Dodgers NLCS: LA Forces Game 7 With a Huge Win Over Atlanta

Once again, the Dodgers found themselves fighting for their lives on Saturday afternoon. Facing off against the Braves in Game 6 of the NLCS, Los Angeles needed the win to stay alive and force a Game 7 against the Braves. To do that, they had to get past Atlanta’s ace in Max Fried.

Battle of the Aces

Walker Buehler going up against Max Fried might have been the best matchup of the series coming into this one. Both guys had pretty successful outings in Game 1, and there was a lot riding on this one. Buehler came in and absolutely shut things down, pitching 6 shutout innings and striking out 6 Braves batters. Buehler also got himself out of a few tough situations, stranding 17 runners total. 

Max Fried had a rough start but finished up very well. After allowing 3 runs in the 1st, he bounced back to pitch 5 consecutive scoreless innings. The Dodgers saw him well but could not string together a few series of hits in order to knock him out of the game.

Corey Seager Does it Again for the Dodgers

Corey Seager is playing on a different planet right now. His 1st inning homerun put him in legendary company as the only player in franchise history with 6 homers and 15 RBI in the postseason. Although he wouldn’t do much for the rest of the game, that at-bat was clutch for the Dodgers. 

Kenley Returns

With just a 2-run lead, Kenley Jansen came on in the 9th trying to lock down the save for the Dodgers. He induced 2 flyouts on just 2 pitches before getting Pablo Sandoval to fly out softly to left field to lock it down. 

Dodgers Play of the Game

The biggest play of the game probably came in the top of the 5th inning. With 2 outs, Marcell Ozuna launched a ball all the way to the top of the wall in right field. While Dodgers fans held their collective breath, Mookie Betts literally took his game to new heights

A game-changing play by a truly game-changing player. Mookie Betts might be the best Dodgers signing in the history of the franchise! 

What’s Next for the Dodgers

After scratching and clawing their way back from being down 3 games to 1, it all rides on tomorrow. The Dodgers and Braves will play a huge Game 7 in Arlington with starting pitchers still to be determined. Los Angeles will almost certainly go with Tony Gonsolin and back him up with essentially the entire bullpen if needed. Your guess is as good as mine with Atlanta.
