Braves knock out Brewers playoff on Freddie Freeman home run

With 88 regular season wins, the Atlanta Braves have the worst record of any team in the MLB playoffs this year. But in October, none of that matters.

Reigning National League MVP Freddie Freeman broke a 4-4 tie with a solo home run against Milwaukee Brewers closest Josh Hader late in the eighth inning Tuesday night to take Atlanta to a 5-4 win.

The Braves eliminated the Brewers in four games and qualified for the National League Championship series for the second straight season.

“They were a whole different team in the second half,” Freeman said, attributing several key additions to the front office at the trade deadline. “We feel pretty good about ourselves in the second half, playing really good baseball and we carried it over to the playoffs.”
