With a pair of home runs, Corey Seager led the comeback of the Dodgers that this Friday beat the Braves 7-3 to add their second victory of the National League Championship Series and avoid elimination.

Atlanta had taken the lead with a hairline in the first episode, thanks to a sacrifice fly by Travis d'Arnaud, and another in the second with a single by Cristian Pache.

Then Seager appeared and dispatched his first homer of the game in the fourth inning to discount with a run.

Two innings later, on one of the most talked about plays of the game, Dodgers catcher Will Smith turned the score around with a huge three-run homer that connected the Braves reliever with the same name.

Already in the seventh, with the score 4-2, Mookie Betts pushed one more for the Californians and Seager - again with a home run - added the last two to force a sixth game.

d'Arnaud grounded to first base pushed a hairline for Atlanta in the eighth, but there was nothing to do.

Brusdar Graterol (11.57) took the mound and completed a perfect one-inning relief that closed out Ozzie Albies with a strikeout to tie off any Braves' hopes.
