 LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers earned themselves a three-day break after ousting Atlanta to win the National League division series, and they can use the time off to sort out some issues.
The team took Tuesday off to rest after closing out the Braves in four games with a dramatic 4-3 victory on Monday. As the first team to advance from the division series, the Dodgers get the most time to reset their rotation, make bullpen decisions and heal up nagging injuries to Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier.
They'll be awaiting their opponent in the NL championship series, the winner of Wednesday night's decisive Game 5 between Pittsburgh and St. Louis. The NLCS opens Friday, in Los Angeles if Pittsburgh wins, or in St. Louis if the Cardinals advance.
Los Angeles is five wins from its first World Series appearance since 1988, when it won the championship.
