Dodgers advance to NLCS, sweep Diamondbacks


Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Zack Greinke does long throws during practice prior to Game 3 of baseball's National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, in Phoenix.

Dodgers right-hander Yu Darvish (10-12, 3.86 ERA) will oppose Greinke when the teams meet in Game 3 of the best-of-five series at Chase Field on Monday, after the Dodgers outscored Arizona 17-10 in the first two games at Dodger Stadium.

From there Greinke walked a batter in the following three innings. Turner went 1 for 4 in Game 2 and popped out with the bases loaded to end the seventh, but the Dodgers didn't even need their slugging third baseman. The left-hander walked four of nine batters early on, and the Dodgers didn't get their first hit until Forsythe, Barnes and Puig delivered consecutive singles in the fourth in a go-ahead rally.

Cody Bellinger, Dodgers sweep Diamondbacks to return to NLCS
The Dodgers ended the series against the D-Backs with a 3-1 victory in Monday's Game 3, and rookie Cody Bellinger led the way. The Dodgers are moving on to the NLCS after completing a three-game sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday in Phoenix.

The imbalance of solo home runs was enough, though, and the Dodgers will not be bounced from the first round of the postseason ignominiously after their historic regular season.

The Diamondbacks could only muster one run in the game and it come off the bat of Daniel Descalso in the form of a solo home run. He was hit on the bill of the helmet two pitches later. From the fifth inning on the Dodger bullpen allowed just one hit and struck out four. David Peralta would immediately ground into a double play, taking away any momentum the D-Backs had.
