Justin Turner's lifts Los Angeles Dodgers to Game 1 win vs

Archie Bradley

Looking to back up their season-best 104 wins, the Los Angeles Dodgers begin their 2017 postseason campaign against the NL West rival Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Baez finished with a 2.95 ERA and 64 strikeouts in 64 innings but allowed nine runs on nine hits and seven walks over his final 8 1/3 innings this season.

Friday night's Game 1 of the National League Division series offered more proof that there is no more dominant starter in baseball right now. The action continues with Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday, Oct. 7. 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.

Justin Turner's 3-run home run in the first inning paced the Dodgers' offense that night, as they hid Kershaw's lackluster performance behind a 9-run outburst. Boasting a 3.49 ERA and 1.33 WHIP, he can be wild at times (3.5 BB per 9), but he can also be filthy at times (11 starts on the season with one earned run or less).

"He gave up four solo homers but who cares", Turner said.

"I don't know what that was", Cody Bellinger said.

Walker allowed a total of four runs in the inning after surrendering an RBI double to Yasiel Puig, and needed 48 pitches to finish the first frame.




Ray was 6-0, including two victories over the Dodgers, with a 2.28 ERA after being activated from the disabled list on August 24.

"He's called "the Wild Horse" for a reason", said Manager Dave Roberts, who benched Puig twice in September, but now was smiling at his antics. You can't go wrong with either pitcher in this spot, and while I like the Dodgers to win this series, the value is going to be on the Arizona Diamondbacks and the heavy plus money, assuming that's what we're getting here. Sure enough, he gave up back-to-back rockets into the left-field seats to Adam Rosales and Ketel Marte.

Los Angeles added a couple insurance runs in the eighth inning: A Corey Seager triple down the right-field line scored Austin Barnes, and Turner provided his fifth RBI of the game with a single. Ray had to come on in relief after ace Zack Greinke couldn't get through four innings against the Rockies.

"No regrets whatsoever", he said. It includes 12 pitchers (including more than one struggling reliever) but no baserunning specialist. He just never reached a rhythm.

"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. J.D. Martinez homered in the sixth after Paul Goldschmidt grounded into a double play.
