Dansby Swanson, Mike Soroka on Braves’ Game 3 win

Atlanta is one win away from advancing to the NLCS. Dansby Swanson came through at the plate and in the field while Adam Duvall delivered another clutch moment as the Atlanta Braves rallied for a 3-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 3 to take a 2-1 lead in the series.

Braves complete the most improbable of comebacks, steal game three to take 2-1 series lead

Photo by Jamie Squire/ Atlanta is on the verge of clinching an NLCS berth. The Braves and Cardinals were back at it this afternoon in St. Louis with Adam Wainwright and Mike Soroka set to face off on the mound. The pace was breakneck all afternoon long, but especially in the first few innings as Soroka and Wainwright traded 1-2-3 innings to begin the game. However, Soroka was the first to fault after allowing a bloop double by Marcell Ozuna followed by a groundball which advanced Ozuna to third. The next batter was Matt Carpenter who has had a horrendous season, but he grabbed an...

Soroka looks to secure series lead in St. Louis

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports The Braves best starting pitcher is going in a pivotal game three on the road. The Braves and Cardinals will be back in action this afternoon as the scene shifts to St. Louis for two games. Pitching today for the Braves will be Mike Soroka, and his opponent will be Adam Wainwright for the Cards in a pivotal game three matchup.

Having taxed their bullpen in Game 1, the Braves needed a strong performance from Foltynewicz and he delivered allowing three hits and striking out seven over seven shutout frames.
