The Los Angeles Dodgers appear poised to easily sweep the Atlanta Braves in Game 3 of their 2018 NLDS series.

Manny Machado hit a three-run homer, David Freese came through again in the postseason and the Los Angeles Dodgers advanced to the NL Championship Series for the third year in a row, eliminating the Atlanta Braves with a 6-2 victory on Monday. By the time he exited the game, the Braves had gotten to Rich Hill for two runs on a Kurt Suzuki single to put them in front, 2-1.

Machado, a pending free agent acquired from the Baltimore Orioles in July, hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning off rookie reliever Chad Sobotka.

Hill was pulled after the Braves loaded the bases in the fifth with one out on an infield single, a walk and an error, but Ryan Madson (1-0) got out of the jam and ended up as the winning pitcher.

"It just goes to the depth of their team when you can do that", Snitker said. Alex Wood's first pitch in the bottom half of the inning was hit by Freeman for the go-ahead homer that stood as the difference for the Braves. "We're not built like that yet". Puig kept the sixth going with a popup down the line off Jonny Venters (0-1) that fell between second baseman Ozzie Albies and right fielder Nick Markakis.

Puig stole second without drawing a throw and came home when backup shortstop Charlie Culberson failed to knock down Freese's sharp grounder up the middle. He pitched two scoreless innings in relief of starter Mike Foltynewicz in Thursday's opener. Justin Verlander outdueled Corey Kluber in Game 1, no-hitting the Indians for five innings and giving up two runs before being pulled.

Finally, Foltynewicz blew a 97 miles per hour fastball by the.107 career hitter.

The Dodgers beat Milwaukee 4-3 in the season series.
