Juan Uribe sends Atlanta Braves home

Game 4 of the NLDS provided late heroics from the mighty Dodgers as they rallied their way past the Atlanta Braves thanks to a lead-off double by Yasiel Puig in the bottom of the eighth inning with the Dodgers down a run and Juan Uribe up to the plate. His only responsibility was to bunt Puig over to third base. Well, small ball isn't Uribe's strongest suit as he failed twice trying to bunt Puig over. With two strikes on Uribe, his only option was to protect the plate and hope for the best. Take a look at what happens next:

I wonder does Braves pitcher, David Carpenter, wished Uribe would have laid that bunt down now? Hmmm, a former Giant hitter in Juan Uribe and a former Giants pitcher in Brian Wilson helps the Dodgers advance to the NLCS, go figure! Dodgers win 4-3 and win the series 3-1. They will play the winner of Pittsburgh/St. Louis who are tied at 2-2 in the best of five.
