Diamondbacks vs. Dodgers: NLDS Odds and Prediction

Bring on the Dodgers, Diamondbacks Advance!!

Before he was crafting a résumé as one of the greatest pitchers of all-time, though, Kershaw was drawing scouts to Dallas, Texas.

But bless these Diamondbacks, for they did not go quietly. Kershaw pitches only every five days and prefers to lead by example.

In his last start at Dodger Stadium, Ray racked up 14 strikeouts and plenty of swings and misses. He pitched in five games (four starts) during last year's playoffs against the Nationals and Cubs and went 2-1 with a 4.44 ERA.

Some of baseball's norms just don't apply to the exuberant Puig.

"I felt great", Ray said.

Things got dicey there in the end. Ray threw 88 pitches, three of them wild, only 54 for strikes.

Arizona took a 2-0 lead on Paul Goldschmidt's two-run homer in the first inning. He went seven innings giving up three runs (two earned), four hits, and one walk while striking out 13. 2017 is Walker's first season with the Diamondbacks, and his fourth year as a pro. We held him back off the Wild Card roster for the potential of this happening. "(Walker) was the choice, a clear-cut choice. But he has two RBI and two walks against his ex-teammate, and ... well, these days he's contributing even beyond whatever his numbers show.

The Diamondbacks host LA at 7 p.m. on Monday on TBS.

After the Game 1 loss, Lovullo admitted as much.

Does Kershaw melt when the stage gets bigger?

J.D. Martinez missed a cutoff man that led to an extra base for the Dodgers, who later cashed in.

The Dodgers always looked susceptible to something like this because of how they constructed their team. Will the Dodgers be so quick to use Jensen going forward in the playoffs, and will that prove to be their undoing?

"I want to make sure that I give us the best chance to win the game tomorrow and match up with Kershaw the best we possibly can". They're especially damaging come October, and even more so when you're facing a team coming off a 104-win season.

"I didn't really feel that urgency until today". I've faced them a couple times this year, so they've seen me a little bit, too.

Jaster beat Don Drysdale and Claude Osteen twice apiece. That other National League series is tied 1-1.

Which is why many people around the Dodgers blinked Wednesday night when Ray came out of the Arizona dugout during the wild-card win over Colorado.

What's in store tonight? Darvish is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his postseason career.

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

Lovullo used starters Zack Greinke and Robbie Ray in the game, leaving him with Taijuan Walker to start Friday against the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw.

"He's a heck of a pitcher", Roberts said.

Lamb is out of the lineup for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Friday.

With his teammates providing such a generous cushion, Kershaw could afford to allow a few big flies in the first victory of his checkered postseason career at Dodger Stadium.

Pitchers have unshakable routines for a reason.

It will be at Butler Field in Camp Verde. The abbreviated length for the MLB postseason's first round does not significantly alter the series' outcomes, in reality or in theory. But Games 3-4 are still out there.
