Dodgers sweep away D-backs, advance to NLCS

First #postseason homer for @Cody_Bellinger?

The Chicago Cubs edged ahead of the Washington Nationals 2-1 in their NLDS, courtesy of a 2-1 win.

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

"I've been in the bullpen a couple of times, just in case", he said, referring to the Wild Card game and division series, "so it's a little hard trying to find when to throw, when not to throw but I've been able to throw a couple of times (in the bullpen); got to throw the last day in L.A., so I'm fresh, ready to go and excited to get the ball".

The Weather Service said showers and thunderstorms are likely Thursday night to Friday night , with over an inch of rain possible. Lows through this period will be in the mid-60s with partly cloudy conditions and have south winds at 5-10 miles per hour .

In came Kenley Jansen, looking to end the series, the Dodgers closer started the inning off by striking out Grégor Blanco.

Greinke will be on the mound when the best-of-five series shifts to Arizona for Game 3 on Monday night after the Dodgers raked Diamondbacks pitching to take the first two games in Los Angeles. Corbin allowed a combined eight runs (six earned) on 16 hits with five walks in 10.2 innings. He was also was tremendously efficient with his slider (27 pitches, 21 strikes, five swings and misses), and his cutter (21 pitches, 15 strikes, four swings and misses); the latter was a pitch the Dodgers encouraged him to emphasize.

The Red Sox hosted the Astros to Fenway Park and avoided elimination with their 10-3 win, bringing the series to 2-1 in favor of the Astros. He will face Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark (13-11, 4.57 ERA) with the Cubs 2-1 up.

"At the end of the day we won 104 games, the most of any Dodgers team in L.A.", Wood said. He threw 71 pitches through three innings, and 88 through four. He gave up a leadoff double to Chris Taylor in the first inning, then walked Corey Seager. His ERA is a full run better at Wrigley Field than on the road (2.90 versus 3.87). Logan Forsythe and Austin Barnes had the key hits in that pivotal fifth inning, and Puig followed up to drive in two more runs.

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. Tuesday night's effort from Zack Greinke was the longest outing for the Snakes with five innings. 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, his bold philosophies were on full display, beginning with a seemingly controversial lifting of Darvish after he hit pinch-hitter Christian Walker in the helmet to lead off the sixth. "We were relentless every single pitch".
