How did the Los Angeles Dodgers top the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series?

Simple: They dominated them in every imagineable way.

The club that looked like a bust at the start of June now seems like a smart World Series bet. They may have never looked stronger than after dispatching of the Braves in four games.

Here's how the clubs stacked up during a lopsided series:

  Dodgers Braves
Average .333 .213
On-base percentage .386 .289
Slugging percentage .565 .274
On-base plus slugging percentage .951 .563
Home runs 7 1
Runs scored 26 14
ERA 3.08 5.82
WHIP 1.14 1.70
Strikeout to walk ratio 3.0 2.9
Strikeouts per nine innings 10.8 9.26
Walks per nine innings 3.6 3.17
