At Oracle Park on Thursday night, the Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants in the final moment — due to an umpire call against the Giants that even the most die-hard Dodger fans say wasn’t fair. The Dodgers now advance to the National League Championship Series, facing the Braves in game one in Atlanta on Saturday night.
