An incredible catch of the Puerto Rican Eddie rosario held on Saturday in the fourth game of the World Series seems to be the ultimate proof that this is the fall of the Atlanta Braves.
Atlanta, which came from the bottom to win its division and then eliminated the champion and favorite Los Angeles Dodgers, defeated the Houston Astros 3-2 to take a three-game-to-one lead in the Fall Classic and this Halloween Sunday he could celebrate in front of his fans.
Up the Braves 3-2 in the top of the eighth inning, José Altuve hit a deep hit down the left that looked double or even triple, but Rosario, the player who ironically a night before had a defensive failure that ruined a possible no-hit, no-run game, he was left with the ball literally without see it.
Rosario located the ball while accelerating toward the fence, but then turned to locate where the wall was and could no longer turn to his left again to see the ball once more.
What he did was look out of the corner of his eye and open his glove in an instinctive action. “I just threw my glove,” Rosario said in English. implying that he did not see the ball.
To the amazement of everyone in the stadium, those who saw it on television and also Altuve himself, Rosario caught the ball.
Houston led the game 2-0, but the Braves came close in the sixth and then flipped in the seventh with back-to-back home runs by Dansby Swanson and Jorge Soler of Cuba.
The Braves will win their first major league championship since 1995 this Sunday if they take Game 5 on Sunday. If the Astros survive, then the series will move back to Texas.
