Braves take 3-2 lead over Brewers in NLCS with 5-run win in Atlanta

Atlanta Braves players are on the cusp of the franchise’s first World Series championship since 2005. They’ll have to survive Game 5 of the National League Championship Series on Tuesday to do it.

After the final two Braves hits in a 6-3 win, here are some different angles of the way the game played out.

The Braves walked off of one incredible play after another at the end of the game — and went into the ninth with a four-run lead. Again, here’s some good news for Atlanta: Milwaukee Brewers’ Game 5 of the National League Division Series is also scheduled for Tuesday.

Kenley Jansen knows how to end a game — and ends some himself. Here are some highlights from Game 4.

With the Braves on the brink of World Series glory, we’re down to eight remaining best bets for this year’s Most Impressive Player. You can bet the Mets have been taking note.
