The Braves trailed the Dodgers 2-1 in the fourth inning of game two. Then Austin Riley stepped to the plate a smacked solo homer to left to tie that game. The bats for both sides went silent until the bottom of the ninth. Ozzie Albies singled to center, then stole second. Riley came up to the plate again and walked it off with a base-hit down the left field line to give the Braves a 3-2 game one win. 

Trea Turner, who did not have a strong NLDS for the Dodgers, went 2-for-4 in the loss while Chris Taylor and Will Smith each drove in a run. Smith hit his third homer of the postseason, a solo shot in the fourth.

The Dodgers will look to Max Scherzer to even this series before heading back to L.A. for games three and four. Scherzer has been dominant in the postseason. He allowed one run in the Dodgers' wild card game over the Cardinals. Then tossed seven innings of one-run baseball against the Giants, before acting as the closer for L.A. when they finished off San Fran in the Divisional Round.

The Braves turn to Ian Anderson who will be making his second start of the postseason. He tossed five scoreless innings against the Brewers striking out six without issuing a walk. Anderson has made five playoff starts in his career allowing just two runs over 18.2 innings. 

The Dodgers are 1.5-run favorites against the Braves. The over/under is 7.5 runs.
