2013 NLDS Game 2: Dodgers 3, Braves 2, Don Mattingly/Jason Heyward 2 – GIFS & the 7th inning from hell

DonMattinglyConfused

Did Don Mattingly really do that to the Dodgers? Yes, yes he did. The title isn’t meant to be disrespectful to the Braves or infer that they didn’t deserve to win … but it never ever should have gone the way it did.
