After needing just five pitches to work a 1-2-3 first inning, the seemingly unflappable Walker Buehler combusted in what amounted to a five-run second.

The Los Angeles Dodgers went through all the expected motions after winning a playoff series. "Not that Gausman doesn't give us that opportunity, we like how Newcomb matches up with them and the success that he's had against the Dodgers this year". But Cole would soon settle in and end up going seven strong innings giving up that one run on three hits, striking out 12 batters, and walking nobody.

The Dodgers stranded two runners in the eighth inning and left Joc Pederson and Turner on base after they opened the inning with a single and walk, respectively.

The see-saw NLDS Game 3 between the Braves and Dodgers took another turn in the bottom of the sixth. When he left the game, Cleveland was in front 2-1 after tagging Keuchel for two runs on a sacrifice fly by Michael Brantley and Francisco Lindor's second home run of the series. Kurt Suzuki, who was batting for Foltynewicz, contributed a two-out pinch single to drive in Johan Camargo and Tyler Flowers.

With their backs against the wall, the Braves turned to Sean Newcomb to extend their season another day while the Dodgers looked to close things out with Walker Buehler on the mound. Los Angeles had a franchise-record 235 homers during the regular season and eight more against the Braves, accounting for 14 of its 20 runs. The Braves held on to win, so there will be a Game 4 with the Dodgers having a two-games-to-one lead.

Los Angeles also benefited from some shaky Atlanta defense during its go-ahead inning.

Speaking of which, this was the difference-maker in Game 3.
