The Los Angeles Dodgers are a hard team to kill. Somehow, they found a way against Kevin Gausman and the San Francisco Giants in San Francisco to win 9-2 in game two of the NLDS. Furthermore, the game was tight until Cody Bellinger broke it wide open.

Nearly a grand slam to the opposite field power alley, Bellinger has 8 home runs and 28 RBI in 210 career postseason at-bats and 57 games. Throw the slash numbers out the window and his .634 OPS, because with swings like this you will be remembered not for your stat line but for your moment.
Julio Urias recorded the win, already his 7th postseason victory.
Now things return to Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles for game three, where Max Scherzer will meet former Dodger Alex Wood in what should be the game that determines this series and the final chapter for one of these two teams.
