Dodgers’ offense arrives late but Braves take 2-0 NLCS lead

ARLINGTON, Texas — It was too little. It might not be too late. Down 7-0 after six innings on Tuesday night at Globe Life Field, the Dodgers looked like they would become the Atlanta Braves’ fifth shutout victim in seven postseason games.

Nonet...
