The Atlanta Braves will look to punch their ticket to the World Series when they take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game Five of the NLCS. Last night, OF Eddie Rosario crushed two home runs and drove in four to power Atlanta to a 9-2 road triumph. Freddie Freeman and Adam Duval also went deep for the Braves, who had 12 hits on the night. 

Atlanta manager Brian Snitker has yet to name a starting pitcher for this matchup. The Braves ranked eighth during the regular season with a 3.88 team ERA and will likely turn to talented left-hander Max Fried.

The Los Angeles Dodgers finished a major league best 58-23 at home during the regular season and rank second in the postseason with a 2.73 team ERA. During Wednesday’s home loss, A.J. Pollock’s two-run single in the fifth inning was the only offense Los Angeles could put together. SP Julio Urias (0-1) was tagged for rive runs in five innings and took the loss for the Dodgers.

Los Angeles skipper Dave Roberts will be forced to use an all hands on deck approach to extend the season. The Dodgers ranked first in the majors with a 3.01 team ERA and a 1.10 WHIP.
