The Atlanta Braves defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 (box score) on Tuesday night in Game 4 of the National League Division Series. The win means the Braves will advance to the NL Championship Series for the second season in a row, where they’ll await either the San Francisco Giants or the Los Angeles Dodgers to play a best-of-seven series for the pennant. (The Giants and Dodgers are playing their own Game 4, with the Giants leading 2-1, on Tuesday night.) The Brewers, conversely, will head home to begin their offseason.

The winning run of the game was scored in the bottom of the eighth inning, when Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman launched a home run off Brewers closer Josh Hader. Freeman’s home run, his first this postseason, traveled 428 feet and had an exit velocity of 105.9 mph, according to Statcast’s calculations.
