The Atlanta Braves are headed back to the NLCS for the second straight season, and they’ll meet the Dodgers or the Giants, who play game 5 of their series Thursday night.
The Braves’ Freddie Freeman hammered a two-out, first-pitch homer to center field in the bottom of the eighth off Josh Hader, the Milwaukee Brewers’ All-Star closer, lifting Atlanta to a 5-4 come-from-behind win on Tuesday, closing out the NL division series in four games.
“I’ve had a lot of cool moments in my career, but so far I think that’s going to top them right there,” Freeman said. “But hopefully that’s not the last cool one.”
