The Dodgers back to the wall

The Atlanta Braves are just one World Series victory away after Marcell Ozuna’s 10-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday at Globe Life Field.

The designated hitter became only the eighth Braves player in team history to hit two long balls in a playoff game, and the first since Chipper Jones in 2003.

Also with a single and a double, Ozuna pushed four teammates home and participated in a six-point push from Atlanta in the sixth inning. In that assault, Ozuna, Freddie Freeman, Dansby Swanson, Austin Riley and Cristian Pache all produced to give theirs a good lead.

Edwin Rios was the only Dodger capable of producing points, which is quite different from the previous day’s game, which ended 15-3 in favor of Los Angeles. The offense came up against a Bry Wilson in superb form.

In his first career playoff start, the 22-year-old gunner gave just one hit, one homerun, in six innings of work, knocking out five men at bat. The relief was also excellent and allowed only a single and a double, both struck by Justin Turner.

It was quite the opposite for Clayton Kershaw, who continues to struggle through the postseason schedule. The ace gave the Braves four earned runs and a five-innings homerun.

The Dodgers will face elimination in Game 5 of this National League final on Friday.
