Atlanta Braves News: Braves Advance to NLCS, Jorge Soler Misses Game 4, Plus More

Freddie “MVFREE” Freeman!

Who else but one of the best to ever put on the Braves uniform would be the guy to produce the game winning run to help the Braves advance!

Despite a back and forth game that saw a bit more life out of the Brewers offense than in previous games, the Braves lineup was able to bounce back each time they fell behind. Furthermore, the Braves bullpen did an incredible job over the final four innings keeping the Brewers off the scoreboard. As the Brewers were returning the favor against the Braves, Milwaukee brought in elite closer Josh Hader. The end result was a bit of history for the Braves.

By winning last night, the Braves also earned three full days of rest before they begin the NLCS on Saturday. However, there will be a few developments to keep an eye on over the next few days. For one, the Dodgers forced a Game 5 against the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday. Perhaps more importantly, the status of Jorge Soler also should be updated in the near future as well.

Braves News

  • Charlie Morton made a bit of history himself with his Game 4 start for the Braves.

With three full days before the start of the NLCS, it will be interesting to see how the Braves align their starters for whoever they play.

MLB News

  • The other series that ended with a team advancing was the White Sox and Astros. The Astros offense once again arrived as they eliminated the White Sox 10-1.
  • In the other Game 4 of the day, the Dodgers forced a Game 5 against the Giants to be played on Thursday in San Francisco. The Dodgers won 7-2 yesterday to keep their series and season alive. If the Giants win, the Braves will face them in San Francisco while if the Dodgers win, they will travel Atlanta. The NLCS will begin Saturday either way.
  • Despite a season that likely was a clear disappointment, early indications are that the Yankees are leaning toward keeping Aaron Boone at manager for next season.
