The Braves suffered a scare in the eighth inning of Game 2 — one that would have been detrimental to their World Series chances.
Likely NL MVP, Freddie Freeman, was struck right on the elbow with a pitch. Luckily, it was a changeup and not a fastball, but if you’ve ever been hit on your funny bone, you are well aware of the feeling of numbness that can stick around for quite a while after the fact. That’s exactly what happened to Freeman; however, he was able to stay in the game, and according to Brian Snitker, things only felt better after a night’s rest.

Freeman is back in the lineup tonight for Game 3, batting second and playing first base as usual, and they’ll need his offense over the next two games, as the Braves turn to Kyle Wright and Bryse Wilson, who both have shaky track records in the majors.
