It’s starting to smell like postseason baseball in L.A. again.

(HOLLYWOOD, Calif.) — Dodgers come off back-to-back sweeps against the Milwaukee Brewers and the San Diego Padres. The Dodgers have advanced to the National Championship League Series against the Atlanta Braves.
Game 3 of the series against the Padres really flexed the Dodgers’ depth. The Dodgers have a deep and powerful lineup.
The Dodgers talent from the hitters like Justin Turner and Joc Pederson to the pitchers like Clayton Kershaw and Joe Kelly are needed to put the Braves away.
The Braves have just scored one less run than the Dodgers this season the MLB said. It’s pretty fair to say they are matched up in offense. The Braves present an offense threat with the duo of Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuna Jr. They also have the young pitching tandem of Max Fried and Ian Anderson. Braves have to come out hitting to beat this Dodgers team.
This series will be home of the two top offenses of the league. The Series began on Oct.12, 2020.
The Dodgers have their eighth straight division title and made it to the World Series two consecutive times the MLB said. They have not won a World Series since 1988. The Braves have not won a World Series since 1995. It is going to be very interesting watching two of the top offenses going at it to advance to the World Series.
