Risk-taking decisions and the element of surprise put the Dodgers over the Braves at last night's series win. First, Dodgers management made the contentious call to start with fatigued ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw. The left-hander would throw the Braves off their game. Then Dodger Carl Crawford hit a leadoff homer to give the Dodgers momentum for the early innings. When the Braves caught up and over, it looks as though a game five might need to be the decider. Then the third star of the night, Juan Uribe pulled out a power hit home-run at the bottom of the eighth to send the Dodgers to the National League Championship Series.

The sell-out stadium erupted in a blast of sound. Who was the star of the night for you - on or off the field?
