BASEBALL

The Atlanta Braves a win away from the World Series; take game five, 9-2. Media release: After Eddie Rosario constructed one of the best hitting performances in Braves franchise history, there was reason to ask whether it exceeded some of his top dreams.

“Possibly, but I’m still dreaming of bigger things,” Rosario said through an interpreter. “I kind of want more at this point. Just thinking about the next thing. Hopefully, we can get there.”

Well, the Braves found themselves a win away from the World Series after claiming a 9-2 win over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. Rosario led the way by highlighting a four-hit performance with a pair of home runs.

“Eddie has been in the moment here,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “He’s liked that postseason play for sure. He’s had really just great at-bats. I looked up and told [bench coach Walt Weiss], ‘He’s a double shy of the cycle again’ and then he hit a homer.”

Instead of tallying the double that would have made him just the second player (Boston’s Brock Holt in Game 3 of the 2018 ALDS) to hit for the cycle in a playoff game, Rosario hit a three-run homer off Tony Gonsolin in the ninth. Consequently, he joined Marcell Ozuna as the only Braves to homer twice within a four-hit performance in the postseason.

Ozuna did it in Game 4 of the 2020 NLCS against the Dodgers. Now the Braves are looking to avoid what happened after that, when they squandered a 3-1 series lead.
