After two disappointing seasons in Los Angeles, Juan Uribe’s two-run homer in the bottom of the 8th inning propelled the Dodgers to the National League championship series for the first time since 2009.

The 4-3 comeback victory was made possible when Yasiel Puig doubled down the right-field line to begin the 8th. Manager Don Mattingly asked Uribe to bunt Puig to third, but was unsuccessful twice. On a 2-2 slider, Uribe continued to redeem himself for the past two seasons as he delivered a clutch two-run homer over the left-field fence and gave the Dodgers the 4-3 lead. Closer Kenley Jansen came on in the 9th and retired the side as the Dodgers celebrated on the field.

The Dodgers defeated the Braves 3-1 and will await the winner of the Pittsburgh Pirates-St.Louis Cardinals series.
