With 54,726 fans in attendance, the Dodgers had their largest crowd in Chavez Ravine since 2012, before renovations to the venerable stadium. The crowd also was one of the season’s loudest, egged on by Puig’s enthusiasm and by Hill, who held up a cardboard sign in the seventh inning exhorting fans to get loud.

Greinke couldn’t make it through four innings in the Diamondbacks’ wild-card game, but nobody around the Dodgers doubts the $206.5 million right-hander who won 51 games in three years with Los Angeles. Darvish went 4-3 with a 3.44 ERA in two months with the Dodgers, but the Japanese star yielded just one earned run in 19 1/3 innings over his final three starts before the postseason.
Kids Mel Ott Jersey We can’t be an organization that pulls the plug on guys too quick, Francona said. And we don’t have a crystal ball, either. But with an arm like that, if you run out of patience too quickly, he’s going to be doing this for another organization. We can’t have that happen.
And it wasn’t just patience. I mean, it was a lot of hard work. I know Kevin Cash isn’t here anymore, but he did a lot with Carrasco, sitting out in that bullpen, as far as mentality and embracing what’s coming. There are a lot of people that deserve credit. Carlos is right at the top of that list. But it’s a good story for us, because he’s been one of the better pitchers in the game.
It will be an even better story if Carrasco can vanquish New York in Game 3 and carry the Indians into the Championship Series. The prime-time stage awaits in New York.
