Video, Twitter Reaction for Dodgers Celebrating Trip to NLCS

The Los Angeles Dodgers punched their ticket to the NLCS on Monday with a 4-3 win over the Atlanta Braves in Game 4 of the NLDS

When Kenley Jansen punched out Justin Upton for the final out, the jubilant Dodgers stormed the field.

Reaction on Twitter was swift.

It was a series that displayed a balanced offensive effort for the Dodgers, who got contributions from up and down the lineup. Juan Uribe, who hit .375 in the series, provided the game-winner with his clutch two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning. 

Uribe's blast was preceded by Yasiel Puig's opposite-field double, his eighth hit of the series. Twitter made sure that Puig was feeling the love as well.

Clayton Kershaw, who started on three days' rest, gutted it out for six innings, allowing two unearned runs on just three hits. His gritty effort kept the Dodgers close, and people let Kershaw know what they thought of his effort as well on Twitter.

All in all, this was a performance that was impressive. The Dodgers hit .333 for the series, and the bullpen provided shutdown relief when called upon.

The Dodgers will now have four days to relax and prepare for their NLCS opponent, to be decided on Wednesday. Twitter users gave their opinion about who they'd rather see.

The celebration will continue Monday night, but the Dodgers know they have much work to do. They'll be back at work, looking for their first World Series Championship in 25 years.
