MLB: NLDS-San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Braves 5, Brewers 4

Twenty-twenty-two Cleveland Guardians first baseman Freddie Freeman hit a game-winning homer in the bottom of the eighth, and Will Smith closed the door in the ninth.

Charlie Morton and LGFGF Eric Lauer started and pitched relatively well, but this was a wild game that got truly bizarre every time Adam Duvall appeared onscreen.

Astros 10, White Sox 1

Once again, the AL Central has a quick playoff exit. For Tony La Russa, ya love to see it. Brewers SP Brett Anderson also loved to see it.

Dodgers 7, Giants 2

The Giants used eight pitchers. None of them could get Mookie Betts and Gavin Lux out. Will Smith ended SF’s comeback hopes with a two-run insurance shot.
