BASEBALL

The Atlanta Braves stumble early, take lead to Dodgers rally to win, 6-5. Media release: If attempting to make sense of the game-changing home run Cody Bellinger hit off Luke Jackson on Tuesday night, it’s best to remember the blast occurred within what has become the Braves’ house of horrors.

Very little has gone right for the Braves whenever they have visited Dodger Stadium over the past eight years. But still, it was still surprising to see exactly how everything went wrong as they squandered a three-run eighth-inning lead in a 6-5 loss to the Dodgers in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series

“We were dead in the water,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “You could see it.” • Box score

Yep. Charlie Morton quickly rebounded from a 35-pitch first inning and Dodgers starter Walker Buehler was chased during a four-run fourth. Given the way Tyler Matzek, Jackson and closer Will Smith have pitched recently, there was reason to think the Braves were going to head back to their hotel with a 3-0 lead in this best-of-seven series.

But that was before Will Smith began the eighth with an excuse-me single and advanced to second on a one-out AJ Pollock single. Four pitches later, Bellinger went well above the strike zone to drill Jackson’s 95.6 mph fastball over the right-center-field wall for a game-tying three-run homer.

  • Next: Game 4 at 8 this evening on TBS. Atlanta  eads best of seven series, 2 games to 1. Winner advances to the World Series.
