Taylor went to third on Justin Turner's flyout and scored on Bellinger's slow grounder to first for a 1-0 lead.

"There are a lot of reasons why we didn't win these games, but I think the bottom line is they're just the better team, " reliever Archie Bradley said. "They came out and beat us".

The LA Dodgers will attempt to end their National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday as they look to gain a third straight win to progress to the next round of the postseason. The D-Backs were not happy about that at all, with utility infielder Willie Bloomquist famously saying, "I would expect someone to act with a little more class".

The Chicago Cubs edged ahead of the Washington Nationals 2-1 in their NLDS, courtesy of a 2-1 win.

The last time the Los Angeles Dodgers departed the lush coastlines of Southern California for the Sonoran desert, it was late August, with temperatures here up in the low teens - as in 113 and 114 degrees Fahrenheit - and the Dodgers melted like ice cream.

In the fifth, Bellinger added to the Dodgers' lead, ripping a 3-1 Greinke change-up to left-center field for a solo home run.

"You kind of get the sense we're back in June or July", said starting pitcher Alex Wood, referring to the stretch when the Dodgers were at their best, going 41-10 in those two months and building a division lead that reached 21 games by late August.

Desert baseball is a different animal, all burnt orange and Sedona red, mist machines on the sidewalks along Randy Johnson Way, 84 degrees outside at first pitch, but an air-conditioned 74 inside, even with the retractable roof open and exposing the black sky. "We have that focus again, every single player, on every single pitch".

The last four times the Dodgers played for the NL pennant in the past decade, they came up short of their first World Series since 1988. "That's in the past", Jansen said of the teamwide slump. "We just couldn't get it done". "It was a big hit for us". We know how hard it is, and we aren't taking anything for granted.

It was about reverting to the style of play that helped them win 52 out of 61 games at one point this summer. This team will not move onto the NLCS and await for the victor of the Nationals/Cubs series.

Roberts' expensive roster shows a remarkable affinity for teamwork and selflessness.

"Being around this team for long enough, this is where we expect to be", ace Clayton Kershaw said.

Despite the Dodgers quality at-bats and Darvish's dominant performance, the game was still 1-0 until Cody took over. Corey Seager and Yasiel Puig each drove in two runs as well.

The sweep allows Roberts to set his rotation in any way he chooses. The 31-year-old from Japan has a 5.40 ERA while losing both his career postseason starts but the Dodgers acquired him from the Texas Rangers to boost up their playoff-caliber pitching.
