Joc Pederson kept enhancing his “Joctober” nickname with a three-run, pinch-hit homer and Atlanta shut down Milwaukee once again, beating the Brewers 3-0 on Monday to take a 2-1 edge in the NL Division Series.
Atlanta won with a walk-off hit for the second night in a row, collecting a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday night and a 2-0 NL Championship Series lead.
Boston became the first team to slug two grand slams in a postseason game, with Martinez and Devers connecting in the first two innings of a 9-5 win over the Astros on Saturday in Houston that tied their AL Championship Series at one game apiece.
Atlanta will host the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 on Saturday at 8:08 p.m. ET, earning home-field advantage in the rematch of last year's seven-game NLCS despite their opponent having a better regular-season record.
