Dodgers look to take 2-0 lead in National League Division Series

The Arizona Republic reported that Ray claimed to be ready to pitch Game 2, if needed. "They've got great pitching, great hitting, defense, base running - they do it all". Three of those first pitch swings landed the ball over the fence.

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. During that stretch, he boasts a 3.48 ERA and 1.22 WHIP, which are obviously very un-Kershaw like numbers but are still solid for normal humans. An overall decent line that won't reflect how well he threw tonight. "He's got a plus fastball, pounds righties in, he works both sides of the plate, he's got a really good slider". Working with a big lead from the second inning on allowed him the cushion to be human.

"He hit a good pitch", on the homer, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.

In his career, he is 6-3 with a 2.69 ERA in 13 starts against Los Angeles. Ray dominated the Dodgers during the regular season, going 3-0 in five starts with a 2.27 ERA and a whopping 53 strikeouts in 31 2/3 innings.

Kept their foot on the gas. Ray had to come on in relief after ace Zack Greinke couldn't get through four innings against the Rockies. Kershaw has had some fine moments in the postseason, which conveniently gets ignored when commentators drag out the "Kershaw chokes in the postseason" narrative.

Netflix Is Raising Prices Again
Although in somewhat of a classy move, Netflix was raising the price gradually, something they called "un-grandfathering". The price change will roll out to us members over the course of the next several months, according to Netflix .

The Dodgers were able to add three important insurance runs in the bottom of the fourth as Corey Seager, Turner, and Puig all added RBI singles off Zack Godley.

"You couldn't ask for a better start to the game", Kershaw said.

In the eighth, Seager tripled in pinch-hitter Austin Barnes who led off with a single. He has owned them at Dodger Stadium to the tune of striking out 37 batters in only 19.2 innings.

ESPN Chalk's Joe Peta breaks down the NLDS between the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals and offers his pick for the series. Rich Hill takes the mound for the Dodgers, squaring off against Robbie Ray of the D-backs. Down what path would their October narrative lead: that of the dominant Dodgers, or that of doubtable Dodgers?

Again, it wasn't fabulous, but it was enough for a win. It includes 12 pitchers (including more than one struggling reliever) but no baserunning specialist. Having the Diamondbacks on the ropes is what they need, and they need continue to impose their will.
