How do the Braves stack up against the Dodgers?
In June, Atlanta won two out of three at home against Los Angeles. Charlie Morton and Max Fried picked up the wins against Clayton Kershaw and Trevor Bauer. The loss featured Ian Anderson vs. Julio Urias on the mound.
In August, the Dodgers swept the Braves at home. Each game was decided by two or one runs. Urias again posed a problem for the Braves hitters.
The Dodgers series would be a chance at redemption for the Braves. Atlanta held the NLCS lead last year before it lost to Los Angeles in Game 7. Los Angeles would go on to win the World Series.
