Sports News:
Braves 1 win from WS after 10-2 win over Dodgers in NLCS G4

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Marcell Ozuna and the Atlanta Braves turned issues round in a rush, and now are one win from ending a two-decade World Series drought.

Ozuna homered twice, rookie right-hander Bryse Wilson made his postseason debut by outpitching a three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw and the Braves bounced again from a lopsided loss with a rout of their very own, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-2 on Thursday night time.

“Feels good, feels really good,” Braves supervisor Brian Snitker mentioned. “Still have a lot of work to do, you know how quick things can turn. I was really proud of the guys, how they bounced back.”

The Braves took a 3-1 lead in the NL Championship Series, an evening after a 15-3 loss. Atlanta will attempt to attain its first World Series since 1999 when it performs Game 5 Friday night time.

Atlanta grew to become the primary group in MLB historical past to have back-to-back video games in a single postseason the place they misplaced by at the least eight runs after which received by at the least eight runs, in line with STATS.

Dustin May, the 23-year-old Texan who has thrown 4 2-3 scoreless innings in three appearances this postseason, will begin for the Dodgers with them going through potential elimination. Atlanta will doubtless go along with a bullpen day.

Ozuna had 4 hits and drove in 4 runs. It was 1-all in the sixth when the Braves scored six occasions, with MVP candidate Freddie Freeman hitting a tiebreaking double and Ozuna following with an RBI double that chased Kershaw.

An evening after the Dodgers had a file 11-run first, they managed just one hit – a solo homer by Edwin Ríos – over six innings in opposition to the 22-year-old Wilson.

“He was in complete control. … He had a really good look about him. He had good tempo, and the stuff was live,” Snitker mentioned. “It was huge, a huge effort by him.”

Ronald Acuña Jr. led off the decisive six-run sixth with an infield single on a play that ended with him, Kershaw and second baseman Kiké Hernández all on the bottom. They all took tumbles due to their effort, and weren’t knocked down by the generally bothersome breezy circumstances in the brand new Texas ballpark with the roof open.

Kershaw fell down after coming off the mound whereas reaching as much as attempt to discipline the excessive chopper. Hernández went to the bottom after grabbing the ball and making a sidearm throw then went huge whereas Acuña tumbled after passing the bottom and landed awkwardly on his left wrist that was irritated twice in the course of the common season. Acuña went to second base due to the errant throw after being tended to for a number of moments.

After making an attempt glasses in the sphere and getting eyedrops early in the sport, Freeman apparently had no issues seeing when he doubled residence Acuña for a 2-1 lead earlier than Ozuna adopted with one other double. Reliever Brusdar Graterol obtained the primary out earlier than giving up three consecutive hits, together with Dansby Swanson’s two-run double and Austin Riley’s RBI single. Rookie Cristian Pache capped the inning with an RBI single that made it 7-1.

“They’re similar to us as far as they build on momentum really well,” Kershaw mentioned. “It just seems like they have that domino effect when one thing gets going. They just continue to build on that. And they’ve got great hitters, too.”

Freeman and Ozuna every added RBI singles in the eighth.

“We have fun today,” Ozuna mentioned. “Yesterday, before we start, we were on a little streak. Today, we come in with the same energy and give our best.”

Atlanta had gotten even 1-1 in the fourth when Ozuna turned an 86 mph slider from Kershaw right into a 109 mph rocket that went 422 toes to left for his second postseason homer. Ozuna went even deeper in the seventh, a 434-foot shot to straightaway middle.

Wilson grew to become the third-youngest pitcher to permit one or no hits over at the least six innings in a postseason sport. He struck out 5 and walked one, beginning with a 1-2-3 first on 10 pitches.

“Once I got out there and threw the first pitch I felt calm, cool and collected,” Wilson mentioned. “We were able to stick to the game plan and that helped a bunch to execute pitches.”

Kershaw, scratched from his scheduled begin in Game 2 two days earlier due to again spams, struck out 4, walked one and allowed 4 runs on seven hits in five-plus innings. He is now 11-12 with 4.31 ERA in postseason, versus his 175-76 file and a pair of.43 ERA in the common season throughout his 13 years in the large leagues.

Ríos, batting seventh and the fourth left-hander in a row in the Dodgers beginning lineup in opposition to Wilson, homered to proper main off the third.

After being left off the NL Division Series roster due to a groin harm, and never taking part in in the NLCS opener, Ríos homered when beginning the final two video games. He had one of many Dodgers’ postseason file 5 on Wednesday night time.

“It’s tough. We’ve got three left,” Ríos mentioned. “We’ve just got to win ’em.”


Major League Baseball mentioned it needed to maintain the roof open at $1.2 billion Globe Life Field – barring rain – when the settlement was reached for the brand new residence of the Texas Rangers to host three rounds of the playoffs in the pandemic-shortened season. Fox reported in the course of the telecast that Roberts informed umpire Cory Blaser between innings that Kershaw and first baseman Max Muncy have been having bother seeing. The reported wind velocity at first of the sport was 6 to fifteen mph.


Acuña, Freeman and Ozuna – batting 1-2-3 for the Braves – have been a mixed 8 for 14, driving in six runs and scoring six.

“Coming off the game we had last night, we might have thought we needed an offensive day and those guys took care of business,” Snitker mentioned.


Kershaw has now allowed 27 postseason homers, second most in historical past behind Andy Pettitte (31).
