  • Chase Utley's career may have come to a premature end

"It was good to see, and we needed that one". He laughed upon realizing the gaffe.

Sean Newcomb, mentioned by Snitker before Thursday's game as a possibility to start Game 3 on Sunday, was the first pitcher out of the bullpen and went two innings.

"Back then (in 2015), I made a decision to have shoulder surgery, obviously so that I could be back on the mound again", Ryu said.

Dodgers great Sandy Koufax was among those who gave Ryu a standing ovation as he walked to the dugout after his final pitch.

Acuna, who was 0 for 4 and struck out twice, said he didn't think there was any pressure participating in his first postseason game. He hit.239 with 18 home runs in 59 turns as the Dodgers' leadoff man this season.

A Braves team that finished 18 games below.500 a year ago and burst upon the scene in 2018 is actually the one with more predictability surrounding it in a series against the defending National League champions. It concluded when he gave up four runs and six hits in five innings, including two home runs, in a 4-1 loss to the Dodgers. In his second start of the series, Kershaw was even worse tossing 6 2/3 innings allowing five earned runs with a chance to close out the series.

It won't be easy, but it's very simple: the Atlanta Braves need to score first if they want to steal Game 2. Other than that, it was a pretty quiet night for the offense. However, at times, they also looked like they would run away with the division only to be brought back down to earth against a sub.500 team. They recorded their first consecutive shutouts since Games 2 and 3 of the 2016 NL Championship Series against the Cubs. Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles Times Roger "The Dodger" Cunard, of Austin, Texas, who's been a fan since he was 7 years old, shows his Dodgers spirit wearing a baseball hat and Vin Scully jersey before the game.

Yelich had put the Brewers up with a two-run homer in the third.

Acuna's a true five-tooler, and at least two of those were on display in Game 2. He loaded the bases with two outs before striking out Yasiel Puig.

If the series goes to a deciding fifth game, Roberts would again have to decide between Ryu and the ace who has been the face of the franchise for years.

Foltynewicz (0-1) lasted just two innings, giving up four runs on three hits with three walks. "Those three runs probably played the biggest role in this game".

Hernandez added a solo shot in the sixth inning as the Dodgers played to their strength. Ender Inciarte has 12 hits and is batting.343 over his past 10 games for Atlanta.

You'll recall Javier Baez's "hug on the bases" with Nolan Arenado in the NL Wild Card Game.

No, he didn't strike out many, but Kershaw's deep repertoire allows him to keep hitters off balance despite declining velocity.

Relievers Caleb Ferguson, Alex Wood and Dylan Floro completed the shutout.
