The Los Angeles Dodgers scored early and often on Sunday night to defeat the Atlanta Braves and take a 2-1 lead in the NLDS. The big inning for LA came in the fourth, when a string of hits and a two-run home run from Juan Uribe gave the Dodgers a 10-4 lead. That’s when thousands of fans at Dodger Stadium began mocking the Braves.
The first two games of the series at Turner Field featured plenty of tomahawk chopping. As most of you know, the tomahawk chop is a rather loud, obnoxious chant that Braves fans and Florida State fans are obsessed with. Unless the Braves come out hot on Wednesday night, Dodgers fans could assure that we hear that chant during every game of the NLDS.
As for the Braves players, they can always just pretend they’re playing at home when they see fans tomahawking at them. Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto didn’t exactly have that luxury last week in Pittsburgh.
