Game 5 of the NLCS ended in lopsided fashion on Thursday evening. The Atlanta Braves fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers, though Atlanta maintains a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Talking Chop Podcast is here with Episode 319 to discuss everything that transpired.
TC’s Brad Rowland and Scott Coleman touch on the following:
- Atlanta actually led in the first inning, scoring two runs within the first three batters
- Max Fried didn’t have his best stuff and it bit him in a few different ways
- Chris Taylor enjoyed the game of his life for Los Angeles, and AJ Pollock wasn’t far behind
- The Braves did manage to save their key bullpen pieces, but Chris Martin and Jacob Webb scuffled
- Atlanta’s offense went quiet for much of the evening
- Looking ahead to Game 6 and beyond, with a look at the schedule for the rest of the series, the pitching possibilities on Saturday, and the statistical logistics of two opportunities to win once
- Much, much more
