Braves will travel to LA to take on the Dodgers in NLDS
LOS ANGELES, Ca. - The Atlanta Braves needed to wait one more day to find out their postseason opponent.
Despite playing 162-games, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies needed 163 to determine an N.L. West division champion.
The two met Monday afternoon at Dodger Staidum to settle it all with the Dodgers coming away with a 5-2 victory, and their sixth straight N.L. West division title.
Los Angeles hols the tiebreaker over the Braves after going 5-2 against them in 2018, meaning they will have home-field advantage in their best of five series.
Games one and two will be Thursday and Friday of this week, at Dodger Stadium. The time is still TBD until after the N.L. Wild Card Game, scheduled to take place Tuesday night.
Games three and four (if necessary) will be at SunTrust Park in Atlanta on Sunday and Monday. This will be the first-ever postseason game in the park's history.
The Dodgers eliminated the Braves in their last postseason appearance back in 2013. The Braves previously defeated the Dodgers in the NLDS back in 1996.
The Chicago Cubs will host the Rockies Tuesday night in the N.L. Wild Card game with the winner playing the N.L. Central champion, Milwaukee Brewers.
