"The Braves won this series from the mound, throwing two shutouts and allowing just six runs in four games. They struck out 48 men -- a 35% rate! -- and walked just nine. They held the Brewers to 2-for-23 with runners in scoring position and just two homers. Without Freeman, who raked in the series, they might well have had to go back to Milwaukee and face Corbin Burnes for the right to advance."
