Tweets Of The Night: Dodgers Take 2-1 NLDS Series Lead Over Braves

The Dodgers are coming back home to Dodger Stadium after the Braves tied the series at 1-1 with a 4-3 victory in Game 2 of the NLDS. The Dodgers had countless opportunities throughout the game, but were unable to generate enough offense to get the victory.

Tonight, the Dodgers gave the ball to rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu and the 26-year-old left-hander was hoping to give the Dodgers a 2-1 series lead. Ryu was 14-8 during the regular season and had a 3.00 ERA. Although this was his first year in the big leagues, Ryu does have professional experience in the Korean Baseball Organization, the Beijing Olympics, and the 2009 World Baseball Classic. He pitched in the gold medal game for Korea in the Olympics and earned the win.

The Braves had a rookie of their own on the mound tonight, Julio Teheran and the 22-year-old right-hander is coming off a successful rookie campaign. He went 14-8 and had a 3.20 ERA during the regular season.
Surprisingly, neither team made any changes to their lineups as the Dodgers were looking to keep home field advantage in the series.

Lets get to the tweets of the night.
