NLDS Game 1 Predictions: Will Dodgers roll past Diamondbacks? 10/6/17

Archie Bradley triple

The Diamondbacks have not named a starter for Game 2, while the Dodgers will go with Rich Hill in that game.

"Right now I'm preparing for a potential Game 5", Kershaw said, "and hopefully Game 1 of the next series".

Looking to back up their season-best 104 wins, the Los Angeles Dodgers begin their 2017 postseason campaign against the NL West rival Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. The Dodgers have Yu Darvish (10-12) starting against Diamondbacks' ace Zack Greinke (17-7). Coming into his NLDS start against the Diamondbacks Friday night, Kershaw sported a combined 4-7 record, a 4.55 ERA for 13 starts in post-season play. He was dominant against Los Angeles during the regular season, going 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA in five starts, striking out 53 in 31 2/3 innings. Meanwhile, the Arizona position players went a combined 6 of 29, with J.D.

When Puig emerged from the Dodgers' clubhouse for a postgame news conference, he was alongside teammate Justin Turner, who homered and drove in five runs in the win.

Not many teams get to someone as good as Boston's Chris Sale , but the Astros did early and often as they piled on the runs. With 168 home runs during the regular season, Boston finished 27 out of 30 Major League teams, 40 less than the 2016 squad.

Ray remains a possibility for Game 2.

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.

"He's called the Wild Horse for a reason", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "I know certain things you may have seen throughout the course of the year would give you the feeling that it wasn't a great relationship", Lovullo said, "but believe it or not, it's a strong, kind of pushing forward type of relationship".

All potential postseason games at Dodger Stadium through the National League Championship Series are sold out.

Indeed, Afghan security forces are now fully engaged in offensive military operations for the first time in the 16-year war. Pakistan's only leverage with U.S. is the land supply route to Afghanistan and threats of bolting to the Chinese camp.

In Friday's first inning, Puig fouled off three two-strike pitches until he found a suitable fastball.

Roberts removed Kershaw after he allowed homers to Ketel Marte and Jeff Mathis on back-to-back pitches with one out in the seventh.

While the Diamondbacks can take a minor consolation in reaching Kershaw for four homers, Lovullo make the point to Call to the Pen that his team is tough and will respond.

This will be Walker's first postseason appearance, but his fifth against the Dodgers overall, against whom he has an unsightly 4.79 ERA. A pinch hit lead off single by Austin Barnes was cashed in on a Corey Seager RBI triple, Turner followed with and RBI single that gave the Dodgers a 9-5 lead.
