MVP: Eddie Rosario hit .560 in SCLN

ATLANTA – The Puerto Rican gardener Eddie rosario he was voted Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the National League Championship Series on Saturday, which the Atlanta Braves won in six games over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Rosario hit a three-run homer off right-hander Walker Buehler in the fourth inning of Game 6 at Truist Park to break a 1-1 tie and guide the Braves to their first World Series appearance since 1999.

“I was looking for him, I wanted him,” said Rosario, the sixth member of the Braves, but the first since Venezuelan catcher Eddie Perez to receive the trophy. “I have no words to describe the emotion I feel.”

“I’ve always dreamed of it and now I’m living it. I’m very grateful,” Rosario said of advancing to the World Series for the first time in her career.

Rosario hit .560 with three home runs and nine RBIs in 25 at-bats and with 14 hits tied the record for hits in a playoff series. Venezuelan Marco Scutaro, the Dominican Albert pujols, Japanese Hideki Matsui and American Kevin Youkilis also had 14 hits in a series.

“I am proud of everything I am doing, of the team, of my teammates. I am very happy,” he said.

The Atlanta outfielder is the seventh Puerto Rican player to win the MVP in the Major League Championship Series.

The receivers Javy López (Atlanta, 1996), Benito Santiago (San Francisco Giants, 2002) and Iván Rodríguez (Florida Marlins, 2003) and the infielder Javy baez (Chicago Cubs, 2016) also conquered it in the National League.

Second baseman Roberto Alomar (Toronto Blue Jays, 1992) and outfielder Bernie Williams (New York Yankees, 1996) welcomed him to the American League.

A late-July acquisition from the Cleveland Indians, Rosario hit .271 with seven home runs and had a .903 OPS in 33 games for Atlanta in the regular series. In 10 postseason games, he is hitting .474 (38-18) with five extra-base hits and 11 RBIs.

In 16 playoff games in his seven-year career, Rosario is hitting .354 (65-23).

On beating the Dodgers, who recovered from being down 1-3 last year to beat the Braves and advance and win the World Series, Rosario said he respects him as a team but always felt confident they would beat him.

“It really is a great team, a great rival, but I knew that with effort and work, we could beat them,” he said.
