LOS ANGELES - It was a rough night for Braves fans looking for a win in Game One of the National League Division Series against the Dodgers. The team lost 6-0 in Los Angeles Thursday night. But the Braves are looking to bounce back Friday night in the best-of-five series.
The sun did rise again in Los Angeles, albeit little later than on the Braves’ home turf of SunTrust Park. The Braves are handling the loss and taking it just fine and already are getting ready for Game Two.
Bouncing back Friday night, the key is moving on as they did during the regular season. Friday players said, “they’ve done this before. That's the nature of baseball. You’re will lose games. this one may feel a little bigger to us on the outside.” Players say treat it like anything.
“Yeah, we want to win each game, but it's the best of 5 and luckily enough, we have a few more chances,” said Charlie Culberson, Braves shortstop.
“We are all real positive this is going to be a good series for us and it's only Game One,” said Ender Inciarte, Braves centerfielder.
“There's a lot of positives to take out of it. The score not being one, but there were so many other things,” said Tyler Flowers, Braves catcher.
“You could still win a series. We're playing best of three. We still got a chance here. We just got to come out here and score some runs early and hopefully, we can jump on them quick,” said Freddie Freeman, Braves first baseman.
As for the team's mood, FOX 5’s Natalie Fultz got the inside scoop. She went to breakfast Friday morning and spoke to the cashier who said several Braves players went to that same restaurant and they are all in good spirits and had hearty appetites and that's a good sign for Game Two.
