Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez put his team up early over the Braves when he drove home A.J. Ellis from first base on a line drive double to right field off of Alex Wood in the top of the first inning in NLDS Game 2. It was a 2-2 fastball that Minor left up. Right fielder Justin Upton retrieved the ball and fired it into the infield as fast as he could, but cut-off man Elliott Johnson dropped the ball in the exchange, allowing Ellis to score without a throw.
The Braves are by no means out of this but they’re on the back foot after losing Game 1 by a 6-1 margin.
