Braves have Dodgers reeling in NLCS after two walk-off wins, big lead

ATLANTA — Mookie Betts slowly walked out of the Los Angeles Dodgers clubhouse late Sunday night, hung a quick right, strolled down the long corridor at Truist Park toward the team bus and could still see Atlanta fans partying like it was 1999.

There was no anger, just frustration.

No excuses, just respect and admiration for the other side.

Betts, the Dodgers’ All-Star outfielder and unofficial captain, would love to declare the Dodgers will recover from their stunning 2-0 deficit in the National League Championship Series to the Braves.

But after what he just witnessed the past 48 hours, he wanted to deal with reality, not fantasy.

The Braves are talented. They may have won 18 fewer games (106 to 88) than the Dodgers during the regular season — in an inferior division — but Betts is here to say they are hardly a fluke.
