The Atlanta Braves are heading back to the NLCS for the second straight season. Atlanta picked up a wild, 5-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 4 and, as such, Brian Snitker’s team is moving on to meet an opponent from the NL West.

In the afterglow, TC’s Brad Rowland and Scott Coleman co-host Episode 313 of the Talking Chop Podcast and topics include the following:

  • The Braves got a pre-game curve ball with Jorge Soler testing positive for COVID-19
  • Atlanta handed the ball to Charlie Morton on three days rest, and the veteran capably did his job amid challenging circumstances
  • Morton did run into trouble in the 4th inning and, overall, the top of that frame was not ideal for the home team
  • The bottom half was much better, as Atlanta tied the game
  • The back and forth continued in the 5th inning, with the score remaining knotted by the end
  • Atlanta’s bullpen was lights-out in the final four innings of the game
  • Freddie Freeman put together one of the biggest swings of his career against Josh Hader
  • Will Smith held the line and, well, the Braves were on to the NLCS
  • Atlanta’s next step is getting rested and preparing for MLB’s “Final Four” beginning on Saturday
  • Much, much more
