One more to go! Can Dodgers sweep Diamondbacks?

After the Game 1 loss, Lovullo admitted as much.

In the end, Godley did a superior job in relief. It's that team offense concept.

Part of the doubt on everyone's mind as the hits against Kershaw kept coming was the Diamondbacks' propensity for making the most of their final outs.

Rich Hill was seen in the dugout holding up a cardboard sign that read "Make Some Noise!" in the seventh inning to try and pump up the crowd. But he's the guy they want out there. But, Roberts noted, Sunday's off day meant he could have made it work in Game 2 even if they had not been as efficient. I haven't quite gotten to that decision yet. This style of chipping away at a defense and exploiting weakness is often referred to as small ball. The Dodgers, by contrast, had no problem getting on base and this is what made the difference. Unthinkable for a pitcher with a regular season ERA of 2.36 across nearly 2,000 pitches thrown. "It presents some unique challenges for bullpen usage". He's certainly better than you, and most of the National League for that matter, as evidenced by his 3.49 ERA this season, the ninth-highest among NL pitchers to throw at least 150 innings.

"I don't know the exact reason why we did (have success vs. the Dodgers)", Lovullo said Thursday after his team's workout. We're a smart, tough baseball team. That's significant because, at long last, he won't be asked to pitch a playoff game on unnaturally short rest.

Turner was three-for-four with a three-run homer in the first inning and RBI singles in the fourth and eighth.

"There's familiarity, but I think there's hopefully a lot of respect", Goldschmidt said.

Despite having committed to play at Texas A&M, Kershaw was the No. 7 pick in the 2006 MLB Draft and the first high school player chosen.

One inning later, the Dodgers chased Ray from the game with a four-run fifth inning, as Forsythe, Barnes and Puig all recorded RBI. "It wasn't exactly like they were roping the ball all over the field on me". We feel good about the way we approached Kershaw. They combined for 12 hits; they went 5-for-15 with runners in scoring position; Justin Turner drove in five runs all on his own. It is the postseason. In 19.2 innings, Hill has given up eleven runs and four home runs. Seager also walked and tripled, so that's two more Dodgers stars who faded a bit late but now look poised for an October push.

With Max Scherzer dealing with a hamstring issue, Strasburg will be the Nationals starter in Game 1. For the Diamondbacks, Daniel Descalso replaced Brandon Drury at second base, Chris Iannetta replaced Jeff Mathis at catcher and Jake Lamb replaced Adam Rosales at third base. It may have been a mirage in the late summer, but here in the fall the mission is simpler, reduced to a single goal: win one more game.

Virtually alone on a team full of lunchbox grinders and low-key personalities, Puig demands attention and commands eyeballs, both with his immense talents and his what-will-he-do-next antics.

However, this game will be different.

The Dodgers' 2017 regular season ended with a record of 104-58 as they clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Arizona Diamondbacks advanced to the National League Division Series after beating the Colorado Rockies 11-8 in a slugfest.

To properly handle Arizona, Los Angeles cannot change who they have been all season.
