It was an up-and-down game, but the Dodgers did it. They beat Atlanta in a 4-3 contest to advance to the NLCS.
They went with the big gamble and started Clayton Kershaw on three days of rest. Before the game Don Mattingly talked about the decision to start their ace, "Then as we kept looking at it, it made more and more sense. If it worked out, again, if it worked out, that you'd be able to go Clayton Game 4. Then if something wouldn't work out here, have Zack for Game 5."
