The Dodgers entered Game 3 with a 2-0 series lead with the Braves bats in hibernation. A grand slam by Atlanta’s young star Ronald Acuna Jr. helped wake up the offense.
Acuna became the youngest player with a postseason grand slam. The Braves won the game 6-5.
Atlanta will need more of this in Game 4 to keep the series going. They will be counting on their ace Mike Foltynewicz on short rest to get the job done against Dodgers lefthander Rich Hill.
Expect another close game either way, now that the Braves bats are finally awake.
