The Atlanta Braves are one win away from a World Series berth, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are on the verge of another very disappointing playoff exit. Atlanta throttled the Dodgers 10-2 in Game 4 to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. The Braves broke the game wide open with a sixth-run sixth inning, and Marcell Ozuna put together a monster night at the plate.

Ozuna crushed two home runs, with his first dinger of the game coming off Clayton Kershaw to tie the game 1-1 in the bottom of the fourth.

That remained the score until the bottom of the sixth, when the Braves knocked around Kershaw and the Los Angeles bullpen.

In the seventh inning, Ozuna blasted his second dinger of the game.

And in the ninth, Ozuna drove in the Braves’ 10th run on the night with a single, giving him four hits and four runs batted in.

Entering the postseason, the juggernaut Dodgers were clear World Series favorites, and heavy NL favorites. But if they can’t win three consecutive games, they will have left the postseason without a title for the eighth straight year. And with quite possibly their best roster during this entire run, following the acquisition of Mookie Betts.

The Braves will try to put an end to this series Friday in Game 5, and if they can do that, it will be their first NL pennant since 1999.
