Player Notes

  • Eddie Rosario named MVP of NL Championship Series
    Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario was named the MVP of the National League Championship Series.

    Advice: While Tyler Matzek was outstanding as well, this doesn't come as any sort of surprise as Rosario was other-worldly during the series. He finished the series 14-for-25 (.560), tying the record for most hits ever by a player in a single postseason series. He also had three home runs, nine RBI and a stolen base -- including the critical go-ahead three-run blast in the decisive Game 6 on Saturday. He's going to be an incredibly hot commodity on the free agent market this winter after this heroic October performance. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Austin Riley smacks RBI double in Game 6 victory
    Austin Riley smacked an RBI double in the first inning on Saturday, helping to lead the Braves to victory over the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS.

    Advice: Riley opened the scoring in the contest, plating Ozzie Albies with a two-out line drive double off of Walker Buehler in the first inning. He also singled in the second inning, finishing the night 2-for-5. The 24-year-old is now slashing .250/.302/.450 with a pair of homers and five RBI through 10 postseason games this year.

  • Will Smith slams door on Dodgers season Saturday
    Will Smith slammed the door on the Dodgers season on Saturday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a two-run lead in Game 6 of the NLCS -- sending the Braves to the World Series.

    Advice: The left-hander started the inning by blowing Chris Taylor away with a high fastball. He then got Cody Bellinger swinging on a 3-2 fastball before getting A.J. Pollock to ground out to shortstop to end it. Smith has been terrific this postseason, firing seven scoreless innings with a 0.71 ERA and 7/2 K/BB ratio. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Tyler Matzek plays the role of savior for Braves
    Tyler Matzek bailed the Braves out in a big way during Game 6 of the NLCS on Saturday night, escaping a major jam unscathed and striking out four over two perfect innings of work.

    Advice: The Braves entered the seventh inning with a 4-1 lead and sent Luke Jackson to the hill. Three batters later, the Dodgers had pushed a run across and had the tying runs in scoring position with nobody out. Enter Matzek. He blew away Albert Pujols, Steven Souza Jr. and Mookie Betts on strikes to end the threat. He then returned for the eighth, struck out Corey Seager and got Trea Turner and Will Smith on ground balls to third. He needed just 17 pitches (15 strikes) to get those six outs. He boasts a tremendous 1.74 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 17/4 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 innings during the postseason. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Ian Anderson goes four strong innings in Game 6
    Ian Anderson pitched well in a no-decision against the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS on Saturday night, allowing one run on three hits over his four innings of work.

    Advice: The right-hander punched out four and walked one on the night -- throwing 39 of his 66 pitches for strikes. The damage done against him came in the fourth inning where Cody Bellinger poked a two-out RBI single into left field. Anderson was lifted for a pinch hitter -- Ehire Adrianza -- who doubled and then came around to score on Eddie Rosario's three-run blast. On the postseason, Anderson sports a stellar 2.25 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 12/4 K/BB ratio across 12 innings of work. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:46 pm
