There were lots of notable moments during Game 2 of the National League Championship Series Sunday night, and many of them involved the Braves’ Eddie Rosario. Rosario, who the Braves acquired from the Cleveland Indians in June for Pablo Sandoval, had an incredible night, going four-for-five. He was also dangerous on the bases, going from first to second on a fly ball to left and then scoring from second on a single with a beautiful slide. And he belted the game-winning single on a ground ball through the middle, scoring Dansby Swanson from second:

That’s an incredible finish to a wild game. This one started very poorly for the Braves, with Corey Seager, the second batter starter Ian Anderson faced, belting a two-run home run. And Anderson was pulled after three innings and 55 pitches, allowing three hits, three walks, and two runs. But the Braves rallied back and wound up coming away with a 5-4 win thanks to this hit from Rosario (seen above in the fifth inning), giving them a 2-0 series lead. Game 3 is Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
