"I haven't pitched in the postseason, obviously", he said, "but I'd like to say I just want to go out there, compete, stick to my strength and give our team the best chance to win".

First #postseason homer for @Cody_Bellinger?

The Dodgers clinched the best-of-five divisional series in three games.

Not long after the final out of Game 3, players embraced and congratulated each other in the Diamondbacks clubhouse.

The Dodgers would take a 2-0 lead add a run in the fifth inning on a Bellinger solo shot to left center.

Greinke has been ineffective over his last three turns - giving up 14 runs in 11 2/3 innings - and lasted just 3 2/3 frames in the wild-card contest against the Colorado Rockies.

Arizona won its last six regular-season games against the Dodgers, but Los Angeles dominated its NL West rival when it mattered most, sweeping an opponent in the postseason for the first time since the 2009 NLDS against St. Louis.

Darvish's second start after the trade was at Arizona, where he went seven innings, allowing two runs and five hits and striking out 10 to get the win in an 8-6 Dodger victory. He struck out four and walked five.

Maeda was superb during the Division Series, capped by a 1-2-3 eighth inning with two strikeouts Monday night, and afterward his teammates raved about Maeda's selfless acceptance of his new role. The Dodgers rolled the Diamondbacks to extend their series lead to 2-0.

Maybe the Snakes were more anxious about random Dodgers fan trying their luck. Darvish was pitching on 13 days' rest, and the extra days off really seemed to help him in the desert.

The trouble began when Taylor smoked that leadoff double into the leftfield corner on Greinke's sixth pitch. "Outside of the first three or four (outings) once he came over, he's been very good and continuing to get better".

The 33-year-old righty burned another 25 pitches in the second inning, thanks in part to an eight-pitch walk by Chase Utley and a pesky six-pitch at-bat by Darvish, who struck out.

In the bottom of the fifth, Bellinger made this incredible grab in front of the Dodgers dugout to end the inning. But despite walking five hitters and needing 88 pitches to get through the first four innings, he kept the score at 1-0.

The Diamondbacks' first-year manager, Torey Lovullo, expressed confidence that Greinke, his ace pitcher, would keep the series alive on Monday. Seager walked and Turner singled with one out, and Yasiel Puig walked with two outs, but Greinke got Barnes to ground to end the inning. 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.

After the HR, he tossed 2.2 scoreless innings but that one pitch almost cost the Astros the game.
