The Atlanta Braves are one win away from their first trip to the World Series since 1999. After seeing the Dodgers bust through with an eighth-inning comeback to win Game 3, the Braves bounced back in a big way Wednesday to take NLCS Game 4, 9-2, at Dodger Stadium. Atlanta now owns a 3-1 series lead in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.

The Houston Astros pulled away from the Red Sox for a 9-1 victory in ALCS Game 5 on Wednesday and have now shocked Boston by taking back-to-back games at Fenway Park. The Game 5 result means that the Red Sox — who were just six outs away from a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven ALCS on Tuesday night — now face a 3-2 deficit heading to Friday’s Game 6 in Houston. The Astros, meanwhile, are now just one win away from their third AL pennant in the last five years and have two chances at home to get it done.
