The Los Angeles Dodgers looked like they were headed toward a second consecutive loss in the NLDS against the Washington Nationals on Sunday night. Anibal Sanchez was dealing for the Nats and the Dodgers’ vaunted offense had only managed to scrap one run across the plate in five innings.
However, the ball got passed to Patrick Corbin, and the Dodgers- ever so patient- took full advantage. They exploded for seven runs in the sixth inning off the hurler, putting them into an 8-2 lead. Despite a scare in the next half-inning, the Nats only plated two runners, and the Dodgers ended up increasing their lead back to six as they won 10-4 to take control of the series again. Justin Turner had the home run that busted the game open, while Russell Martin had a big double in the rally and a home run in the ninth for the Dodgers.
