Daily Hammer Podcast: Braves Punch Their Ticket To the Playoffs

For the fifth straight season, the Braves will be playing in October for another World Series title.

MLB: Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Though the Braves found their path to victory a bit more difficult on Tuesday night, they were able to win another series and their fifth straight game. More importantly, the Braves also earned a playoff birth for the fifth straight season. Charlie Morton looked better on the mound than in recent starts, Dansby Swanson and Travis d’Arnaud delivered timely home runs.

Shawn Coleman looks at some fun takeaways from last night and the Braves once again looking to thrive in October:

  • Morton’s bounce back start
  • Travis d’Arnaud’s excellent stretch of play
  • Another Braves winning streak earns them another ticket to October
  • Spencer Strider injury update
  • Bryce Elder looks to take the mound once again for Atlanta on Wednesday
