The rosters are set and now the Arizona Diamondbacks will have to battle if they want to edge the Los Angeles Dodgers in the first game of the NLDS. 

October is a different ballgame, but the Arizona Diamondbacks have edged the Los Angeles Dodgers all season long and it is time for that to come to fruition.

Clayton Kershaw is taking the mound for Game 1 as anyone could have predicted, but going up against Taijuan Walker was a wrench most probably didn’t see coming.

Both teams also have depth on their bench. However, the Wild Card games required a lot of bullpen across the board. But, in the first two divisional games, the starters didn’t quite struggle the same way.

Aside from the goose egg the New York Yankees put up against the Cleveland Indians, most teams have come out with their bats swinging.

Prior to Friday’s games, 45 runs have been scored across the first four postseason games. My first prediction changes that.
