the fifth straight game and also supplied an RBI single. "As we remember, back in 2001 with the Mariners having the best record of all time ... fell flat in the first round".

Without Kershaw, the staff has been great with Kenta Maeda not giving up more that one earned run in his last four starts and Hyun-Jin Ryu has not given up any earned runs in his last two starts. Ray has been on the concussion disabled list after being struck in the head with a batted ball late last month. But they will when October arrives.

The only thing easy about Darvish's night was the offensive support.

He might just be right.
