It was a thriller of an NLDS showdown on Friday between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Atlanta Braves, and the Braves pulled off a nail-biting victory, 4-3.
Making his postseason debut, Braves lefty Mike Minor out-pitched former Cy Young winner Zack Greinke, who gave the Braves a 2-1 lead upon his exit in the seventh.
Although reliable for most of the season, the Dodgers’ bullpen faltered in the bottom of the seventh, when they intentionally loaded the bases for Jason Heyward, who drove in two runs for the Braves with a clutch single.
Down 4-1, Hanley Ramirez brought the Dodgers back into the game in the eighth, when he poked a two-run homer in the left-field bleachers.
However, the Braves’ bullpen proved too strong and held onto the 4-3 lead to secure a Game 2 victory for Atlanta.
