The Atlanta Braves need to win three straight games against the Los Angeles Dodgers to avoid suffering a ninth consecutive playoff elimination dating to 2001. Newcomb almost pitched a no-hitter against Los Angeles in July, and the Dodgers have beaten right-handers in the first two games of the series. The Dodgers hold a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series.
Freddie Freeman put the Atlanta Braves ahead, then watched from first base as they nearly give away the lead - and possibly their whole season. He got the Dodgers going in Game 4 with a run-scoring double in the first, and effectively wrapped up the series with his seventh-inning shot off rookie Chad Sobotka that cleared the Dodgers' bullpen in left.
Acuna's second-inning grand slam came on a 3-1 fastball after Walker Buehler had given the Braves their first run of the series on a two-out, four-pitch walk to opposing starter Sean Newcomb, a.044 hitter with one RBI in the regular season.
Atlanta has lost nine straight playoff appearances, their last victory coming 17 long years ago against a team that is no longer in the National League.

"It just goes to the depth of their team when you can do that", Snitker said. Los Angeles had a franchise-record 235 homers during the regular season and hit eight more against the Braves, accounting for 14 of its 20 runs. Freddie Freeman is hitting.310 with 191 hits and 23 home runs in 161 games this year for the Braves. 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.
"They played better baseball than we did", Culberson said.
The Braves are bringing back right-hander Mike Foltynewicz on three days' rest to make the start. David Freese, picked up from Pittsburgh just minutes before the trade deadline, came through with a pinch-hit, two-run single that put the Dodgers ahead to stay in the sixth.
Game 4 is Monday afternoon at Atlanta. Toussaint tossed one scoreless inning. He also has registered a 2.03 ERA since the All-Star break and is a big reason why the Dodgers made the postseason. He shared the team lead with Foltynewicz by starting 31 games.
