Former Rangers ace Yu Darvish earns first post-season win for Dodgers

Former Rangers ace Yu Darvish earns first post-season win for Dodgers

The trio reached base a combined nine times, and Los Angeles turned an early 2-0 deficit into a 7-2 advantage with three rallies, capped by a four-run surge in the fifth.

The Dodgers, better in every facet of the game, dispatched the Diamondbacks with a 3-1 win Monday night in Game 3, behind five solid innings from Yu Darvish, solo homers by Cody Bellinger and Austin Barnes and four innings of exquisite bullpen work, and will head back to L.A.to await the victor of the Chicago Cubs-Washington Nationals series, whom they will host in Game 1 of the NL Championship Series on Saturday at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers had a strong showing against the Diamondbacks in all three of their meetings. If you get beat at home and the other team clinches, just wear it. Let them in the pool.

The right-hander was traded to the Dodgers on July 31 for three prospects.

Game one of the NLCS will take place on Saturday, October 14th at Dodger Stadium.

NOTES: Both the Dodgers and Diamondbacks altered their lineups from Game 1 on Friday. Peralta's one-out ninth-inning single off Jansen was the only baserunner they allowed while striking out four.

After all, almost everything Roberts has done in the first two games of the National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks has turned to gold. It is the third NLCS trip in the last five years for Los Angeles.

"Being around this team for long enough, this is where we expect to be", ace Clayton Kershaw said. "It was a big hit for us". They did a great job of putting this team together. They did so under new management on the field and in the front office, and became one of the surprises of the Major League Baseball season with their unexpected success.

Manager Dave Roberts has said of Darvish: "I think that for him it was more of coming over here and trying to figure out why he can't be consistent".

"I wasn't able to contribute much in last year's postseason, but this year I have, so I'm extremely happy", Maeda said.

Despite throwing 103 pitches through five innings, Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo sent Greinke (0-1) back to the mound for the top of the sixth inning, and he was promptly greeted by old batterymate Austin Barnes who crushed a curveball into the left field seats for his first home run of the postseason. Greinke is 13-1 at home this year with a 2.87 ERA over 116 innings. With the only RBI in the game, Cody did what Cody does and went yard to left-center to extend the Dodgers lead to 2-0.

The performance by Darvish provided more reason to believe the Dodgers might have the staying power, but his was not the only one.

For the series, the Dodgers bullpen allowed four runs (three earned) in 11 ⅔ innings, with a 10/1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

In the bottom half of the sixth inning, Darvish hit Christian Walker on the brim of his helmet, in what was a scary moment, luckily Walker was okay. A four pitch walk to Puig loaded the bases for catcher Austin Barnes, but Greinke was able to escape the jam. Greinke faced 3-2 counts against five of his first eight batters and was at 54 pitches through two innings.
