They'll await the victor of the Cubs-Nationals series in their attempt to reach the World Series for the first time since 1988. Former Dodger Zack Greinke started for the Diamondbacks, but was gone in the sixth after the Barnes home run. He played good defense in both games as well, but he'd yet to break out.

"I had a lot of friends and family in the stands", said Bellinger, whose rooting section did not include his father, Clay, a firefighter in Gilbert, who had to work. He still flipped his bat, sprinted to first and triumphantly pointed back at his dugout, where the cheering Los Angeles Dodgers pointed right back while the crowd chanted his name.

Arizona actually has six homers in the series to just one by the Dodgers, who scored eight runs in Game 2 with only one extra-base hit.

Bellinger flashed the leather on Monday night, too. And, it would put the Dodgers up 2-0. A ground out by Utley advanced Hernández to third base.

Rich Hill made it through just four innings for the Dodgers, yielding three hits and three walks. Still, he struck out 208 hitters, and largely stayed healthy.

The Diamondbacks managed just one more hit after Descalso's home run, and some fans headed for the exits at the end of the eighth inning while Dodgers fans chanted "Sweep!" While Greinke slogged through five-plus frames, Darvish whizzed through his. Reliever Jimmie Sherfy gave up three more runs in a critical fifth inning.

Darvish's fastball averaged about 94 miles per hour this season, the highest of his career, but whether because of the dialed-up October adrenaline or the 14-day layoff he had between starts, Darvish's heater had some extra giddy-up to it Monday night, sitting at 96 and touching 98.

The 21-point loss was their most lopsided since Iowa beat them by the same score in 2013 and only increases the pressure on Riley. Missouri has been an underdog by 20 points or more nine times since the 2000 game at Nebraska , according to oddsshark.com .

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros clinched their respective Major League Baseball play-off series on Monday. Kenley Jansen worked around a single by David Peralta for a three-out save, striking out Paul Goldschmidt to end it.

My reasoning was that Arizona went 11-8 versus the Dodgers during the regular season, scoring 99 runs against that vaunted pitching staff. He entered game three only one-for-10 in the postseason, with six strikeouts. Their starting pitchers outpitched their opponent in each game, their bullpen secured critical outs with minimal drama, and their offense was back to being the relentless, powerful, wear-the-pitcher down unit it was at its midsummer peak.

The trouble began when Taylor smoked that leadoff double into the leftfield corner on Greinke's sixth pitch.

After Ketel Marte's first-inning bunt single, Darvish sent down 13 in a row before Descalso hit his second homer of the series.

"My only thought has been on being prepared", said the 42-year-old Uehara. The pitch ended up hitting the barrel of his bat and was challenged by Arizona manager Torey Lovullo, but it was upheld as a foul ball.

Pinch hitter Carlos Beltran doubled home a two-out insurance run in the ninth.

The Astros called on Justin Verlander in the fifth inning hoping for great results in his first career relief outing. While the Arizona bullpen turned in four scoreless innings, 2 ⅔ by setup man Archie Bradley, the damage had been done.
