Diamondbacks guard pool to prevent Dodgers from swimming

Diamondbacks guard pool to prevent Dodgers from swimming

Darvish gave up one run and struck out seven in five-plus innings to send the Dodgers to the NLCS against the victor of the Chicago Cubs-Washington Nationals series. "They did that the whole series". The D-Backs particularly seemed to have the Dodgers' number late in the season, tagging Los Angeles with six of the losses they suffered during the surprising stretch during which they lost 16 of 17 games. He played good defense in both games as well, but he'd yet to break out. But the solo home run to left center off D-backs ace Zack Greinke in the fifth inning was what the Dodgers have been waiting to see.

In the second year of a $206.5 million, six-year contract, Greinke was 1-2 with a 3.65 ERA in four starts against Los Angeles this year.

They'll face either the Nats or the Cubs, depending on the outcome of their NLDS (with Game 4 set for Tuesday night at 5:30 PM ET on TBS), but that'll all get sorted out soon enough.

Bellinger flashed the leather on Monday night, too. Thanks to one snagged homer and another solo shot the Yankees pulled out the 1-0 win.

Darvish was good, lasting five innings and giving up just the one run. Darvish gave up two hits and no walks. While Greinke slogged through five-plus frames, Darvish whizzed through his.

Sainz caught off-guard by news of early switch to Renault
Renault will replace British driver Jolyon Palmer with Spaniard Carlos Sainz for the last four races of the Formula One season, the team said on Saturday.

Maybe the Snakes were more anxious about random Dodgers fan trying their luck.

The Diamondbacks had three hits and four baserunners in all.

In all, Darvish struck out seven and generated 15 swings and misses. "How I pitch is different".

The D-backs sent Archie Bradley to the mound in the seventh, after retiring Seager and Turner, Bradley walked Bellinger and Puig struck out Barnes to strand the baserunners.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have marched into the National League Championship Series twice before during their current five-season postseason streak, but never with such quiet intensity and blunt force.

Barron bill would change Columbus Day to 'Indigenous People's Day'
The very next day, Salt Lake City, Utah , made a similar decision, followed by Austin, Texas . Columbus Day became a federal holiday in 1937 through President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Kenley Jansen pitched around a one-out single to David Peralta in the ninth inning for his second save of the series. The Dodgers would continue threaten over the next three innings but Greinke was able to navigate his way out of danger.

Iannetta got the start on Saturday, but after a travel day on Sunday, Jeff Mathis will get back behind the plate for Game 3. Even after four days of rest following his 58-pitch outing, the 33-year-old righty was anything but sharp in Game 3, though he did his best to keep the Diamondbacks in the game.

And that begins with pitching aggressively.

The club continued to work the count and forced Greinke to throw nine 3-ball counts into the 5th inning. Darvish has a 2.44 ERA in 92 1/3 road innings this year. But two fastballs sailed inside, hitting the nob of Christian Walker's bat and then the batter himself, leading Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts to go to his bullpen. But despite walking five hitters and needing 88 pitches to get through the first four innings, he kept the score at 1-0.

The theme of the Diamondbacks this postseason was early exits for their starters.

Ohio State's Nick Bosa Appears To Have Enjoyed Iowa State's Flag Plant
According to the Des Moines Register, he's the first Iowa State player since 1971 to get significant action both ways in a game. The touchdown came after Kansas State's Matthew McCrane missed a 53-yard field goal attempt that bounced off the left upright.

After the HR, he tossed 2.2 scoreless innings but that one pitch almost cost the Astros the game. We love it when Zack pitches.
