Take a look at what is happening around large companies today:
ALL EYES ON THE LA
In the only playoff game that night, the Atlanta Braves could win their first pennant in 22 years, winning the fifth game of the NL Championship series at Dodger Stadium.
Max Freed is due to start playing the Braves in his hometown while Los Angeles was planning a bullpen game. Atlanta leads 3-1 in the playoffs to the best of seven – as it did last season.
A year ago, the Dodgers also lost 0-2 and 1-3 against Atlanta at the NLCS, then roaringly won three games in a row on neutral ground in Texas on their way to the World Series title.
Los Angeles has won six straight postseason knockout matches since 2020.
Freed, 27, was born in Santa Monica, California and attended Harvard Westlake High School in Los Angeles. So how many tickets did he request for family and friends?
“This is a decent amount. I didn’t get the exact number, but I definitely had to ask someone for extra tickets, ”Fried said.
The left-hander has allowed two runs and eight strikes in six innings without a decision in Game 1. He is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in two playoff starts this year and has struck out 14 hitters without moves in 12 innings.
During the regular season, Freed went 14-7 with a 3.04 ERA.
Jordan Alvarez and the Houston Astros return home 3-2 over Boston in the AL Series.
After the day off, the Astros could make their second World Series trip in three years, winning Friday night in Game 6.
Nathan Eovaldi, who won Game 2 but came out relieved and lost in Game 4, will make his way to the Red Sox. Houston manager Dusty Baker said he hasn’t picked a starter yet.
Boston needs a win to play their decisive seventh game on Saturday.
“We returned to Boston exactly where we wanted to be: we were 1-1,” said Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale. “Not the best place to go back to Houston. It cannot be denied, but this team has already won two playoff games in a row and we think we can do it again. ”
Alvarez had three sellout hits, including Homer, and three RBIs to secure Houston’s 9-1 win in Game 5 at Fenway Park on Wednesday.
DEPARTURE FOR OCTOBER
Atlanta will remain without pitcher Huascar Inoa for the rest of the postseason.
Inoa was scratched with shoulder inflammation during his scheduled start at the Braves against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of the NL Championship Series and was subsequently removed from the postseason.
Ynoa first experienced discomfort on Monday but was confident he could serve, manager Brian Snitker said.
“He came in early, got treatment, went out and played a little catch, and it was really tight,” Snitker said. “We’re just not going to take risks.”
MLB has approved a replacement for Inoa, and left-hander Dylan Lee has been added to the series. Ynoa is not eligible to return to the World Series if the Braves move forward.
Right-hander Jesse Chavez made an opening speech Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. Chavez played for the Dodgers in 2016.
Andy Haynes is eliminated as head coach of the Milwaukee Brewers after they scored a total of six runs in their four-game NL Division Series loss to the Atlanta Braves.
On Wednesday, the brewers announced they would not renew Haynes’ contract. Assistant hitting coach Jacob Cruz was also told he could explore other options while the Brewers seek a replacement for Haynes, who has been their top coach for the past three seasons.
Mets right-hander Carlos Carrasco is recovering from surgery to remove a bone fragment from his dribble elbow and is forecast to resume baseball this winter.
Mets Medical Director Dr. David Altchek operated on Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
Carrasco, 34, was flown to New York from Cleveland in January along with shortstop Francisco Lindor. He tore his right hamstring during spring training and only made his season debut on July 30th.
Carrasco went 1-5 with a 6.04 ERA in 12 starts.
He signed a contract that pays $ 12 million for the next season and includes a $ 14 million team option for 2023 with a $ 3 million buyout. The option will be guaranteed if he serves 170 innings next season and is healthy by the start of the 2023 season.
