Dodgers extend lead against Braves in Game 1 of NLDS

6 Comments

The Braves got on the board against Clayton Kershaw in the bottom of the fourth inning, but the Dodgers got a run right back in the top of the sixth inning.

Jordan Walden took over for Luis Ayala to begin the sixth inning and retired Carl Crawford on a ground out, but he then gave up a single to Mark Ellis and an RBI double to Hanley Ramirez. Walden was able to get Adrian Gonzalez on ground out and strike out Yasiel Puig swinging to avoid any further damage, but the Dodgers lead this one 6-1 going into the bottom of the sixth.

And while Clayton Kershaw labored through the bottom of the fourth inning, he struck out the side in the fifth. Time is running out for the Braves.
