Atlanta Braves (4-2) (4-2) Led By Ed Rosario Win Their First Pennant Since 1999

October 24, 2021

 

The Atlanta Braves with a (4-2) game 6 and 4 games to 2, NLCS win, won their first Pennant in 22 years, having last done so, also in a home game 6 win back (Wil Shorts said “back” as I typed) in 1999.

Series MVP, Ed Rosario, the star of the three even numbered series tilts, had the big hit, a 3RHR in the bottom of the fourth, that gave Atlanta the lead to stay.

Atlanta will face the Houston Astros, who have won three consecutive odd year, American League Pennants, clinching all 3 at home.

Tyler Matzek, appearing after another poor performance by third game losing pitcher,” Luke Jackson, fanned the “over the hill,” Albert Pujols and two others with L.A. runners at second and third none out, T7 and the score (4-2).

Let’s cite Ehure Adrianza, whose pinch, broken bat double to the right field corner, set up Rosario.

 

Our first picture in a while is that of Eddie Rosario, wearing #13 in 2013.

He led the A.L. in triples in 2015 as a Minnesota Twins’ player and homered on the first pitch he faced in the big leagues, that of Scott Kazmir.

Yet he has come out of nowhere, putting on one of the great post-season series performances.
