We have reached round two of the playoffs in the National League. This is a best of five series between two National League West teams.
The Arizona Diamondbacks make the trip to Los Angeles to take the Dodgers in game one. The Diamondbacks have won the last six games played between the two teams.
The Arizona Diamondbacks won their Wild Card game over the Colorado Rockies which is obviously important because otherwise their season would be over, but they didn’t have everything go their way, and that has hurt their chances in this series.
Robbie Ray was expected to be the starter in this game after Zack Greinke pitched the wild card game, but Greinke struggled and the Diamondbacks were forced to use him just to beat the Rockies.
After the top two starters for the Diamondbacks there is a drop off, so the fact they probably won’t get one of those starters back till game three has to really hurt.
To win this game the Dodgers are going to need to have some success early with the bats. They can’t let Kershaw get locked in early or they will be down 0-1 in this series.
Whoever does end up getting the start for the Diamondbacks is probably going to need to be near perfect to win this game.
Even if he does give up a couple of runs though he needs to try and go deep into the game so they can save the bullpen for the rest of the series.
Los Angeles Dodgers
On the other side of this match up is the Los Angeles Dodgers who finished the season strong winning eight of their last ten games which was huge after the struggles they endured during the last couple of months.
On the mound for the Dodgers is Clayton Kershaw who has been once again one of the best pitchers in all of baseball, even though he dealt with an injury part of the season. He comes into this game with an 18-4 record and an ERA of 2.31.
He has been a little more inconsistent as of late though. In two of his last three starts he has given up three runs or less.
That might not sound like a lot for others but for Kershaw that is a lot.
In his last start against the Dodgers he went seven innings, striking out 11 while giving up only two hits and zero earned runs.
