11-spot: Dodgers huge 1st in 15-3 win over Braves in NLCS
By admin - November 20, 2020
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been making some miraculous plays. Max Muncy’s sealed the deal getting a big slam capping the highest-scoring inning in a major league playoff game. Here are the highlights:
- That new ballpark in his home state of Texas where the Dodgers would like to keep playing through the World Series doesn’t seem too unfamiliar and big these days.
- They’ve solidified their spot in the National League Championship Series after a 15-3 rout of the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night.
- Muncy’s put in work with a slam that gave them an amazing 11-run first inning.
- He ran up the stats with three home runs and had nine consecutive batters reach base after two outs. As a result, the Dodgers set franchise postseason records for runs and home runs with five.
- Muncy knew that not too many things could get sweeter than that. However, the biggest thing is winning the game and that it helped get them “back on track.”
- Everyone was doing their job from Pederson hitting a three-run homer off starter Kyle Wright to start his four-hit night to Corey Seager getting RBI hits in the opening burst, which led to a solo homer in the third. The Dodgers as were able to build a 15-0 lead – which was something no one did in the first three innings of a postseason game.
- Pederson said, “That was fun to be a part of.”
- They just built up a strong momentum. Muncy’s 435-foot slam to right-center was the coup de grâce.
- The Dodgers’ ended up with a franchise record and showed why they’re here to stay.
