The Dodgers just pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in postseason history with a 4-3 win over the Braves in game 7 of the National League championship series to win the National League pennant on Sunday night at Globe Life field in Arlington Texas. The Dodgers down 3-2 in the sixth inning got a game-tying home run from Enrique Hernandez, and the game winning home run an inning later from Cody Bellinger.
There is no way anything I type here can explain or properly recap this incredible turnaround. I’ll just post some videos and you guys can enjoy the celebration. Julio Urias pitched three scoreless innings to clinch the pennant. The Braves had gone up 2-0 early, but a huge base-running blunder later in the game cost them dearly. The Dodgers tied it in the bottom of the third on a two RBI single from Will Smith who has been especially clutch this postseason.
NLCS Game 7
Braves 3 3 0
Dodgers 4 10 0
The Braves went ahead in the top of the fourth on an RBI single from Austin Riley. The Dodgers don’t give up though, they never did even when they were down 3-1 in the series. In the bottom of the sixth Enrique Hernandez tied it with a massive pinch-hit home run off the second deck. One inning later, Cody Bellinger’s home run put the Dodgers ahead for good. Even though Cody injured his shoulder during the celebration, he was ok and finished the game in center field.
Mookie Betts continued his excellent outfield defense with another gravity defying catch in right field, robbing Freddie Freeman of a home run. I think the guy has wings or something. Corey Seager was named the NLCS MVP. Seager earned it with 5 home runs and 11 runs batted in, all National League records. The World Series starts on Tuesday night. Do you believe in miracles? Four more wins.
