Offense The Storyline of Dodgers vs D-Backs

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks continued the offensive output we have seen early and often during this postseason in Game 1 of the NLDS Friday. The two clubs combining for 20 hits and 14 runs, which is the sixth time in the last eight meetings between the Dodgers and D-Backs that they topped the closing total.

  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Dodgers’ last 6 games in the playoffs at home.
  • The Diamondbacks are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games in the playoffs.

The Dodgers will start 37-year-old Rich Hill, who is red-hot entering the postseason. Hill posted a stellar 1.86 ERA in his past five starts and pitched 7.0 innings of no-run ball in his most recent start. The 12-year veteran has faced the D-backs four times this season, holding Arizona to two or fewer earned runs on three occasions.

Robbie Ray will take to the bump just three days after pitching 2.1 innings of relief in the NL wild-card game. Luckily for the D-backs, the lefty has dominated the Dodgers throughout the regular season. In five starts against the Dodgers, Ray allowed just eight earned runs while racking up 53 strikeouts in 31.2 innings.
