With their 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday, the Dodgers tied the series to force a Game 7 on Sunday.

Mookie Betts led off the game with an infield single on the first pitch, Corey Seager followed with a double on the next pitch, which scored Betts from first base.

Anderson, Wilson and teammates Ronald Acuña Jr., Ozzie Albies and Cristian Pache weren't born the last time the Braves played a Game 7 in the 1996 NLCS, and manager Brian Snitker said he has never been part of one.
