Freddie Freeman's solo home run off star closer Josh Hader in the eighth was the gut punch that sent the Milwaukee Brewers and their promising season down for the count.
His blast gave the Atlanta Braves a 5-4 victory over the Brewers Tuesday and a 3-1 victory in the best-of-five National League Division Series.
Milwaukee's demise was a hot topic on Twitter afterward. Here's a sampling:
Only fitting that Yelich would strike out to end the Brewers season...— Dan Needles (@dneedles12) October 13, 2021
Called strike three. The Braves run on to the field.
A 95 win regular season ends with a single playoff victory. Lots of tough moments in this series.
Atlanta faces the winner of the Dodgers/Giants series. The Brewers run ends here.— Kevin Holden (@321cuekevin) October 13, 2021
The disappointment starts with our 190 mil man. On to next year. Future is bright with our pitching arms locked in. #brewers— Brian Niznansky (@BrianNizTMJ4) October 13, 2021
Only one LH hitter in baseball has hit 2 home runs off Josh Hader.

The Mets planned to ask permission to interview Brewers baseball president David Stearns once they were out, so that may come any day. Although, it would be a surprise if Milwaukee OK’ed it. Stearns has only 1 year to go on deal but the Cree surely would like to extend him.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) October 13, 2021

Looking. Christian Yelich strikes out LOOKING to end the game and the #Brewers season.— Greg Matzek (@gmatzek) October 13, 2021
Any way you look at it, this is a terribly disappointing way to end the season. Yelich needs to figure out what the hell has happened to his swing. I don’t need 40 home runs and a 1.000 OPS. I’d settle for 30 HR, 100 RBI, and a .280 average. His decline is baffling.— Doug Russell (@DougRussell) October 13, 2021
Yelich seems like a shell of his former self.— Ben Handelman (@BenHandelman) October 12, 2021
That sucks. The only good thing is that I hope this puts an end to that stupid #ClawsUpMKE slogan.— Mark Baden (@Mark_Baden) October 13, 2021
