Dodgers tweak lineup to adjust to Braves left-hander Newcomb

  • Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb throws to a Los Angeles Dodgers batter during the third inning of Game 1 of a baseball National League Division Se

When the Los Angeles Dodgers bolstered their already power-packed lineup with slugging shortstop Manny Machado, this is just what they had in mind. So today, let us recap how both of these teams found their way to the next round.

Next stop, the NL Championship Series for the third year in a row. Their pitching held the Indians to three runs or fewer in each of the three games they played and outscored them 21-6 in the series.

The Milwaukee Brewers had an even easier time with the Rockies, so you know that series is going to be something. He shared the team lead with Foltynewicz by starting 31 games.

He had only three hits in the series, but two of them were homers, along with six RBIs. Toussaint tossed one scoreless inning. It took until the sixth inning for the Astros to get to starter Carlos Carrasco and after Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman reached base, Carrasco got Yuli Gurriel to line out before being taken out for Andrew Miller. It appeared as though Acuna would bring in his team's second run, when he took a 3-0 pitch that appeared to miss high. "We couldn't get that one extra hit". Los Angeles had a franchise-record 235 homers during the regular season and hit eight more against the Braves, accounting for 14 of its 20 runs.

Game 3 of the NLDS between the Dodgers and Braves has a scheduled first pitch today at 8:07 pm EST / 5:07 pm PST.

Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler is expected to start for the Dodgers.


Buehler beat the Braves in his only regular-season start against them as the 24-year-old allowed a run and two hits over 5 1/3 innings at Los Angeles on June 8.

Los Angeles was denied its second straight NLDS sweep after winning three straight over Arizona in 2017.

Each sat in Game 3 when manager Dave Roberts started David Freese at first and Chris Taylor in left against left-hander Sean Newcomb on Sunday night.

Newcomb, who pitched two innings of relief in Game 1, lasted 2 2/3 innings in Game 3 and was charged with two runs (one earned). But Los Angeles did their damage with two on and two out in the sixth inning after the Braves elected to turn over the pitching duties to Brad Brach after Jonny Venters went 1 2/3 innings.

The homer gave the Braves, who trail 2-0 in the series, a 5-0 lead.
