4 Deep Drives Under New Rules Wrap Up NLCS

 Games 3 and 4 of the Statis-Pro NLCS gave is our first chance to use the new ballpark charts for deep drives - and we had 4 of them.

The Dodgers Pollock drove a deep drive in the top of the 6th of Game 3 and the "25" scraped out of the park (11-25 is a homer with a right handed batter in a game in Atlanta) to break a tie and give the Dodgers a 3-2 lead.

In the 8th the Dodgers Trea Turner drove a deep drive and the "38" was a double (26-52 is a double for a eighty). Turner was later thrown out at home on a Betts single but for the third game in a row the Dodgers rallied from behind - winning 7-2.

In Game 4, the Dodgers Justin Turner hit a deep drive and his "57" for a single (53-76 is a single, runners advance 2).

It was not until the bottom of the 9th that Pederson gave the Braves their first deep drive, and his "23" more easily cleared the fence (for a lefty, an 11-41 is a homer in Atlanta). However, it was not enough as the Dodgers win 7-4 to take the series - which their fans believe they would have done without all the injuries late.

They await the Red Sox-Astros winner in the Statis-pro World Series.
