Dodgers keep Baez, Stripling on playoff roster

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

They dropped the NLCS in six games to the Cubs previous year and are certainly looking to improve on that. Austin Barnes went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, a stolen base two runs and two RBIs.

Just as the addition of Darvish has both strengthened and deepened the Dodgers' postseason starting rotation, the pitcher he bumped out of that rotation - right-hander Kenta Maeda - has done wonders for a late-inning bullpen unit that struggled late in the season to piece together the outs between the starting pitcher and dominating closer Kenley Jansen. He allowed one earned run on two hits with nine strikeouts and no walks over seven innings in a 9-3 home win over the Padres his last regular season start.

Cody Bellinger, a local Arizona product, had a night to remember in front of his friends and family.

In his two previous postseason starts with the Texas Rangers, Darvish had a record of 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA.

The Dodgers clinched the best-of-five divisional series in three games. In the bottom half, Bellinger secured the final out of the inning when Jeff Mathis popped out in foul territory.

The star began by showing Leslie's reaction as she opens the refrigerator and leaps across the room, falling to her knees and crying.

From the get go, it was apparent that Greinke did not have his stuff. Greinke loaded the bases in the third via a pair of walks and a Turner single. The Dodgers rolled the Diamondbacks to extend their series lead to 2-0. But despite walking five hitters and needing 88 pitches to get through the first four innings, he kept the score at 1-0. The D-Backs were not happy about that at all, with utility infielder Willie Bloomquist famously saying, "I would expect someone to act with a little more class. We just wanted one more batter", Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said of the decision to let Greinke, down by a run, face Barnes leading off the sixth inning.

Arizona made two changes to its roster from the wild-card game against Colorado, adding Game 1 starter Taijuan Walker and Pacific Coast League MVP Christian Walker while dropping outfielder Rey Fuentes and catcher Chris Herrmann.

Four Los Angeles relievers combined to preserve a three-hitter.

Daniel Descalso (3) is greeted by manager Tory Lovullo (17) after hitting a home run in the fifth inning. Clayton Kershaw was solid in his outing, despite giving up four solo home runs to the Diamondbacks.

Rizzo stumbled after he took a big turn around first and was tagged out to end the inning, but he didn't seem to care too much, demanding veneration as the Cubs came out of the dugout for the ninth. After he struck out the side in the fourth, ending it with a nasty, 96-mph sinker to whiff Arizona slugger J.D. Martinez, Darvish came off the mound howling and fist-pumping. On Greinke's second pitch of the sixth, he served up an 89 miles per hour fastball that Barnes lined 398 feet to leftfield, restoring their two-run lead. David Peralta would immediately ground into a double play, taking away any momentum the D-Backs had.
