Arizona Diamondbacks at Los Angeles Dodgers NLDS Game 2

Arizona Diamondbacks at Los Angeles Dodgers NLDS Game 2

The Diamondbacks have not named a starter for Game 2, while the Dodgers will go with Rich Hill in that game. He pitched into the seventh inning against Arizona, giving up only five hits despite the four homers. He's stayed largely healthy, delivering the second-most innings of his 13-year career and posting a 3.32 earned-run average, giving the Dodgers offense a chance in most games. On Friday night, in Game 1 of the NLDS, he gave up four.

Lovullo didn't announce a starter for Game 2 on Saturday. There will be a day off Sunday as the teams head to Phoenix, so Greinke will have his usual four days of rest between starts.

Kershaw entered the game with a 4.55 career playoff ERA, well above his career regular-season mark of 2.36. Kershaw allowed four homers overall tonight, but he otherwise seemed to dominate with location and sharp breaking stuff. I think it's safe to say that he was just really hyped in that moment, and weren't we all?

LA's big lead was down to 7-4 when the three-time Cy Young Award victor left, but the suspense didn't last: Turner and the 104-win Dodgers added two more runs in the eighth, capping a 12-hit performance.

Ray was 6-0, including two victories over the Dodgers, with a 2.28 ERA after being activated from the disabled list on August 24.

"I'm definitely confident that he's worked out his issues", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said earlier this week. Los Angeles' first five batters reached base, punctuated by Turner's shot and Puig's line-drive double that scored rookie Cody Bellinger.

Interestingly enough, Arizona won two of those three short starts.

Ray was supposed to start this series opener, but was pressed into relief against the Rockies when ace Zack Greinke faltered - and Walker couldn't come through in his place. No one should blame Lovullo, because winning the elimination game there is the most important thing. "They hit a couple of mistakes and unfortunately, we never got grounded".

In the eighth, Seager tripled in pinch-hitter Austin Barnes who led off with a single. Breaking their playoff drought has created lots of good moments for the team and their fans, this year holding the best record in baseball hope to add to those moments as they face the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Turner finished the game with five RBI, tying a Dodgers postseason record shared by Pedro Guerrero and Davey Lopes.
