Kenley Jansen put the tying run on in the ninth. The All-Star closer gave up a two-out double to Nick Ahmed before Ketel Marte popped up to second, giving Jansen his 34th save in 38 opportunities.

Turner’s homer leading off the eighth gave the Dodgers a 3-2 victory on Friday. The D’Backs won the opener 3-1 on Peralta’s three-run shot.“This is a tough loss, but we didn’t lose a playoff game,” Bradley said. “One game does not define this team.”Arizona led 2-0 after Eduardo Escobar and pinch-hitter Christian Walker led off innings by homering on first pitches from Kershaw. Escobar went deep to left field in the second. Walker, hitting for starter Patrick Corbin, landed one in left-center for his second career pinch-hit homer off Kershaw.In between Arizona’s two homers, Kershaw retired 12 consecutive batters.
