Braves try not to repeat history

ATLANTA (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers are eager to embrace a repeat of the storyline from last year’s NL Championship Series. The Atlanta Braves insist they won’t follow the same path as they host Game 6 tonight. Just like last year’s NL Championship Series, the Braves have led this year’s series 2-0 and 3-1. The Dodgers, who rallied to win the last three games of last year’s series against the Braves, avoided elimination with their 11-2 runaway in in Game 5 in Los Angeles on Thursday night. The Braves will start right-hander Ian Anderson in the potential clincher. The Dodgers had planned to go with ace Max Scherzer, but he’s been scratched after working 4 1/3 innings in Game 2. The Dodgers did not announce a reason for the decision, nor did they name a replacement.
