Eddie Rosario gets walk-off hit vs Dodgers to put Braves up 2-0 in NLCS (Video)

Eddie Rosario gets the game-winning hit vs the Dodgers to pit the Braves up 2-0 in the 2021 NLCS

Less than 24 hours ago, the Atlanta Braves took Game 1 of the National League Championship Series against the defending World Series Champion Los Angeles Dodgers.

On Sunday night, the Braves found a way to do it again. Eddie Rosario scorched a ball up the middle that went passed the glove of Corey Seager and into center field. Dansby Swanson came around to score the game-winning run.

The inning before, Austin Riley cracked the game-tying RBI double to rally back from a 4-2 deficit and put the game at 4-4.

Before we all write off the Dodgers, remember this; the Braves were up 2-0 last year against the Dodgers in the NLCS and were up 3-1 before the Dodgers rallied to win and advance to the 2020 World Series.

Will the Dodgers be able to do the same, or will the Braves re-write history and get back to the Fall Classic?
