The National League Divisional series is not going the way that the Arizona Diamondbacks were hoping it to go.

Currently down 2-0, the Arizona Diamondbacks will need to win Monday night in order to keep the world series hopes alive.

If these predictions, as bold as they are, come true then they will be able to see a game four against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

1. Greinke plays dominant

Last Wednesday Zack Greinke played in the Wild Card game against the Colorado Rockies and did not look like himself.

In that game, he was unable to get out of the fourth inning and he gave up four earned runs.

This is something I see changing in Monday’s game, Greinke will go back to his dominance at home where he was 13-1 with a sub-three ERA.

During tonight’s game, I see Zack going 6.2 innings with 2 runs and 5 hits against him before giving the ball to the bullpen.
