Atlanta led 2-1 in the sixth before Will Smith homered off Will Smith to give the Dodgers the lead for good. Game 6 will feature a rematch of the pitching matchup from Game 1 between...

The Daily Chop: Braves struggle in Game 5 loss to Dodgers

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The Braves couldn’t close the resilient Dodgers out on Friday. Friday night was a bit of a rough night for the home team. After scratching together a couple of runs off of Dustin May and AJ Minter absolutely shoving to start the game for three scoreless innings, things quickly unraveled thanks to Will Smith, both of them, and Corey Seager who helped lead the offensive in the sixth and seventh innings that ended up giving LA a substantial lead. The Braves kept fighting along....even Josh Tomlin, who gave Braves fans a real fright in Game Two, performed ably...

Braves Start Nick Markakis while Chris Taylor, Will Smith, and A.J. Pollock start for Dodgers

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports Both Teams look to have early success to work with a lead as Game 5 progresses. Both the Braves and the Dodgers have decided to feature some firepower in their lineups for Game 5. In the case of the Braves, they seem to think they could face Dustin May a few times through the order tonight. In the case of the Dodgers, it may be less about the handiness of “opener” A.J. Minter, and more about who gives them the best chance to score runs as they are on the brink of elimination. Game 5 and a trip to the #WorldSeries on the line.#MixItUp...

The Daily Chop: Braves set to head to Houston for NLDS

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The Braves are about to head to the playoff bubble and prepare for the start of the NLDS on Tuesday. This feels like the calm before the storm. Other than some brief and fairly innocuous interviews with guys like Brian Snitker and Will Smith, it was a pretty quiet day in Braves country as the team did workouts to keep guys loose, but still take it easy enough to take advantage of the extra off day after their convincing playoff series victory over the Reds and prepare for their matchup with the surprising Miami Marlins in the NLDS. However, this is going to...
