Canadian Freddie Freeman was one of three Atlanta Braves to hit a home run in game four of the National League Championship Series on Wednesday as the Braves defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-2 at Dodger Stadium in southern California. Freeman hit a third inning solo shot off of Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias to put the Braves up 3-0 at the time.
Freeman who is Canadian because his parents were born in Canada, hit a 407-foot shot to right center field. Meanwhile, Eddie Rosario was marvelous for the Braves at the plate as he had two home runs, one single and one triple. Rosario came up to bat looking for a double in his final at bat to hit for the cycle, but collected his second home run of the game for Atlanta instead. The other Braves player to hit a home run in game four was center fielder Adam Duvall. Both Duvall and Rosario joined the Braves during the season. Rosario was traded from the Cleveland Indians to the Braves on July 30 for Pablo Sandoval. Duvall was traded from the Miami Marlins to the Braves on July 30 for catcher Alex Jackson.
Game five of the National League Championship Series is Thursday in Los Angeles with the Braves leading three games to one. In the American League Championship Series, the Houston Astros lead the Boston Red Sox three games to two.
