The Atlanta Braves have taken a two-games-to-one lead in their NL Division Series by scoring three times with two out in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Cardinals, 3-1 in St. Louis. Carlos Martinez was one out from recording the save until Dansby Swanson tied it with an RBI double and scored on Adam Duvall’s two-run single. The Redbirds wasted a terrific outing by Adam Wainwright, who held the Braves to four hits over 7 2/3 shutout innings.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have grabbed a 2-1 lead in their NL Division Series by erupting for seven runs in the sixth inning of a 10-4 rout of the Nationals in Washington. Russell Martin and Kike Hernandez provided two-run doubles in the sixth before Justin Turner’s three-run blast capped the rally. Martin also belted a two-run homer, Max Muncy hit a solo shot and Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed four hits over five innings to get the win.
