The Braves won a goodbye hit for two consecutive nights when Eddie Rosario lined up the gloves of two-out single-off shortstop Corey Seager, giving Atlanta a 5-4 victory. Los Angeles Dodgers The 2-0 NL Championship Series will lead on Sunday night.
Atlanta recovered twice from a two-run deficit before Rosario came up with the game’s fourth hit. This is the first pitch near Kenley Jansen’s relief and is a 105 mph scorch. Seger tried a backhand snag and the ball went outfield from under the glove.
Dansby Swanson ran around from Swanson on a winning run and dropped his helmet as he crossed the plate. This is a virtual repeat of Game 1 when Austin Riley won 3-2 in his ninth win.
The Braves need two more victories for the first World Series appearance since 1999, but can’t celebrate yet. A year ago, they led the NLCS Dodgers 2-0 and 3-1 but lost in the last three games. Los Angeles defeated Tampa Bay in the World Series, and the Braves boiled another shot.
They’re on the way after the Dodgers rallyed in the eighth off of Julio Urías, who threw three hitless innings to play the Braves in Round 7 last October.
The series will resume in Los Angeles, where Game 3 is set on Tuesday night.
