It was another magical night for the Atlanta Braves who are now just two wins away from the World Series.

Eddie Rosario delivered Atlanta’s second consecutive hit in the ninth inning, giving them a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday and a dominant 2-0 lead in the National League Championship Series.

Rosario’s fourth hit of the game was a two-out single off the glove of shortstop Corey Seager after the Atlanta Braves rallied twice from a two-run deficit.

Rosario received with unstoppable Kenley Jansen, relieved of the Dodgers. Seager attempted a backhand, but the ball slipped from his glove into center field. There was no chance to take out Dansby Swanson, who crossed the plate.

The series resumes in Los Angeles, where the third game of the best-of-seven series is scheduled for Tuesday night. The Atlanta Braves are halfway through their first World Series appearance since 1999, but they still can’t celebrate.

A year ago, Atlanta had a 2-0 lead and 3-1 over the Dodgers in the NLCS, only to lose the last three games of a series played in Arlington, Texas, due to the pandemic. Los Angeles beat Tampa Bay in the World Series, while the Atlanta Braves had to settle for preparing for another shot.

Seventy-three of the 87 teams that took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven baseball postseason series have won. Right-hander Walker Buehler (0-1, 3.38 postseason ERA) will be for the Dodgers in Game 3 against the Atlanta Braves, who will send right-hander Charlie Morton (0-1, 3.86).
