The Braves jumped out to a 7-0 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh inning, but this game was far from over as they Dodgers fought until the very last out. An Albies sacrifice fly added the fourth run of the inning. It was clear that Tony Gonsolin was running out of gas when he walked two and allowed an RBI double before giving way to the bullpen. "We go through the middle parts of the innings last night and kind of the ABs got away from us, had some quick innings".

Freeman, the first batter Baez faced, singled on a 1-1 four-seam fastball, driving in Pache and advancing Acuna to third.

"He punches Riley and then it wasn't a good walk to Markakis". Ronald Acuña Jr.is 0-for-3 against Urias while Freddie Freeman is 0-for-2. "We know they are a good club, and they are playing good baseball right now, and we are pretty confident in ourselves, so there is at least one parallel". "Seeing-eye grounder from Freeman, and from that point on he just didn't execute". He said that Graterol was available but with his team trailing the whole night, it didn't make sense to go to him in Game 2.

Their 11-run opening to Game 3 will forever go down in the record books as one of the most dominant offensive explosions of all time.

The same can be said for Blake Treinen, who was also getting loose during that nightmare fifth inning. Urias has given up just one unearned run in eight innings over two relief appearances against the Brewers and Padres, recording 11 strikeouts in those games.

Tyler Matzek, the second of seven Atlanta pitchers was credited with the victory, pitching two shutout innings, allowing one hit, striking out one and walking one.
