2021 NLCS Game 6 Thread: Oct 23 @ Braves

Buehler vs. Anderson, 5p.

In a move the Braves never saw coming, the Dodgers opted to save Max Scherzer for Game 8 rather than start him on regular rest in today's Game 6. This forces Walker Buehler into the starting role on four days rest, and god knows who might go if we get past the Braves today. It's a crazy move, but I suppose we have to trust the process.

The Dodgers should still be buzzing after the steamrolling of Atlanta in Game 5, where we had more (Chris) Taylor than a Duran Duran concert (AJ Pollock, with two HR, also provided solid backup vocals to the band). But this narrative has flipped with every game, so I'm not expecting the momentum to carry over to Truist Park. I'm just happy that the last home game of the NLCS was a celebratory one.

LET'S GO, DODGERS!

Braves get 3 hits in the first are on the board. 1-0.

karen said...

Walker looking very un-Walker like. 1-0 ATL in B1

QuadSevens said...

Two on with two out for Cody.

QuadSevens said...

Cody ties it up with a poke single to left!

QuadSevens said...

Braves send up a pinch hitter for Anderson in the 4th. Into the bullpen.

QuadSevens said...

Damn! PH double! Two on with two outs. Come on Walker!

QuadSevens said...

Shit.

QuadSevens said...

Rosario has been killing us all series.

karen said...

Shit

@Q7...Do you know what the story is behind Joc and his pearls?

QuadSevens said...

Through 4, we’re down 4-1.

QuadSevens said...

@karen The only story I’ve heard so far is he liked the way they looked. Nothing else behind it.

Steve Sax said...

I’m with Sosg orel tonight for dinner.

We are sad about the 4-1 score but this ain’t over yet!

And I’m still not drinking

karen said...

@Sax...and there ain't no fat lady singing.

karen said...

@Q7...I thought there was going to be some great reason for them, like they were his great grandmother's and the pearls were the only thing she was able to smuggle out during the Holocaust.

karen said...

Bazooka looked pretty good there.

QuadSevens said...

Bazooka puts up a zero. Going to the 6th. Time to get the bats going!

karen said...

That was a nasty pitch to Seager.

QuadSevens said...

Now Doc plays the matchup with Rosario. Great.

QuadSevens said...

Well that didn’t work. Vesia comes in and walks two batters.

QuadSevens said...

...make it three batters. And Vesia is done.

QuadSevens said...

Treinen Ks Riley! Let’s get some hits!

QuadSevens said...

CT3 nearly hits one out! Leadoff double!

QuadSevens said...

Double, walk, double! 4-2 now! Runners on second and third and nobody out! Let’s go!

QuadSevens said...

Pujols and Souza down on strikes. Mookie up now with two outs.

QuadSevens said...

Mookie down swinging. That hurts.

QuadSevens said...

Going to the 8th. 2-3-4 coming up for us. Still down by two.

QuadSevens said...

Quickly down in order. Ugly.

QuadSevens said...

Kenley puts up a zero. Last at bats. Need some hits. Down 4-2.

QuadSevens said...

We get nothing. Braves moving on to the World Series.
