Los Angeles Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves: Storylines
The Los Angeles Dodgers have a long history of underperforming in the playoffs after dominating in the regular season and nothing, not even that Mookie Betts trade seems to be enough to get them over the hump.
Now, they'll have a golden opportunity to put their doubters at ease once and for all by beating the red-hot Atlanta Braves another time to force Game 7, but Walker Buehler and their pitching must be flawless if they want to stand a chance.
The Atlanta Braves seem unfazed after dropping another game to the strongest team in the National League. They've been hitting timely and have plenty of ways of producing offense, so they know that they'll always be in a position to win baseball games.
Moreover, they're going to send their ace to the mound now after an impressive outing in the first game of the series, so it seems like all the pressure is on the Los Angeles Dodgers ahead of today's matchup.
