The defending National League champion Dodgers became the first MLB team to win six straight division crowns since the New York Yankees captured nine American League East titles in a row from 1998-2006.

But after coming up just one game short of a World Series last season, can they finally win the whole darn thing this year?
First, the team has to face the NL East Champion Atlanta Braves. The first game of the series is tonight.

Larry and KPCC’s resident baseball experts A Martinez and Nick Roman sit down to talk about the Boys in Blue and the postseason.
