(ATLANTA) – The Los Angeles Dodgers went through all the expected motions after winning a playoff series. Then, just like that, their focus turned to bigger goals ahead. For a power-packed team that hasn't won a World Series since 1988, nothing less will do. The Dodgers finished off the Atlanta Braves with a 6-2 victory Monday in the NL Division Series. Manny Machado hit a three run homer and David Freese came through again in the postseason to lead the Dodgers into the NL Championship Series for the third year in a row. Los Angeles moved on to face the Brewers after taking out the Baby Braves 3-1 in the best-of-five series. Of course, this is just what the Dodgers had in mind when they bolstered their already power-packed lineup by acquiring the slugging shortstop from lowly Baltimore back in July. Coming off a tense victory in Game 3, the Baby Braves grabbed the lead on pinch-hitter Kurt Suzuki's two-run single in the fourth. But Freese, the 2011 World Series MVP with St. Louis, countered with a pinch-hit single of his own in the sixth off Brad Bach, driving home Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig for a 3-2 lead. Game 1 of the NLCS is Friday night in Milwaukee, the Dodgers' fourth championship series in six seasons.
