The St. Louis Cardinals were enjoying a terrific outing from starter Dakota Hudson entering the fifth inning of their win-or-go-home NLDS tilt against the Atlanta Braves. But after some clutch work from Dansby Swanson and Adam Duvall, Ozzie Albies stepped up to the dish to turn things right on their head-- and chase Hudson right out of the game.
Not a bad time to hit your first career postseason home run.
Not bad at all.
The Redbirds had been living by the long ball in this one, racing out to a lead thanks to a pair of dingers from Marcell Ozuna and another from Paul Goldschmidt. But it's suddenly the Braves' game -- and series -- to lose on the road on the banks of the Mississippi.
