Eddie Rosario continued his heroic postseason for the Atlanta Braves with a clutch 3-run bomb in NLCS Game 6 and baseball fans were loving it.
The Atlanta Braves were trying to rewrite history in Game 6 of the NLCS against the Dodgers. After losing Game 5 in Los Angeles, the murmurs of blowing a 3-1 lead to the same team for the second straight year started.
Eddie Rosario wasn’t about to let them continue amid his white-hot playoff run.
Up to the plate in the bottom of the fourth inning with two men on, Rosario looked cool and calm at the dish when he got his pitch. He laced a laser to right field that cleared the fence and gave the Braves a huge 4-1 lead over the Dodgers and a spot in the driver’s seat to make it to the World Series.
Braves playoff hero Eddie Rosario had baseball fans in a love affair on Twitter
Braves and baseball fans alike were buzzing on Twitter for how good Rosario has been for Atlanta, punctuated by the huge home run.
Rosario’s big home run wasn’t just potentially the hit to punch the Braves first World Series ticket since 1999, it was a huge moment in what has been a huge postseason showing.
The once-unheralded pickup for the Braves tied the record for hits in a single postseason series with the big fly, which is a heck of a way to match that mark.
And now, fans could be getting a matchup between Rosario and Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez, who is just as hot, in the World Series. Talk about a great time to be all-in on baseball.
