Thanks to three home runs in Game 5 by the Dodgers’ Chris Taylor, the National League Championship Series is still alive. But unlike last season when the Dodgers overcame a three-games-to-one deficit in the NLCS, this time LA will have to finish the job in Atlanta. Or somewhere in the general vicinity of Atlanta. I’m pretty sure the Braves stadium is somewhere in Georgia.
