NLCS G5 Dodgers 11 – Atlanta (3-2) 2

The Dodger’s fans chanted CT4 on Chris Taylor’s last at-bat, but it ended at CT3. Taylor hit three homers and drove in six runs as the Los Angeles Dodgers broke loose at the plate to beat Atlanta 11-2 on Thursday. That cut the Braves’ lead to 3-2 in the best-of-seven NL Championship Series. Game 6 is Saturday back in Atlanta, where the Braves get two more chances to clinch their first trip to the World Series since 1999.

This week’s latest preseason poll shows that the Mount Pleasant Tiger basketball team has been selected 14 in class 5A. The Tigers enter their eighth season under head coach Joey Chism as the program has continually made a name for itself, finishing in the top ten in the state the past two seasons. The rankings were chosen by coaches across Texas and show which programs have obtained the success and notoriety to garner a selection. Mount Pleasant will open the 2021-2022 Season on Nov 19 with their home opener against John Tyler at Willie Williams Gym.
