Justin Turner was hit by a Camilo Doval pitch with one out and the scored bind 1-1 to start the Dodgers’ ninth-inning rally. Gavin Lux then singled before Bellinger delivered the game-winning hit.

Walker Buehler is likely to start Game 2 on Sunday followed by left-hander Julio Urias in Game 3 next Tuesday in Los Angeles.
Things then complicated for Roberts in Game 4 on Wednesday. He could opt to go with Scherzer on short-lived remainder or have a bullpen game.
Scherzer has started exactly twice on three days’ rest in his profession, both occasions during postseason play.
The Dodgers were originally hoping first baseman Max Muncy would be able to play if they boosted to the NLCS. He hyperextended his left elbow during the final weekend of the regular season.
However, it now appears equivocal Muncy will be ready to face the Braves. That is a big bat missing from the lineup after he made. 249/.368 /. 527 with a team-high 36 home run in 144 regular season games.
Muncy has shined in postseasons past.

Bellinger started three times at first base in the NLDS and Matt Beaty and Albert Pujols reached one start apiece.
Getting the Better of Braves
The Dodgers moved 4-2 against the Braves in the regular season, including sweeping a three-game series from Aug. 30 -Sept. 1 at Dodger Stadium. Los Angeles has won the season series five straight years since 2016 with a command 22 -1 0 advantage.
Third baseman Justin Turner contributed the Dodgers’ charge against the Braves in 2021 by going 7 for 23 (. 304) with two double-dealings. Muncy made a triple and duet of home run in 15 at-bats.

Infielder/ outfielder Chris Taylor fought against Atlanta pitching, vanishing 2 for 18 (. 111) with eight strikeouts. Taylor was the superstar of the Dodgers’ wild card game victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, stumbling a game-winning two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman smacked merely. 217( 5 for 23) against the Dodgers but two of the reaches were home runs. Shortstop Dansby Swanson was 4 for 20 (. 200) with seven strikeouts.
Search Further Ahead
If the Dodgers win the NLCS, they will face either the Houston Astros or Boston Red Sox in the World Series. The Dodgers split four recreations with Houston this season but did not face Boston.
With their odds down to +130, the Dodgers don’t present a lot of value. However, they are the best of the four teams still standing and the logical ones to gamble on.
