NLDS:Diamondbacks 11 – Dodgers 2
The National League Division Series (NLDS) between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers has been a thrilling spectacle. The Dodgers, who had a superior regular season record of 100-62, were the favorites entering the series. However, the Diamondbacks have shown their mettle, especially in Game 1.
In the opening game of the series, the Diamondbacks made a strong statement. They took an early lead with a 6-0 score before the Dodgers even had a chance to bat. This included a three-run blast by Moreno and a score by Evan Longoria. Moreno returned to the lineup after taking a swing to the head from B. Turang bat in the Brewers wild card series. The Answerbacks’ performance led to an early exit for the Dodgers’ ace pitcher, Clayton Kershaw.
Despite this setback, the Dodgers are expected to have Kershaw pitch again in the series. The next game in the series is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 9 at Dodger Stadium with starting pitchers RHP Zac Gallen for the Diamondbacks and RHP Bobby Miller for the Dodgers.
This series is not just about the present, but also about past performances. Among players with more than 25 at-bats against Kershaw, Christian Walker of the Diamondbacks has the best OPS at 1.0694. His five home runs are also the most anyone has ever hit against Kershaw.
The outcome of this series is still uncertain, but one thing is clear: both teams are giving their all in this exciting showdown. Stay tuned for more updates as this thrilling series unfolds. Vamos The Answerbacks Yo!!!!
