BASEBALL

The Atlanta Braves win 5-4 in walkoff; lead series 2-0. Media release:  Ian Anderson lasted just three innings, Freddie Freeman matched a career-long strikeout skid and the Braves issued nine walks. But thanks to Eddie Rosario and a stubbornly stingy bullpen, the city of Atlanta is still loving everything about Joctober.

Rosario experienced the thrill of a storybook performance when he capped a four-hit night with the game-ending single that gave the Braves a 5-4 comeback win over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series on Sunday night at Truist Park.

“You better not leave early when this team is down, because you’ll end up missing the best part of the game and listening to it on your radio when you’re driving home,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “These guys never quit.”
