Austin Riley was the Atlanta Braves hero who defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 in Game 1 of the NLCS on Saturday night in Atlanta.
The Braves scored the opening goal, and the Dodgers’ opening round Corey Knebel took the lead 1-0 in a wild pitch. The Dodgers tied the game second with Chris Taylor’s RBI single.
Will Smith hit the Dodgers tiebreaker solo home run at the top of the fourth inning to 2-1 but the lead didn’t last long. Riley sent the ball to the left wing wall in the lower half of the inning to draw the match.
When Riley knocked in Ozzie Albies on a walk-off hit, the score remained tied until the end of the ninth.
