In a year that seemed so invincible, the unthinkable has happened.

The #Dodgers are done early. The Dodgers’ journey toward a second consecutive World Series championship is prematurely, exasperatingly, go-ahead-and-scream-now finished.

It ended with a lunging stop, a whipping throw, a stretching catch. It ended with one last Dodgers shot caught, one last Dodgers runner stalled, one last Dodgers hope expired.

It ended.

latimes.com/sports/dodgers…
The scrappy Atlanta Braves stepped on an exhausted Dodgers pitcher, shut down a depleted Dodgers offense, and breathlessly battled to a 4-2 win to clinch a four-games-to-two victory in the #NLCS.

.@Jack_A_Harris: Unlike their 3-1 comeback against the Braves in last year’s neutral-site #NLCS, they’ll have to win twice at Truist Park this time to get back to the World Series.

"The #Dodgers were deflated, decimated and desperate for one reason, any reason, to continue clutching to the fraying fringes of a season.

Chris Taylor gave them three." - @BillPlaschke

"Hold the eulogy. Keep the lights on. Clear your weekend. This #NLCS lives.

Trailing 3 games to 1 and on the verge of elimination, the #Dodgers used a historic three home runs by Taylor on Thursday night at Dodger Stadium to pound out an 11-2 victory."

It’s also pretty legendary, as Taylor became the first player in major league history to hit three home runs in an elimination game.

“This is why you play the game. ... These are moments we’re going to look back on for the rest of our lives, and it’s pretty cool,” said Taylor.

Momentum? Couldn’t find it.

Season? About to lose it.

One night after one of the most emotional comeback playoff victories in franchise history, the Dodgers inexplicably strolled into Chavez Ravine on Wednesday night without focus or fight.

latimes.com/sports/dodgers…
They followed one game’s miracle with nine innings of nothingness.

Atlanta beat the Dodgers with six relief pitchers, beat them while facing 20-game winner Julio Urías, beat them silly and sideways and maybe even beat them into next season.

latimes.com/sports/dodgers…
The 9-2 victory by Atlanta in Game 4 of #NLCS at Dodger Stadium gave them a three-games-to-one lead that is the exact same edge they held in this exact same series last year before the Dodgers came storming back to win it.

The Dodgers are hoping a day off & better plate discipline will help them crawl out of an 0-2 series hole in Game 3.

The onus in Game 3 will fall on Buehler to stifle Atlanta. He will start on extra rest after pitching in Game 4 of the NLDS last Tuesday.

The #Dodgers last week concluded one of the most thrilling 5-game series in MLB history against their rivals in a winner-take-all clash in San Francisco, hopped on a cross-country flight to Atlanta on Friday & dug themselves a hole over the weekend.

When the whirlwind was over, after they fell behind 0-2 to the Atlanta Braves in the #NLCS for the second straight year on two walk-off losses, it was obvious:

The Dodgers were sapped.

“We’re tired,” utility man Chris Taylor said in the wake of Sunday’s 5-4 loss in Game 2. “We’re ready to get home.”

Once they get home, however, the Dodgers will still need to overcome the odds.

For the Dodgers to do so, here are 5 tips that could help:

The #Dodgers lost their minds, then they lost the game.

There is no other way to explain it. There is no possible way to excuse it. There is no way around it.

Julio Urías? Instead of Blake Treinen or Kenley Jansen?

latimes.com/sports/dodgers…
You’re really going to bring in Urías in the 8th inning with a 2-run lead & the best back-end bullpen in baseball waiting to work?

The Dodgers outsmarted themselves, embarrassed themselves, & then beat themselves in a 5-4 loss to Atlanta in #NLCS Game 2.

An organization that considers its players to be interchangeable parts took this philosophy too far in the eighth inning and it burned them beyond belief.

The brainiest organization in baseball suddenly looks like the most foolish.

The Dodgers were one timely hit, one blast, one crooked number away from withstanding the Atlanta Braves’ best punch Saturday night.

But the mercurial offense didn’t produce for the final five innings.
