NLCS: Dodgers fans ready for a comeback win

Two games and two walk-offs resulted in two nights of Dodgers fans' hopes being crushed under the late-night Atlanta lights.  

FOX 11’s Phil Shuman says to be a Dodgers fan in "enemy territory" is an interesting experience and for the most part, it's a friendly rivalry.

Many fans from Southern California made the trip to Atlanta with special online deals for hotels, airfare and game tickets as low as $500. Despite the outcome and enduring the pain of watching two losses in the bottom of the ninth inning, they had fun.

Fans know there's nothing better than rooting for your hometown team. However, LA Dodger fans showed off their pride in a small sea of blue.

Some would say the Dodgers just didn't seem like the team they know. As Chris Taylor put it, they were "tired," and in starter Max Scherzer's words, they had a "dead arm."

In Game 1, manager Dave Roberts used seemingly everyone in the bullpen but Clayton Kershaw and pitching coach Mark Prior.  

In Game 2, using Julio Urias late in the game backfired and Roberts has been criticized for making that call.  

Now, the Dodgers and their fans have to move on.

Game 3 is set for early Tuesday afternoon and there will be more than 50,000 fans screaming their support of the team, and that definitely has an impact. 

It's going to be a challenge to even the series, but it's doable, one game at a time.

Dodgers fans certainly like their chances with Walker Buehler on the mound.  

But fans miss Max Muncy's home run bat and the Dodgers are without Clayton Kershaw, David Price, and Trevor Bauer. Those three pitchers earn about $30 million a year each.

Bauer remains in legal and moral jeopardy over sexual assault allegations that remain under investigation by the LA County District Attorney’s Office, with no timetable on making a decision.

As the Dodgers bring the series back to Los Angeles, they have a tough hill to climb to repeat a World Series title.

Let's go Blue!
