In Game 1, the Dodgers jumped out to a 5-0 lead thanks to two RBIs from Soler and a two-run homer from Adam Duvall. Freeman and Austin Riley recorded one hit and one RBI each for Atlanta, which mustered 12 hits in all.

Charlie Morton, who is a starter for the Astros, got hit in his left leg. He had to leave the game after getting three more outs. It turned out he had a broken leg.

AJ Minter had a good game. He pitched for 2.2 innings and the bullpen only gave up two runs. The real news, though, is that their ace pitcher got hurt. If they go into a new series, Atlanta might really miss him then because he is their best pitcher on the team!
