The Los Angeles Dodgers had their backs against the wall heading into Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves, but they rose to the occasion in the very first inning.

The 11 runs came against the Atlanta Braves, who were also on the wrong side of matching the previous mark.

When Braves pitchers allowed 10 runs in the first inning of Game 5 in last year's NL Division Series against St. Louis, it didn't seem possible they could have a worse first inning in the postseason.

The slam by Muncy off reliever Grant Dayton was the third homer in the inning, matching another LCS record.

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. He left Game 5 having allowed one hit, no walks and no runs over 42 pitches.

The Braves were leading 8-3 before Josh Tomlin entered to pitch the bottom of the ninth inning. Bellinger then led off the second with a homer. Freeman opened the night's scoring with a fourth-inning two-run homer off Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin before adding an RBI single in the Braves' four-run fifth inning.

Los Angeles tied a franchise record for a postseason game with its four homers through two innings.
