Freese, who was a hero for the St. Louis Cardinals during the 2011 postseason, was asked by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports how special it is to get back to the playoffs.

The Braves were 1-3 against the Dodgers in Atlanta during the regular season, with Newcomb getting the only win, and 2-5 overall versus Los Angeles. The slugging shortstop, acquired from Baltimore in July, also had a run-scoring double in the first. This time the Indians struck first on a third-inning home run by Francisco Lindor off Astros starter Gerrit Cole to put Cleveland in front, 1-0.

Acuna connected in the second, right after Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler walked Braves starter Sean Newcomb on four pitches with the bases loaded.

Atlanta had a lead for a second, but the Dodgers refused to go quietly.

Atlanta's return to the postseason for the first time since 2013 yielded a familiar result. The Braves are trying to beat the long odds as the 11th.
