Puig powers Dodgers to 2-game lead in NLDS

Dodgers’ Dave Roberts On Yasiel Puig Pulling Kenta Maeda And More Alex Perez 10/08/2017 News

It could have been a moment in the game to inspire hope.

That 1-16 stretch the Dodgers endured in late August and September, the one that came out of nowhere when they were 55 games above.500 and ended any talk of them being remembered as one of the greatest teams in history, now looks like an aberration - albeit one that lasted almost three weeks and forced some serious introspection as the playoffs loomed.

The Dodgers acquired Darvish on July 31, and since then he has been trying to make various adjustments to get his form up. "We get him out of there". They come out with a chip on their shoulder, and they want to get the job done. "Eight wins after this doesn't seem like so much, but I know from experience it's a long road just to win four more". Perez of USA Today prior to Game 3 the team would not jump in the pool if they clinched an NLCS spot in Arizona.

"He was throwing a lot of strikes, so he was ahead in the count a lot, " Goldschmidt said about Darvish.

His departure came suddenly. "From the first pitch, there was a plan in place, and we executed". On that night, he struck out 10 and but needed 106 pitches. "Usually I keep that stuff behind the scenes and say that stuff, but just my emotions got me there".

"I support (Roberts') decision", Darvish said through a translator. He entered Game 3 only 1 for 10 in the postseason, with six strikeouts. Offense wasn't expected to be an issue upon the return to Chase Field, but Yu Darvish blew up that line of thinking.

Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger, a Scottsdale native and a graduate of Chandler Hamilton High School, made the D-backs pay at the plate and in the field. He threw 71 pitches through three innings, and 88 through four.

Logan Forsythe, getting the start at second base over Chase Utley for the second night in a row, had three hits, scored two runs, drove in one and stole a base, part of an offensive onslaught by Los Angeles that followed a nine-run effort in Game 1.

The trouble began when Taylor smoked that leadoff double into the leftfield corner on Greinke's sixth pitch.

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

"If you've got to pick one guy to stop this situation we're in, I think we've found the right guy in Zack Greinke", Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. "That's one thing that sticks out", catcher Jeff Mathis said of Greinke's rough start. "I respect the hell out of it".

The final score of the game came off the bat of Austin Barnes, though, as he put one into the seats-ultimately ending the night for Zack Greinke-who lasted just over five innings while giving up three runs.

The China Open final between Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios will be played not before 7:30pm local time, 5pm IST, 11:30am GMT. Writing for the playersvoice.com.au website, Kyrgios also called the final "a disappointing end to an otherwise good week".

What are you gonna do?

Los Angeles' defense has also been superb, as exemplified by severalhugeplays from Bellinger in Game 3 at Arizona. Many did so with eyes red.

Roberts and Darvish were backed by good relief pitching out of the bullpen as Tony Cingrani took over for Darvish in the 6th and induced a rally-killing double play against David Peralta. Neither did his Diamondbacks. "I'm ready now to go at any time".

"This whole season has been insane", Bellinger said, adding: "It was really cool coming back here to Chase Field".

"We didn't do enough".
