Juan Uribe hits thrilling 2-run home run to win game for Dodgers (Video)

Juan Uribe home runJuan Uribe helped send the Los Angeles Dodgers to the NLCS with a thrilling two-strike, two-run home run off Atlanta Braves reliever David Carpenter in the bottom of the eighth to give the Dodgers a 4-3 lead in Game 4 of their NLDS.

The Dodgers were down 3-2 and six outs away from the series going to a fifth game until Uribe delivered the big blow. His homer came after Yasiel Puig led off the inning with a two-strike double to right. Another great aspect of the homer is that it came after two failed sacrifice bunt attempts. When Uribe had the chance to swing away, he delivered with a bomb into the left field bullpen.

While the Dodgers move on to the NLCS, the Braves suffered their seventh straight playoff series loss in a row.
