Cody Bellinger, Dodgers Complete Sweep of Diamondbacks, Advance to NLCS

Cody Bellinger, Dodgers Complete Sweep of Diamondbacks, Advance to NLCS

Kenley Jansen earned his second save of the series as the closer appeared in all three games for the Dodgers of the NLDS.

Dodgers right-hander Yu Darvish (10-12, 3.86 ERA) will oppose Greinke when the teams meet in Game 3 of the best-of-five series at Chase Field on Monday, after the Dodgers outscored Arizona 17-10 in the first two games at Dodger Stadium. And they did it the way they've performed all season long: With consistent pitching and hitting.

Bellinger drove in the Dodgers' first run with a ground out in the first inning, then added a solo home run in the fifth. L.A. has power hitters up and down their lineup - six players hit more than 20 home runs this year - but they need Bellinger hitting the way he did earlier this season.

The Arizona Diamondbacks were secretly one of baseball's best stories, a rags-to-riches tale that began past year, when they thought they were a contender and stumbled drunkenly down a canyonside.

Paulo Dybala caused something of a stir last month when he claimed it is hard to play alongside Messi, as they perform very similar roles at club level.

Cubs-Nationals: If Monday's battle for momentum in the best-of-five series wasn't tantalizing enough, there were also lingering questions about Washington starter Max Scherzer's readiness and how Cubs left-hander Jose Quintana - who came over from the White Sox in July - would handle his first playoff appearance.

A Diamondbacks win forces game 4 Tuesday.

NOTE: Start times are yet to be determined.

Clayton Kershaw has meant so much for the Dodgers in his career.
