The NLCS heads back to Atlanta

The Dodgers looked dead on multiple occasions in three days at Dodger Stadium, but managed to win two of three games in Los Angeles to force the NLCS back to Atlanta, trailing three games to two.

Cody Bellinger’s home run in Game 3 had Dodger Stadium at peak volume, and highlighted a resurgent postseason for the former MVP. A loss the next day forced the Dodgers into yet another elimination game, which was won on the bats of Chris Taylor and AJ Pollock.

We recorded this before the news that Max Scherzer was scratched from his Game 6 start, and definitely before the news that Walker Buehler will be starting Saturday on three days rest, so please be kind. We recorded before a wrench was thrown into the Dodgers weekend pitching plans. But one of our overall points on the podcast is that, no matter who is pitching, the offense needs to put together consecutive good games to complete the comeback.

Also in this episode: chicken nuggets and tenders talk!

Thanks as always to Brian Salvatore, who produced our seventh podcast in the last 19 days.
