This home run was not the only time that Freddie Freeman has hit a game-winning home run off of Hader. He also did so on May 18th, 2019. Since then, Hader had only allowed four home runs against left-handed hitters. With the most recent coming on Sept. 12, 2020.
While Freddie Freeman has made it clear that he wants to play his entire career with the Atlanta Braves. There was a chance that the 2020 NL MVP might have played elsewhere next season if the Braves would have lost the series. This year though, the Braves are looking to complete the quest and appear in the World Series.
Charlie Morton started on short rest and didn’t have the energy needed. He only went 3 and 1/3 innings. He had recorded five strikeouts in the first three innings but struggled mightily in the fourth.
It was a good day for the Milwaukee Brewers offense as they saw consistent production up and down their lineup, with four guys recording an RBI.
