D'backs look to former Dodger

Dodgers right-hander Yu Darvish (10-12, 3.86 ERA) will oppose Greinke when the teams meet in Game 3 of the best-of-five series at Chase Field on Monday, after the Dodgers outscored Arizona 17-10 in the first two games at Dodger Stadium.

Through his first two postseason games, Cody Bellinger had shown very little of the form that produced an NL rookie record 39 homers and a.267/.352/.581 line. In the National League Championship Series, the Dodgers will face either the Chicago Cubs or the Washington Nationals. All three games went deep into the night, forcing fans on the East Coast to choose baseball or sleep.

Later on, Bellinger was at it again in the fifth hitting.

Ethier considered the kindergarten math - four more wins to get to the World Series, eight to win it all - and could say with more conviction than any other Dodger how big those numbers truly are.

Kenley Jansen pitched around a one-out single to David Peralta in the ninth inning for his second save of the series.

The last time the Los Angeles Dodgers departed the lush coastlines of Southern California for the Sonoran desert, it was late August, with temperatures here up in the low teens - as in 113 and 114 degrees Fahrenheit - and the Dodgers melted like ice cream. The D-Backs jumped out to an early lead with Paul Goldschmidt hitting a two-run homer off Rich Hill in the first inning.

The Dodgers' 1-16 skid from late August into September seemed odd while it was happening. The Dodgers have a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-five divisional round following an 8-5 win over Arizona Saturday night.

Officials at Chase Field made it clear that the Dodgers wouldn't be disrespecting Arizona's home field by jumping in their pool, and celebrating a win at their own expense. He struck out four and walked five. All followed by a 10 pitch at-bat to Yasiel Puig forced Greinke to throw 29 pitches in the first inning. Every Dodger continued to have quality at-bats tonight, making Greinke work hard for those outs. But despite walking five hitters and needing 88 pitches to get through the first four innings, he kept the score at 1-0.

Finally, in his sixth big-league season, Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin will make his postseason debut. Neither Zack Greinke (3.2 innings), Robbie Ray (4.1) nor Taijuan Walker (1.0) was able to complete five innings and therefore put themselves in position to win. He gave up as many as three runs only once. On Greinke's second pitch of the sixth, he served up an 89 miles per hour fastball that Barnes lined 398 feet to leftfield, restoring their two-run lead. Cingrani was backed by Brandon Morrow who toss 1 and 1 1/3 scoreless innings while facing the heart of the Dbacks lineup in the bottom of the 7th. Poor Fernando Rodney, the Diamondbacks closer, not only never got to fire a single arrow, he never even got to pitch in the series.
