Baseball fans couldn't ask for more as, for the first time since 2004, both the ALCS and NLCS had to go to a Game 7. And now that the Tampa Bay Rays have clinched a berth in the World Series, Braves and Dodgers will fight 'til the death for the final spot in the ultimate stage.
Dave Roberts could be coaching for his job tonight even though the overpowered Dodgers were able to force Game 7 after falling to a 0-2 hole, but taking away 4 from this Braves team is going to be an uphill battle for any club in the world.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves: Storylines
The Los Angeles Dodgers hit the ground running from the start in yesterday's matchup, putting a lot of pressure on Max Fried after jumping to an early 3-0 lead. However, their defense was more impressive than their offense.
Now, Dave Roberts will trust Tony Gonsolin as his opener and won't hesitate to turn to his bullpen early, as he knows his job could be on the line after countless shortcomings in the postseason.
Even though the Atlanta Braves entered the season as a strong contender, it's pretty safe to state that they've already exceeded all expectations. Then again, there's no such thing as a moral victory at this point.
The Braves' red-hot offense must get the job done after putting up just 3 and 1 runs over their past couple of games. Gladly for them, they'll have Ian Anderson on the mound to keep the momentum going on their side.
