Rosenthal: Dodgers show their toughness in memorable two-batter sequence

All three games were Dodgers victories. But it will sting to know they had the NL pennant in their grasp, only to see it slip away in a weird turn of events in the middle innings, resulting in a 7-3 Dodgers victory.

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day. The over is also 5-2 in the Braves' last seven games when their opponent allows five runs or more in its previous game ad is 18-8-5 in Atlanta's last 31 games after scoring five runs or more in its previous contest. Friday's dose was something to behold.

The Dodgers led 11-0 entering the second inning after center fielder Cody Bellinger robbed the Braves' Ozzie Albies with a leaping catch at the wall that stranded two runners in the bottom of the first.

Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in the Dodgers' NLCS Game 2 loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

The Dodgers put-together an 11-run first inning, which is the highest-scoring inning of all-time in an Major League Baseball postseason game.

On this night, it set up the Dodgers' season-saving moment.

Amusing the way the Dodgers' Will Smith put it, saying he didn't want the Braves' Will Smith to "bully" him by pushing him off the plate inside.

Yes, it was the first time a pitcher and batter with the same name faced each other in a playoff game.

The Braves now hold a 3-1 series lead after winning Thursday's Game 4 10-2.

The younger Smith would prevail. Pollock was in left field. When the Dodgers' offense is right, it's their hitters who are the bullies. This NLCS has shown things can get turned on their ear quickly.

Perhaps that shouldn't be a surprise. Chapter 6 is next.
