The Los Angeles Dodgers win Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the Washington Nationals Thursday night.
The Dodgers led 1-0 at the end of the third after four walks by Nationals pitcher Patrick Corbin in the first. At the bottom of the fourth, the Dodgers got their first and second hits of the game — Max Muncy followed immediately by Corey Seager.
Then Gavin Lux came on and on the fourth pitch of the at-bat, he send it over the wall in right field for a home run, giving the Dodgers a 5–0 lead at the time. After the game, the man who caught his HR went down to the clubhouse and gave Lux the ball he deserves to keep.
At 21 years and 314 days old, Lux became the youngest player in Dodger history to homer in a postseason game. The previous mark was held by Cody Bellinger, who homered at 22 years and 88 days in Game 3 of the 2017 NLDS against Arizona.
