Despite the loss, the Dodgers made a remarkable return after being down 7-0 to lose game two 8-7. For the Dodger fans, it was a sign of hope that they will have the momentum for game three. According to the players, they are just warming up.
At the bottom of the ninth, the Dodgers were down 8-3 when Corey Seager got a hit in the right field, and Mookie Betts ran home. Shortly after, Max Muncy hit a deep home run in the stands, and they were down two runs. Before the incredible comeback emerged, AJ Pollock was grounded at third and the Braves remains the only undefeated team in the postseason.
The Braves took advantage of rookie Pitcher Tony Gonsolin by scoring five runs in 4 ½ innings. Gonsolin said he did not feel as sharp as he should have felt, and he didn’t make the proper adjustments. With the emotional comeback, Dave Roberts still believes the Dodgers are just getting started. “Us showing life late–that was good to see.” With top pitchers Max Fried and Ian Anderson unavailable for games three and four, the Dodgers have a chance to capitalize. Tonight the Dodgers will start with 25-year old Kyle Wright.
If they lose tonight, it will the first time Dodgers lost three consecutive games, which shows how good they are. Kike’ Hernandez said it’s a long series, and it’s never until it’s over, and they look forward to the challenge.
The Dodgers will start with Julio Urias, and Roberts said they confident in him. They will rush to bring Kershaw back to the mound from his injury. Game three is tonight at 5:05 PM.
