Arizona Diamondbacks Confident As They Begin NLDS Against Dodgers

Dodgers Face a Familiar Rival That Has Recently Had Their Number

Japanese right-hander Yu Darvish will start Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks next week, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced Friday. In two starts here this season - his first with the Diamondbacks - Walker allowed only two runs in 11 innings. It's just that now, moving forward, part of the fallout is sorting a rotation where its top two starters aren't available for Game 1 of the NLDS against the 104-win Dodgers. The 26-year-old Southpaw was 15-5 with a 2.89 ERA and 218 strikeouts in 162 innings this season.

Turner's three-run homer sparked a four-run opening frame in which the first five Dodgers reached base safely.

"I'm definitely confident that he's worked out his issues", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said earlier this week.

Arizona is going to need a whole lot more where that came from not only to come back on Friday, but to keep up with Los Angeles over the remainder of the series.

If the Dodgers could have chosen one team to avoid in the postseason it probably would have been the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Although the Los Angeles Dodgers had a losing record this year against both of their potential division series opponents, given their past struggles against left-handed pitching, you figured they had to be rooting for the Colorado Rockies in the wild-card game.

England lucky to have Kane, says Hart
However, Southgate insists Kane has not been permanently awarded the captaincy and any decision over England's long-term captain is now on hold.

The Dodgers put the first five batters on base against a Diamondbacks starter, Taijuan Walker, making his first postseason appearance.

Kershaw tossed (6.1 IP, 5 Hits, 4 ER, 3 BB, 7K) in 100 pitches. "Made the decision to take him out after the first inning".

"I see my teammates so excited on the bench", Puig said, laughing. You can't go out there and let the adrenaline really get to you.

"He's been an elite pitcher all year long, so we're certainly leaning in the direction of putting Robbie out there as quickly as possible", Lovullo said.

Puig had another standout game in his late-season surge, and the Cuban right fielder also provided some entertainment. The Dodgers showed no signs of rust despite not playing in several days, as they jumped on Arizona with a 4-0 lead after the first inning.
