The Atlanta Braves were handed their first loss of the 2020 MLB postseason by the Los Angeles Dodgers 15-3 on Wednesday night in Game Three of the National League Championship Series at Globe Life Field down in Arlington, TX. The Braves’ lead in that series now stands at 2-1.
LA notched 11 runs in the top of the first to set a major league playoff record for most runs scored in one inning. The biggest hit of that inning came in the form of a grand slam from Max Muncy off of Grant Dayton.
Kyle Wright was charged with seven runs and five hits over just two-thirds of an inning in the loss for Atlanta; he also walked two and struck out none.
One bright spot of the night for the Braves was a solo home run from Cristian Pache in the bottom of the third, the first of his major league career.
