Atlanta swept the Marlins, clinching both a playoff berth and home field advantage for the Wild Card game in the process.
Even though Freddie Freeman had only three hits during the series, we have to start with him. Freeman's home run in the bottom of the ninth on Tuesday gave the Braves a walk-off win and clinched a playoff berth for Atlanta. It was an incredible moment.
Atlanta's bullpen was good yet again, putting together this combined line: 8 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 9 K's. That'll work.
Martin Prado was the only Brave to record a hit during all three games of the series, going 4-12 with a double, triple, and home run. His double on Thursday gave him 40 on the season.
Speaking of Medlen, the Braves won for the 22nd consecutive time when he started the game on the mound. It's a cool streak, and he struck out eight while walking none in his seven innings.
Jason Heyward stole his 20th base of the season on Tuesday, and that clinched a 20-20 season for the 23-year old right fielder.
Paul Maholm also pitched well during the series, striking out six and walking none in 6.2 innings of work.
