Uribe's HR sends Dodgers to NLCS
Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Juan Uribe's two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth put the Los Angeles Dodgers back in the National League Championship Series for the first time since 2009.
Uribe's second career postseason go-ahead homer in eighth inning or later lifted the Dodgers over the Atlanta Braves, 4-3, in Game 4 of their National League Division Series.
Holding a 3-2 lead, the Braves sent David Carpenter (0-1) to the mound. Yasiel Puig led off with a double down the right-field line. Uribe then stepped to the plate and smacked a 2-2 pitch over the wall in left.
Kenley Jansen tossed a perfect ninth to put the Dodgers in the NLCS for the third time in the past six years.
Los Angeles will face either St. Louis or Pittsburgh in the next round. The Cardinals beat the Pirates on Monday to even their Division Series at two games apiece.
