The Los Angeles Dodgers fought back into the National League Championship Series with a historic victory Wednesday and now trailing 2-1 in the best-of-seven set, can tie things up with a win in Game 4 on Thursday against the Atlanta Braves.
The Dodgers scored 11 times in the first inning of Game 3, setting the record for most runs in an inning in the postseason.
