Ender Inciarte has had a tough start to the season, but I'm pretty sure that Atlanta Braves fans completely forgive him after this clutch RBI. In the top of the 10th inning, Tayron Guerrero was fooled by Inciarte showing that he was going to bunt, and allowed him to smack an RBI double down the left-field line to give the Braves a 2-1 lead.

This isn't the most impressive part about this play, however. Max Fried was used as a pinch runner for Josh Donaldson, and was absolutely hauling from first all the way home. His sprint speed was measured at 28.9 ft/second with the league average being 27 ft/second. Fried essentially made it look like he was the Freeze on this play.
This RBI put the Braves up for good as they won in the 10th inning 3-1. Honestly, I'm not sure who is the bigger hero tonight in Atlanta: Inciarte or Fried. Either way, they're both going to be riding a serious adrenaline high as they head to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers on Monday night.
