Yu Darvish goes for the Dodgers tonight and in his last outing of the regular season he was solid giving up one earned run in seven innings in a 9-3 win over the San Diego Padres.

The Diamondbacks have won two of his last three starts, but in that span he has lasted 11 innings and given up 14 earned runs. In 10 career post-season starts Greinke is 3-3 with an ERA of 3.92.

L.A. Dodgers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks NLDS Game 3 Prediction

The Dodgers have won the first two games of this series at home where they outscored the Diamondbacks 17-10. Darvish has not had much success in his limited playoff experience, but he has been lights out lately only giving up one earned run in his last 19 innings. The Diamondbacks pitching was not sharp in the first two games of this series in L.A. and while they have their Ace in Greinke on the hill he has not pitched like an Ace in his last few starts. However, in this game I expect him to turn things around and have a great outing. Darvish will give up a few runs and that is all Greinke will need, as unlike in L.A. this game will be a low scoring affair and this time around the Diamondbacks will get the win to stay alive in the series.
