The Daily Chop: Braves are one win away from the World Series!

New, 85 comments

The Braves are just 27 outs from reaching the World Series.

MLB: NLCS-Atlanta Braves at Los Angeles Dodgers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Can you believe this Braves team? An excruciating loss in Game 3 could have easily crushed their momentum, much like it crushed the spirits of so many fans on Twitter. Instead, the club rebounded to post a 9-2 win against the Dodgers and reclaim control of the series. With every challenge they have faced, the Braves have overcome long odds to emerge victorious. This has been a theme throughout the second-half of the season and has carried well into the postseason. The players and coaches deserve immense respect, but the faith shown by Alex Anthopoulos in making multiple additions at the trade deadline has been instrumental. Eddie Rosario has become Barry Bonds this series, Joc Pederson has been outstanding throughout the postseason, and Adam Duvall has been much improved in the NLCS. Those three, along with Jorge Soler, are a huge reason why the Braves have advanced so deep. Thank you, Alex.

Eddie Rosario powers Braves to 9-2 win over Dodgers in Game 4 of NLCS

The Braves utilized six pitchers in route to a Game 4 victory, shutting down the Dodgers offense. The real hero, however, was Eddie Rosario. The veteran outfielder blasted two homers, a triple, and a single while driving in four runs. Atlanta also got homers from Adam Duvall and Freddie Freeman while securing the win and pulling within one game of the World Series.

Huascar Ynoa scratched from Game 4 and removed from NLCS roster

The Braves managed a win despite their starting pitcher being scratched from the lineup. Ynoa was replaced on the roster by Dylan Lee.

Blasts by Rosario, Duvall put them in rare air

Back-to-back homers in the second inning put the Braves ahead, and put Eddie Rosario and Adam Duvall into rare company. The most recent Atlanta hitters to go back-to-back in a postseason game were Javy Lopez and Vinny Castilla in 2002.

J. Turner (hamstring) likely out for playoffs

This news stinks. Turner is a huge loss for the Dodgers and seeing him exit in obvious pain was difficult to watch.
