Atlanta Braves DFS Notes
Freddie Freeman singled three times and also drew a walk Tuesday against the Dodgers in NLCS Game 3. It wound up being a devastating loss for the Braves, but they did at least have to be encouraged by Freeman's performance. After going 0-for-8 with seven strikeouts in the first two games of the series, Freeman had three opposite-field singles in this one and also added a walk in his final plate appearance. In Game 4 the reigning NL MVP will face Julio Urias, against whom he's homered twice in eight career regular season plate appearances (he did get Freeman to fly out in Game 2).
Los Angeles Dodgers DFS Notes
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed that Julio Urias will start Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday against the Braves. It will be a bullpen game for the Braves, which isn't exactly ideal after their eighth-inning collapse in Tuesday's NLCS Game 3 loss at Los Angeles. Urias was the only 20-game winner in baseball during the regular season and pitched well in the NLDS before struggling in relief in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday. This best-of-seven series has the Braves leading 2-1, but there's maybe been a sudden momentum swing for the defending World Series champs.
