WATCH: Manny Machado gets Dodgers on board first in NLCS with laser-beam HR

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Manny Machado got the Los Angeles Dodgers on the board first in the NLCS with an absolute laser beam of a home run in the second inning of Game 1.

Check out this rocket off the bat of Machado as he took Gio Gonzalez deep.

This was Machado’s third home run this postseason, and his seventh RBI.

He’s certainly lived up to the expectations the Dodgers had when they made the trade for him earlier this season.
