Dodgers: Ranking the best NLDS moments in Dodger history

Arizona Diamondbacks Confident As They Begin NLDS Against Dodgers

The lefty gave up four home runs - all solo shots - but lasted 6.1 innings while striking out four and walking three.

On Friday the Los Angeles Dodgers will embark on a new journey: the postseason. By advancing to the division series, the Arizona Diamondbacks can throw southpaws Robbie Ray and Patrick Corbin against the Dodgers, along with their ace Zack Greinke, who defected from Los Angeles in free agency.

"I feel like winning the NL West five years in a row leads to complacency, especially for this team, for this organization, even for the fans", said Andre Ethier, an outfielder on seven previous Dodgers playoff teams since 2006.

Turner's five RBIs tied the Dodgers' postseason record, set by Davey Lopes in the 1978 World Series and tied three years later by Pedro Guerrero in that season's Fall Classic.

L.A. center fielder Chris Taylor led off the game with a single, which was followed by a Corey Seager walk. Turner has reached base safely in 16 of his last 17 postseason games, hitting.397 during that stretch.

Hill (12-8) allowed opponents to bat.203 in his first full Dodgers season, showing off veteran guile and pitch versatility while battling blisters. His second was 95.

The Dodgers finished the season with the best record in the Major League Baseball, which ensures that they will have home field advantage throughout the Playoffs.

This may seem contradictory to what we just said about Kershaw. It also became evident early on that he didn't have his best curveball, a signature weapon on many of Kershaw's best nights. Here's the latest Diamondbacks vs. Dodgers game preview with Major League Baseball odds, game time, TV channel, and live streaming options for viewers. Afterward, the long-ball barrage was mostly shrugged off by the Dodgers in the afterglow of their win. He went jogging back to the mound for the seventh, and as far as the Dodgers were concerned, the entire inning belonged to him. One could think of this fact in two different ways. After throwing 34 pitches Wednesday, he would be going on two days of rest if he took the mound for Game 2, although Ray said he felt Thursday as if he were coming off a day when he threw a between-starts bullpen session.
