Dodgers win more breathing room with 2-1 victory; 5th NLCS game starts at 2:05 pm today

The Dodgers beat the Brewers 2-1 on Tuesday night during the fourth game of the National League Championship Series. The victory in a game that went into extra innings means both teams are now even at 2 wins each as they prepare for their 5th game, which starts at 2:05 pm today at Dodger Stadium.

Says the New York Times:

“The 2-1 victory did more than just even the series at two games apiece. It meant the Dodgers would not be facing elimination when they and the Brewers got right back on the field for Game 5 on Wednesday afternoon. It meant, with their ace, Clayton Kershaw, due to start that game, that they would have a chance to take control of the series.”

While the teams are preparing for the 5th game, residents who live in Echo Park, Solano Canyon and other stadium-adjacent areas should also be preparing for extra traffic heading home. The end of today’s match will probably coincide with the evening rush hour.
