The Dodgers have yet to allow an earned run in this division series, winning the first two games by a combined score of 9-0. The vintage Clayton Kershaw returned in game two to pitch eighth shutout innings and the Dodgers hit two more home runs (Manny Machado, Yasmani Grandal) against opposing starter Anibal Sanchez and the Boys in blue have a chance at a sweep as the series shifts to Atlanta.
Honestly the Braves didn’t put up much of a fight. It appeared as if they had totally given up, and going up against Kershaw in game two seemed to be the nail in their coffin. The Dodgers will give the ball to Walker Buehler for game 3 looking for the knockout blow. The Dodgers have already hit five home runs in the first two games and the Braves have not scored a run. With Buehler on the mound for game three, they may not score again. Well, let’s hope. In the meantime check out some of the highlights from game 2 as we await the start of game three.
