Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in the Dodgers' NLCS Game 2 loss to the Braves on Tuesday. Seager's three-run opposite-field homer off lefty reliever A.J. Minter finally put the Dodgers on the board in the bottom of the seventh and he helped sparked a late rally with an RBI double down the right-field line in the bottom of the ninth, but the Dodgers ultimately fell short in the 8-7 loss at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
Atlanta Braves DFS Spin
Freddie Freeman went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, and two runs scored in the Braves' 8-7 win over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS on Tuesday. Freeman opened the night's scoring with a fourth-inning two-run homer off Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin before adding an RBI single in the Braves' four-run fifth inning. He also went deep in the Braves' NLCS Game 1 victory on Monday night and is now the fourth Braves player with a home run in back-to-back games this postseason, joining Dansby Swanson, Travis d'Arnaud, and Ozzie Albies. Freeman and Albies are the third pair of teammates in MLB history to homer in both Games 1 and 2 of a League Championship Series.
