First pitch of game three of the NLDS between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers is almost here! Here is what you need to know before the game begins
This is it Arizona Diamondbacks fans! It is WIN or go HOME.
The D-backs enter tonight’s contest with a 6-0 record in win-or-go-home postseason games at Chase Field. After dropping games one and two in Los Angeles, the Snakes can save their season for at least one more night on Monday.
Game 1 was a disappointment, but I did not expect the D-backs to beat Clayton Kershaw at home, even with his postseason struggles. The D-backs offense actually got to Kershaw but a poor performance from Taijuan Walker set the tone.
Robbie Ray simply was not the same pitcher in Game 2. The southpaw could not command his fastball or slider and walks, a hit batter and three wild pitches haunted him. The D-backs offense used the long ball to comeback but a poor outing by Ray on short rest set the tone for the end result.
Try to contain your emotions, I dare you. Anxiety, confidence and excitement. We are all feeling it.
Be sure to check back for more pregame coverage and stay tuned tomorrow to find out if we will keep writing about the 2017 season.
