The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Saturday in game two of the NLDS at Dodger Stadium. But when Greinke failed to get through four innings, Ray was forced into service and pitched 2 1/3 innings, giving up two hits and one run. He was dominant against Los Angeles during the regular season, going 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA in five starts, striking out 53 in 31 2/3 innings.
In a battle of left-handers, Rich Hill will take the mound for Los Angeles, while Robbie Ray will do the same for Arizona.
Justin Turner's 3-run home run in the first inning paced the Dodgers' offense that night, as they hid Kershaw's lackluster performance behind a 9-run outburst. Hill is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 22 strikeouts in his postseason career.
Kershaw mostly cruised through six innings, giving up a solo homers to A.J.
"I don't know what that was", Cody Bellinger said. Houston leads its best-of-five matchup 2-0 after a pair of 8-2 wins, including a three-homer outburst from Jose Altuve on Thursday and long balls from Carlos Correa and George Springer on Friday. So we haven't quite determined the Game 2 starter, but we're going to drill down to that as quickly as we possibly can.
"He's called "the Wild Horse" for a reason", said Manager Dave Roberts, who benched Puig twice in September, but now was smiling at his antics.
Ray was supposed to start this series opener, but was pressed into relief against the Rockies when ace Zack Greinke faltered - and Walker couldn't come through in his place.
NOTES: Despite having 59 career postseason games under his belt, Dodgers 2B Chase Utley was not in the starting lineup, INF Logan Forsythe, on getting the nod despite never having played in a postseason game.
And in the seventh, Arizona continued to rake, getting back-to-back bombs from Ketel Marte and Jeff Mathis off of Kershaw-bringing the D-Backs to within three.
"Forty-eight pitches (in) one inning is a lot for any pitcher to absorb", Lovullo said. A pinch hit lead off single by Austin Barnes was cashed in on a Corey Seager RBI triple, Turner followed with and RBI single that gave the Dodgers a 9-5 lead. The red-bearded slugger tied a Dodgers record for most RBIs in a postseason game, sharing it with Pedro Guerrero and Davey Lopes. Meanwhile, the Arizona position players went a combined 6 of 29, with J.D. In a year when teams collectively scored more runs than in any year since 2008, the Dodgers gave up the fewest runs as a franchise since 2003.

Lee Nelson , whose real name is Simon Brodkin , handed May a P45 tax form, the British equivalent of giving someone "a pink slip". He was attacked by many in his party, with three fellow Tory MPs calling for him to quit.
He rebounded from a sub-par first year in the desert, pitching over 200 innings with a 17-7 record, 3.20 ERA, and 1.072 WHIP. Staring down a six-run deficit after three frames, the Rockies didn't go down quietly, much to their credit.
Trump would "hold off on recommending that Congress reimpose sanctions on Iran that would abrogate the agreement". Senate sources tell me they don't expect Republicans Jeff Flake or Susan Collins to support sanctions either.
