ATLANTA – Eddie Rosario attributed his win against the Houston Astros to a 31-ounce Louisville Slugger that eventually brought the Atlanta Braves to the World Series.
Rosario told a reporter through a translator how much he used the bat without any disappointment. Despite those skeptical about his beliefs, he hoisted the MVP award last Saturday to the loud noise of his fans in the audience.
Despite the sweet moment he enjoyed last Saturday, Rosario felt determined to win more awards as his team enters the World Series for the first time since 1999.
Rosario hit a three-run homer off Walker Buehler, eventually bringing the Atlanta Braves to a 4-2 victory against Los Angeles to win the matchup against Astros.
The Dodgers manager Dave Roberts stated how difficult it was to play against Rosario. According to Roberts, the team just “couldn’t figure him out.” Rosario still managed to beat the opponent at the pull side and throws from lefties and righties. Despite trying to spin him and going hard, the team could not find an answer for him.
According to Braves manager Brian, Rosario was “just so locked in. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a guy like that.”
His fourteen hits tied himself with Albert Pujols, Hideki Matsui, Kevil Youkilis, and Marco Scutaro.
Rosario felt he deserved the rewards under his belt. Since Rosario could not make two all-star appearances, he just kept fighting for the next award or accolade.
Rosario described how exhilarating it felt for him to come through in those big moments.
