Justin Turner leads the Dodgers to a game one win

Granted, Turner has not played in a single World Series game, so any comparison to Reggie Jackson would fall a little short.

The Los Angeles Dodgers' Yasiel Puig is very interesting, and very talented.

Less than 24 hours after the start of their National League Divisional Series matchup with the Dodgers, the Arizona Diamondbacks will take the field Saturday night to avoid heading back home on the brink of elimination. He came out for the seventh despite a career 23.82 postseason ERA in that frame. It's about finding a way to pick up the next guy, and the next guy, and find a way to get it done.

Few more days of sun before rainy pattern moves in
Saturday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 8 p.m. Temps remain below normal in the 70s and 60s Thursday with scattered rain and storms throughout the day.

"He's called "the Wild Horse" for a reason", said Manager Dave Roberts, who benched Puig twice in September, but now was smiling at his antics.

"Sometimes, you shake your head", Roberts said. Turner's home run in the first gave the Dodgers a huge lift, they sent all nine batters to the plate and scored four runs in the first inning, thus knocking D-backs starter, Taijuan Walker, out the game after just the one inning pitched.

LA's big lead was down to 7-4 when the three-time Cy Young Award victor left, but the suspense didn't last: Turner and the 104-win Dodgers added two more runs in the eighth, capping a 12-hit performance. "It's not uncommon, it happens, it's happened to our group of pitchers". "I thought he was spectacular for us tonight". On one hand, the Dodgers will do anything to win. "I felt fine. [The ball] just wasn't coming out as good as I would have liked it to that last inning. Obviously, it was frustrating the way it ended but thankfully I had a big lead". He lost the previous two postseason games and had a 5.40 ERA for the Rangers.

Alarming: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly's personal phone reportedly hacked
Politico reports Kelly turned his phone over for IT help this summer after complaining it was acting up. One of the officials told the political news site that Kelly was using a different personal phone.

"In our clubhouse, we do have a lot of confidence going into LA", Lamb said. Kershaw snagged the win, after giving up four homeruns in a game. Kenley gave up an unearned run, which led the game culminating in a 9-5 Dodger victory.

The tongue-wag at third base was not the only curious appearance of Puig's tongue on this night.

Puig and Corey Seager both tripled and drove in two runs for the Dodgers, who finished 11 games ahead of Arizona to earn their fifth consecutive NL West crown. We have to give the Dodgers credit. "I think there is a tick better defense from Logan". That wouldn't be the case Friday, mostly because giving three-time Cy Young victor Clayton Kershaw that kind of cushion isn't the recipe for success. Lovullo, though, dismissed it. "It's going to be a great challenge", he said. "It really was not a big factor for me".
