MLB: LA Dodgers Advance to NLCS on Juan Uribe's 2-Run HR

The Los Angeles Dodgers advanced to the 2013 NLCS after beating the Atlanta Braves 4-3 in Game 4 of their NLDS series on Monday, thanks to third baseman Juan Uribe's game-clinching home run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are advancing to the 2013 NLCS after they beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 in Game 4 of their NLDS series. 

The hero of the game was Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe, who smacked a two-run home run over the left field wall at Dodger Stadium in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly actually instructed Uribe to bunt, but after he failed to do so twice, he went yard on a 2-2 pitch from Braves reliever David Carpenter, to the delight of the 54,438 in attendance. 

It was yet another sorry loss for Atlanta, loser of seven consecutive postseason series. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez aptly summed it up for his team moments after the loss. 

He said,"To end the way it did tonight, it's going to hurt."

Carpenter also chimed in.

"It's tough to swallow. I wanted the ball in the eighth inning. I didn't get the job done." 

The Dodgers were actually up 2-0 in the early going, thanks to two Carl Crawford home runs. The Braves clawed their way back and tied things up in the fourth inning on an RBI single from Chris Johnson and a fielder's choice grounder from Andrelton Simmons. 

Elliot Johnson then tripled in the top of the seventh inning off Dodgers reliever Ronald Belisario to take the lead at 3-2.

Dodgers rookie phenom Yasiel Puig then doubled in the top of the eighth to set the stage for Uribe's homer

Closer Kenley Jansen struck out the side in the ninth, with the game's last strike at the expense of Braves left fielder Justin Upton.

The celebration was on for the Dodgers. 

It was also a sorry loss for 37-year-old starter Freddy Garcia, who was on pace for his seventh win in 11 postseason starts. He left the game when the Braves were up 3-2.

Garcia allowed eight hits and two walks. He also had six strikeouts.

His counterpart, 25-year-old Clayton Kershaw, made his second start of the series on just three days of rest. He allowed three hits and one walk to go along with six strikeouts of his own. 

By virtue of their victory, the Dodgers now await the winner of the other NLDS featuring the St. Louis Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates currently lead that series 2-1.
