Watch Mookie Betts Make Run-Saving Catch For Dodgers In Game 5 Vs. Braves

Betts saved L.A. a run with his defense

The Los Angeles Dodgers looked as if they were going to go down 3-0 in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves.

Los Angeles has to win Friday night if it wants to keep its postseason hopes alive.
