"My heart's still pounding", he said, moments after the last out. "We took a huge step forward this year".

The Dodgers shut out the Braves in the first two games at Los Angeles before losing 6-5 on Sunday at Atlanta. Ronald Acuna Jr. delivered just that with a grand slam in the second inning. An inning earlier, David Freese had put the Dodgers ahead with a two-run pinch single. ". We had our chances".

The Atlanta Braves had a great season, but they're no match for this loaded Dodgers team. "But yeah, to take us over the top and take the lead again, we couldn't get that one extra hit".

The announced crowd of 39,586 was almost 3,000 smaller than the previous night's record SunTrust Park turnout, perhaps because of a 4:30 p.m. start time that coincided with Atlanta's notorious rush hour.

"He continues to amaze", Freeman said of Acuna.

Roberts stuck with Buehler, who allowed no baserunners in the next three innings.

"We all know that there's a lot more work to be done", Robert said.

Newcomb, who pitched two scoreless innings of relief in Game 1, had a no-hitter through 8 2/3 innings against the Dodgers in Atlanta on July 29, but had his ups and downs the rest of the season while finishing 12-9 with a 3.90 ERA. "You just gotta be ready". He comes into Game 4 with a.500 on-base percentage in the series while also homering twice.

"Hopefully we'll have some more big moments during this postseason and this isn't the only one", Freeman said. Los Angeles had a franchise-record 235 homers during the regular season and hit eight more against the Braves, accounting for 14 of its 20 runs.

Tagged at the outset, Buehler regained control as the Dodgers began their rally.

Kevin Gausman was originally scheduled to start before the late switch to Newcomb.

Matt Kemp, who led off the Dodgers' sixth with a double, was cut down at the plate trying to score on a ground ball.

Mantle? That's a new name for Acuna. "I wasn't even born". If needed, Game 5 would be Wednesday at Los Angeles. Los Angeles moved on to face the Brewers after taking out the Baby Braves 3-1 in the best-of-five series. "He went two innings, 50 pitches [in Game 1]".

Los Angeles leads the NLDS 2-1 over Atlanta and can clinch the series with a win. "It's still elimination, so we're going to try and go with the best we got".
