NLDS Series’ Pushed To Game 5

Jonathan Grant | October 8th, 2019

Both the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves came into Game 4 on Monday with one goal in mind: end the series as soon as possible. However, neither of them managed to do so, and the NLDS’ will both come down to pressure-packed Game 5’s in LA and Atlanta.


The St. Louis Cardinals rode big performances from Marcell Ozuna, Paul Goldschmidt, and Yadier Molina, who hit the tying single in the eighth and the winning sac fly in the bottom of the tenth in the 5-4 victory. The Braves had been led by Ozzie Albies, who had an RBI sac fly and a two-run homer that had given the Bravos a 4-3 lead in the fifth. In Washington, it was the Nationals that made sure they would force a Game 5 with a 6-1 win over the Dodgers. Max Scherzer saved the Nats from elimination with seven strong innings on the bump and only one run allowed. He had given up that run in the first, with Justin Turner smashing a homer. After that, the visitors got nothing. Anthony Rendon, soon to be a free agent, got two RBI’s to tie the game and put them in the lead before Ryan Zimmerman hit a three-run bomb to plate Rendon, who would go on to drive in another run later. From there, it was fairly smooth sailing as the series now moves back to the west coast on Wednesday for the decider.
