The National League Championship Series kicked off on Saturday, with the Atlanta Braves defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1. Game 2 is scheduled for Sunday evening.

The regular season winning and losing records show a lopsided affair here. The Dodgers were one of 23 teams in MLB history to win at least 106 games. The Braves had the worst record among teams in the playoffs at 88-73. In an interesting twist, the Braves actually have home court advantage for this series, despite having won 18 fewer games in the regular season because the Dodgers are a wild card.

The Braves arrive here by a strange route. Until July, they had never exceeded 0.500, not even a single day. They also lost their superstar, Ronald Acuña, Jr. due to a torn ACL. Something in early August clicked with that group, however, as the Braves have won 2/3 of their last 54 games to win the NL East. They went on to claim three straight wins over the Brewers after losing Game 1 of the NLDS to advance to their second straight NLCS.

The Dodgers made history by winning 106 games and not finishing in first place. They barely stood up to the Cardinals in the wild game with a Chris Taylor two-point shot. They went on to win back-to-back elimination games against the Giants to 107 wins in one of the most thrilling NLDS we’ve ever seen. They are certainly tested a lot in combat after those first two rounds in addition to being World Series champions and having made the playoffs for nine consecutive seasons.

This is a rematch of the 2020 NLCS, when the Braves held a three-to-one lead in the series before the Dodgers rolled off three straight wins to claim the NL pennant.
