MLB Roundtable: NLDS Predictions

  MLB Roundtable: NLDS Predictions Giants or Dodgers? Brewers or Braves? Our experts make their picks. Each of the four remaining National League teams are playing without at least one of their best players due to injury.The Dodgers will not have first baseman Max Muncy and lefthander Clayton Kershaw when they face the rival Giants in the postseason for the first time ever. Meanwhile, San Francisco's lineup will be missing Brandon Belt, who led the team with 29 home runs despite playing in just 97 games. He fractured his thumb less than two weeks ago.

The Los Angeles Dodgers can force a winner-take-all Game 7 when they take on the Atlanta Braves in a must-win Game 6 of the 2021 NLCS on Saturday at Truist Park in Atlanta. The Dodgers fought off elimination on Thursday with an 11-2 victory in Game 5 in Los Angeles. Down 3-2 in the best-of-seven series, the Dodgers still need two more wins to advance to the franchise's fourth World Series in five years and face the American League champion Houston Astros. Los Angeles will start Walker Buehler on short rest after Max Scherzer was scratched from his start (arm fatigue). Ian Anderson (0-0, 6.00 ERA) will start for Atlanta.

The Complete Chaos of the Championship Series

  The Complete Chaos of the Championship Series It took only two games each for both the American League and National League Championship Series to diverge into complete chaos. No specific formula can help us understand how we got here. We can’t retrace our steps back to the first pitch of the first game, or even the first pitch of the first game, or even playoff series, to figure out the first wrong turn. This isn’t one of those situations where one missing ingredient—It needs oregano!—can save the meal. It’s as if the four managers were going to a potluck, and for whatever reason, are now bringing something completely different from what they had promised.

Why you should back the Dodgers

Los Angeles has had postseason success against Anderson. In three playoff starts against the Dodgers, Anderson has lasted a total of 10 innings and given up four earned runs. He has struck out nine while walking 10. By contrast, in three playoff starts against other teams, he has not given up a run in 16⅔ innings and has struck out 23 while walking just three.

Los Angeles has also been great in elimination games. With their win in Game 5, the Dodgers have won seven straight games when facing elimination dating to last season. That streak includes four straight wins over Atlanta, which held a 3-1 lead over Los Angeles in the 2020 NLCS before losing in seven games.

Give the Braves Some Praise

  Give the Braves Some Praise By this time tomorrow, we could have our first World Series team. Remarkably, the 88-win Braves are one win away from eliminating the defending-champion Dodgers. A little bit later in this newsletter, Stephanie Apstein and Emma Baccellieri dig into what’s ailed Los Angeles so far in the NLCS. And if tonight really is the end the Dodgers, there will be plenty more time for us to go into what has gone wrong. Instead, let’s shine a light on all that Atlanta has done so well. © Provided by Sports Illustrated Eddie Rosario Kirby Lee/USA TODAY Sports The Braves have played much cleaner baseball than the Dodgers.

Why you should back the Braves

Rosario's bat has been on fire in the postseason. In nine playoff games, he is hitting .471 and slugging .735 with an OPS of 1.249. He has hit safely in all nine games. In the NLCS alone, Rosario is hitting .571 and slugging 1.000 with an OPS of 1.609.

In addition, Atlanta faces a pitching-depleted Los Angeles team that has been forced to switch to Plan B with Scherzer unable to start. Buehler will start on just three days' rest like he did in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Giants. In that game he gave up just one run but lasted just 4⅓ innings while pitching on short rest for the first time in his career. In Game 3 against the Braves on Tuesday, he allowed four runs (two earned) and threw 76 pitches in 3⅔ innings.
