Adrian Gonzalez #23 and Yasiel Puig #66 of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrate the Dodgers 13-6 victory against the Atlanta Braves during Game Three of the National League Division Series at Dodger Stadium on October 6, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
If thinking about the government shutdown bums you out, then how about some Dodger baseball to chase the blues away?
Last night, Carl Crawford's home run gave the Dodgers the lead, but later in the game, Crawford once again left the yard, this time literally. The Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 13-6, and if they win again tonight, they'll advance to the National League Championship Series.

That puts them four victories away from going to their first World Series since 1988. A Martinez visited Dodger Stadium last night. Dodger fans were thrilled to see how the club's fortunes have changed so quickly and what this championship chase has done for Angelenos:
Those were Dodger Fans Oscar Terriquez, Bobby Morales, Kristen Allfred, Richard Lee, Adam Wymat and Doug Payne.
The team has an explosive offense, dominant pitching, great defense and they seem to have luck on their side right now so L.A. could be in for a very special October.
