Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers do just enough for win

1:28 | MLB         These are the five best contracts in baseball

The Dodgers face Arizona starter Robbie Ray in Game 2 tonight. Ray had a 2.40 ERA in the month of September and gained playoff experience in the wild card game against the Rockies in which he threw 34 pitches. He's stayed largely healthy, delivering the second-most innings of his 13-year career and posting a 3.32 earned-run average, giving the Dodgers offense a chance in most games. After having split the wild-card games, I'm 3-1 (+2.00 units) as the National League Divisional Series play begins. Los Angeles counters with lefty Rich Hill (12-8, 3.32), who had a 2.77 ERA at home this year. There will be a day off Sunday as the teams head to Phoenix, so Greinke will have his usual four days of rest between starts.

It didn't start off that great for the Dodgers as they failed to get past the NLDS round their first four tries, going 0-4 between 1995-2006. Stripling pitched more relief innings than any Dodgers pitcher this season but he had a 6.08 ERA over his final 13 appearances.

"I thought he was outstanding and challenged guys, pitching with the lead, like he should", Turner said. "We'll regroup and be ready for (game two on Saturday)".

Despite having a five run lead at the time, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts brought out closing pitcher Kenley Jansen to close the door on the D-backs. (Zack) Godley, Zack (Greinke), obviously has had some success, and Ray has really got the best of us. Los Angeles' first five batters reached base, punctuated by Turner's shot and Puig's line-drive double that scored rookie Cody Bellinger.

Roberts removed Kershaw after he allowed homers to Ketel Marte and Jeff Mathis on back-to-back pitches with one out in the seventh. Luckily, those two going 0-4 didn't hinder the Dodgers too much because Justin Turner, Corey Seager, and Yasiel Puig carried the team on their backs and collected all nine runs batted in.

"No regrets whatsoever", he said. The game has a scheduled start time of 10.30 p.m. ET, and takes place from Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. "They hit a couple mistakes and unfortunately he never got grounded". But he escaped that inning by striking out Diamondbacks sluggers Paul Goldschmidt and J.D.

In the eighth, Seager tripled in pinch-hitter Austin Barnes who led off with a single.

"We wanted to put the pitcher's back against the wall", Turner said, whose five RBIs in this game tied a Brooklyn-Los Angeles franchise mark for most RBIs in one post-season contest. Afterward, the long-ball barrage was mostly shrugged off by the Dodgers in the afterglow of their win.
