The Atlanta Braves may have been left for dead a step too swiftly after their Game 1 bullpen implosion at SunTrust Park. Down to their very final out after Adam Wainwright spun a masterpiece, Carlos Martinez intentionally walked Brian McCann, and immediately followed that up with a hanging cutter right in Dansby Swanson's happy zone.
Tie game, though the baseball nearly escaped the yard and got all the way out of dodge for the Atlanta lead.
No matter, though; Adam Duvall, the hero in Game 2 with a lead-extending blast, came through once again here in the Lou.
Atlanta will now hand a lead to the bullpen for the ninth. Say those prayers.
