Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN

Mookie Betts went 4-for-4 with a stolen base Thursday as the Dodgers bested the Giants 2-1 to advance to the NLCS against the Braves. It'll be a rematch of last year's NLCS. Cody Bellinger had the go-ahead hit for the Dodgers in the ninth. They scored their first run in the sixth, when Corey Seager doubled in Betts. Betts had his worst month of the year in September, but he's 11-for-24 with a homer and just two strikeouts in the postseason.

According to David O'Brien of The Athletic, the Braves are "operating as if" Jorge Soler (COVID-19) will miss the NLCS. Soler landed on the COVID-19 injured list on Tuesday afternoon, just before the Braves finished off the Brewers in Game 4 of the best-of-five National League Division Series. He'll still be in quarantine when the best-of-seven National League Championship Series gets underway on Saturday, though MLB will allow him to return mid-series if he passes through the necessary protocols. Cristian Pache filled Soler's spot on the NLDS roster.
