World News – US – Historic rout brings Dodgers to life


ARLINGTON, Texas Major League Playoff Game

This new baseball stadium in its home state of Texas where the Dodgers hope to continue playing throughout the World Series suddenly doesn’t seem too big anymore, and they’re back in the National League Championship series after Atlanta Braves’ 15-3 rout on Wednesday night

Muncy’s slam against Grant Dayton capped an 11-point first inning when Los Angeles took advantage of a starting replay challenge, hit three home runs and nine straight batters hit base after two outs The Dodgers set playoff franchise records for races and home runs with five, reducing their NLCS deficit to 2 games to 1

“It’s pretty cool There aren’t too many cooler things than that,” said Muncy “But the most important thing for me is that our team got a W and got us back on track « 

Joc Pederson hit a three-run homerun on starter Kyle Wright to start his night of four hits, and Edwin Rios went deep on the next pitch Corey Seager had a pair of hits in the opening flurry, then added a solo homerun in the third as the Dodgers built a 15-0 lead – the first team with that many runs in the first three innings. of a post-season match

Julio Urias made his first playoff start and improved to 3-0 in that playoff, striking out five while allowing one run and three hits in five innings He walked the first two hitters but no more

The Braves’ miserable start was eerily similar to their Game 5 of last year’s Division Series flop against St Louis, when they gave up a 10-point first inning at home in a late-season start by Mike Foltynewicz

Manager Dave Roberts has said Clayton Kershaw will start Game 4 for the Dodgers, two nights after the three-time NL Cy Young Award winner was scratched with back spasms

Bryse Wilson makes his playoff debut as Atlanta’s third rookie right-hander in this series, which will be his first appearance since the last day of the regular season on September 27

« We are still in a good position with four games to go, » said Braves manager Brian Snitker « Like I said, for the whole team, just turn the page and get ready to leave tomorrow »

The Dodgers had left the tying point at third, four points down from ninth in an 8-7 loss on Tuesday night They were the visiting team in Game 3 and sent 14 batters home for seven hits, three goals and one batter in 32 minutes in the 29,786th half inning in playoff history.

“It was fun to be a part of,” said Pederson. “I think some of the momentum from last night, the final run definitely picked up and made us feel a little more out of our mind. comfortable at marble »

The 15 points came after the Braves allowed just nine points in their previous six games plus eight innings, a streak that included four shutouts en route to a 7-0 playoff start.

Bellinger walked and scored in the first, started the second with a home run, and added a single RBI in the third His long ball came right after his run, jumping over the center field wall to steal Ozzie Albies with two to end atlanta first

« The way we started the series is not ideal, but we feel good about ourselves, » Bellinger said

In San Diego, the Houston Astros avoided a sweep with a 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series

Randy Arozarena had a two-run shot in the fourth inning for his fifth homerun of the playoffs, but the Rays didn’t score again until the ninth

« The team is feeling good, » Arozarena said through a translator. « We will stay positive We came here knowing we were going to face a strong team »

The foundation for Tampa Bay’s success this fall isn’t offensive: After sticking 238 in the regular season to place 21st in the majors, the Rays hit a meager209 in the playoffs with a 692 OPS – the two worst among the four remaining teams – despite being 8-3

« We have to move the bats forward, without a doubt, » said Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash « We’ve been carried here by our throws and our defenses, that’s how we’re built, but we would definitely like to get a few (hits) It’s not easy for anyone now We have guys in our roster fighting it out a little « 

Indeed, the Rays came on the verge of their franchise’s second World Series appearance relying on that stellar pitching stick, superb team defense and the hot bat of Arozarena, who beat batting438 in the playoffs with 19 jaw-dropping hits

While no one matched Arozarena’s production for Tampa Bay in October, several teammates rallied in different games to deliver key strokes and runs that never happened in their first game of potential closure of the ALCS

While the final destination has not been determined, Arozarena’s playoffs are already a remarkable trip His 19 hits are the fourth most by a rookie in a single playoff

Dubbed « The Cuban Rocket, » Arozarena defected from Havana to Mexico in 2015 and signed as a free agent with the St Louis Cardinals for $ 1.25 million in 2016 He made his league debut last year for St Louis, but was traded to the Rays in the offseason

Arozarena missed the first 34 games of the regular season after catching COVID-19, then took the time to develop to full strength – he got a head start doing hundreds of push-ups a day while he was isolated
