Braves return home needing win vs LA to extend NLDS

Matt Kemp

As noted, the Braves are down 0-2 in this best-of-five NLDS, which means they'll need to win three straight in order to advance to the NLCS. Ross Stripling was an All-Star the first half of the season, while Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Buehler, and Rich Hill were on the DL.

Los Angeles Dodgers' South Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin has come a long way to reach where he was standing Thursday, in the afterglow of the best postseason start of his career. Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles Times National Baseball Hall of Famer and former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda talks with sex therapist, media personality, and author Dr. Ruth Westheimer before the Dodgers game. It concluded when he gave up four runs and six hits in five innings, including two home runs, in a 4-1 loss to the Dodgers.

The Braves are back in the postseason for the first time since 2013, having won 90 games in earning the NL East title earlier in their rebuild than most projected.

The 2010 first-round pick tossed just two innings and allowed four earned runs on homers by Pederson and Muncy.

"The plan all along was if they burned their bench, which is what we wanted to do and Flowers came out, that Kenley had the ninth", he said. He gave up the home runs to both Machado and Grandal. He loaded the bases with two outs before striking out Yasiel Puig.

"He has a feel for everything and when his curveball's on, it's going to be a good night for him", Culberson said. "But, you know, it was just a situation there you get behind against a guy like that, we were just trying to try and stop the bleeding there a little bit". Muncy led the Dodgers with 35 home runs in the regular season.

The 21-year-old Albies was 1 for 4 and 24-year-old Johan Camargo was hitless in four tries. "And it was good for him to experience this", Snitker said.

numberFire's models project Pederson to score 10.6 FanDuel points at a cost of $3,100 in Game 1.

If the series goes to a deciding fifth game, Roberts would again have to decide between Ryu and the ace who has been the face of the franchise for years.

It was not easy though, the Dodgers were as far as nine games out of first place after losing to the Arizona Diamondbacks on May 9th. Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles Times A member of the Blue Crew waves a large Dodgers flag on top of the Dodgers dugout before the start of the game against the Atlanta Braves. "I think a starting pitcher is supposed to throw more than 100 pitches every time".

Clayton Kershaw also had a good day.

"You get two quick outs and then to get two strikes, hit the batter, fall behind, turn and walk them, and for that to happen and put your team down 4 to 0 in the second inning is not where you want to be, especially opening up a series and then you have Kershaw tomorrow". "But to not let it influence his mind or psyche, that doesn't surprise me".
