Diamondbacks vs. Dodgers: NLDS Odds and Prediction

Bring on the Dodgers, Diamondbacks Advance!!

"It's always a tall task against him, trying to battle and get baserunners", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.

The ceremonial first pitch will be thrown by Maury Wills, the 1962 National League MVP when he set a since-broken record with 104 stolen bases and a member of the Dodgers World Series-winning teams in 1959, 1963 and 1965.

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. They come out with a chip on their shoulder, and they want to get the job done.

Game 3 of the best-of-five matchup is Monday at Chase Field.

What: The Arizona Diamondbacks take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLDS.

Hill settled down from there, allowing just the two runs on three hits with three walks and four strikeouts in four innings. In 13 starts since his return from injury, he has a 2.19 ERA.

It wasn't much of a coincidence when, following the display, the Dodgers scored an insurance run on a fielding error to jump head, 8-5. As run after run came off the bats against Kershaw, it seemed like they would add one more such win. However, he was not the only one sporting Dodger Blue to give us a show. Greinke is 3-3 with a 3.92 ERA and 55 strikeouts in his postseason career. He is far from being just a contingency plan though as he went 15-4 with a 2.52 ERA in 28 starts.

We know that the game of baseball today is all about home runs. They clear the bases and the Dodgers can deal with empty bases.

Ray was 3-0 against the Dodgers with a 2.27 ERA. It's good to have a guy like that on the team because we don't have a ton of them like that. The American League teams had finished two games before their Game 1.

Rich Hill was good enough for the Dodgers, while Robbie Ray was not his usual self as the Diamondbacks were beaten 8-5 on Saturday. First pitch is at 9:08PM EST. Next in line would be Zack Godley, but he threw five innings of relief in Game 1. Hill went six innings, allowed just two runs, and struck out nine batters. He allowed one run or less in five of the eight starts.

The Dodgers could tell early that Ray was not himself, so they waited him out, patiently working at-bat after at-bat, even if the results were not immediately evident.

We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game.

"Every year is unique, but I'm thankful for another opportunity", Kershaw said.

They have needed all the runs they have gotten.

Game 2 may not be an elimination game, but it may well be a must-win for the Diamondbacks.

Let's start with Jimmie Sherfy, who was outstanding for the D-backs late in the season but only pitched in 11 MLB games entering the playoffs.

The national anthem will be sung by Elliott Yamin, the third-place finisher in the 2006 season of "American Idol".

Jansen promised they were, as he chose to interpret the silence as a positive sign, an indication the other players shared his determined mindset. Then they flat-out guffawed through a lost 2016 season during which the former Cy Young winner looked downright average at times. Including his stellar defense in rightfield (+18 Defensive Runs Saved), his 3.7 WAR was his highest since 2014, and better than the 2.5 he produced in his previous two seasons.

Los Angeles grew the lead in the 8th inning as Seager's triple brought in Austin Barnes, followed by a Turner grounder to drive in Seager.
