Updated MLB Playoff bracket 2017: Dodgers advance to NLCS

11 October 2017

The Dodgers play the victor between the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals. They'll await the victor of the Cubs-Nationals series in their attempt to reach the World Series for the first time since 1988.

Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger was one of the best stories in baseball this season, hitting 39 home runs. The only D-backs run came on Daniel Descalso's two-out solo homer in the fifth inning. Lovullo admitted he didn't think the Dodgers played their best ball.

"I had a lot of friends and family in the stands", said Bellinger, whose rooting section did not include his father, Clay, a firefighter in Gilbert, who had to work. The younger Bellinger put the Dodgers on the board in the first with an RBI groundout that brought in Chris Taylor, who'd ripped a 109 miles per hour leadoff double off Greinke.

Arizona took a 2-0 first-inning lead against Hill.

Los Angeles prevailed in Game 2 of the series by a count of 8-5 at home Saturday night.

Referendum in Catalonia: demonstration at the European parliament
The region, home to 7.5 million people with their own language and cultural traditions, accounts for a fifth of Spain's economy. Puigdemont himself hinted at the declaration Sunday night to Catalan TV3, but he remained vague.

Bellinger flashed the leather on Monday night, too.

The Dodgers' 1-16 skid from late August into September seemed odd while it was happening.

Darvish, who has made mechanical adjustments and tightened up his repetoire since going to the Dodgers before the trade deadline, sliced through the D-backs lineup easily through five innings, retiring 13 hitters in a row. While Greinke slogged through five-plus frames, Darvish whizzed through his.

Ray had been outstanding in five regular-season starts against the Dodgers, but he had just two days of rest after pitching in relief during Arizona's wild-card win over Colorado, and the left-hander struggled mightily with his control from the first inning. Between the two delays, Roberts must have decided that he'd gotten enough from his 31-year-old righty and turned things over to the bullpen.

Some of baseball's norms just don't apply to the exuberant Puig. David Peralta followed by grounding into a double play, and a Ketel Marte grounded out to end the inning. After the first couple of innings if you told me he'd get to the sixth, I really wouldn't have believed you. The Dodgers won 104 games this season and took the NL West title for the fifth straight year, and in two of those seasons, including this one, the Diamondbacks were runners-up.

He said that it was hard to believe that the weapons and ammunition found in his possession were acquired by him alone. Ms Henry said it was hard to comprehend how Ms Danley was caught up in the worst mass murder in modern U.S. history.

And just like that, the Arizona Diamondbacks' season is over.

With the victory, Darvish became just the fourth Japanese born pitcher to win a playoff game as a starter, joining Daisuke Matsuzaka, Hiroki Kuroda, and Masahiro Tanaka.

The trouble began when Taylor smoked that leadoff double into the leftfield corner on Greinke's sixth pitch. Tommy La Stella led off the inning with a walk, and Martin went to second on a bunt. With the bases loaded in the top of the third inning, Greinke would get out of the jam not allowing a run. But despite walking five hitters and needing 88 pitches to get through the first four innings, he kept the score at 1-0.

On Monday, in his first appearance in two weeks, he faced a lineup of Diamondbacks' hitters than ranked No. 2 in the NL in runs scored.

Rafael Devers cut the Astros' deficit to one with an inside-the-park home run, his second of the playoffs, to lead off the Boston ninth against closer Ken Giles.
