The Braves end the reign of the Dodgers to reach the World Series after 21 years

ANDThe king is dead. The Braves finished off the Dodgers in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series 2-4 and returned to Atlanta after a 21-year wait for the World Series and thus, reaching their first Fall Classic of the Century. XXI, where they will now seek to continue with the dream and cancel the Astros.

The opening had started sour for Buehler. The pitcher at the start allowed a run, but as time passed he seemed to keep the road well under control.

For Anderson, history seemed to be on his side, under his command the team was hanging rings; but finally the actions were difficult to him after Bellinger sealed a panty line to propel Turner, who had arrived earlier by way of the passport.

It seemed like it could all get under control for Buehler and Dave Roberts’s plan would barely come out with minimal damage. But the Braves took the measure, the house began to fill in the fourth chapter. D’Arnaud got the passport and then Adrianza’s double had put Atlanta in great position.

Then Rosario arrived and with a terrible hit orchestrated a brilliant three-run homer to put his ninth with a comfortable advantage. The Dodgers had wet gunpowder bread and were far from hurting the locals; although in the seventh roll they threatened before a bad relief of Jackson.

But then Matzek appeared. With the difficult task of putting out the fire with two men in scoring position and no outs. The firefighter came out with the fire extinguisher in a large plan and the third of chocolates was sent to avoid further damage. To make matters worse, the pitcher reached 11 strikeouts in the postseason with running backs in scoring position. Something that has not been seen since 1999, when reliever John Rocker had done it.

Although the Dodgers’ streamer took a greater amount of damage, the offense was more than off. Betts went blank in his four at-bats.

Will Smith arrived to close with a flourish. He didn’t allow any major shocks and Atlanta got a chance to fight in the Fall Classic. They will look for their fourth World Series although their rival will be the great offensive power of Houston.
