Foul Territory on October 12, 2021
In Major League Baseball, Freddie Freeman's late home run off Josh Hader, who doesn't give up very many home runs, gave the Atlanta Braves the win in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series (NLDS) over the Milwaukee Brewers. The win clinched the series and the Braves will face the winner of Game 5 between the Dodgers and Giants. In the American League, the Houston Astros made quick work of the Chicago White Sox, clobbering them by a count of 10-1 on the south side of Chicago. The Nets have taken a stand with Kyrie Irving, counting him out of their plans until he is fully eligible to play and practice. The truth came out about Jon Gruden, and it wasn't pretty. JR Smith had to play some defense against an unexpected adversary on the golf course, and we had hockey games that counted in the standings.
