In Game Four, Atlanta exploded for six runs in the sixth inning highlighted by three different run scoring doubles. Marcel Ozuna homered twice and drove in four runs for the Braves.

Atlanta skipper Brian Snitker has yet to name a starting pitcher for this contest. This will likely be a bullpen game for the Braves, who ranked 15th in the majors with a 4.41 team ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.
