3. Michael Harris II's Defense
Michael Harris II had one of the most clutch and memorable defensive plays we will ever see in Game Two. He made another spectacular catch last night in Game Four that looked like it would drop for sure. The crowd thought it would drop, I thought it would drop, and Nick Castellanos thought it would drop. Harris completed the spectacular catch, spun around, slowed to a trot, and casually tossed the ball to second for the force out. Castellanos was nowhere to be found. Great play.
4. Austin Riley Raked in NLDS
The Braves hit just .186 with a .519 OPS in the NLDS. The individual numbers were bad. But, here's the good news. We had one guy who hit well and that was Austin Riley. Not only did he provide the go-ahead homer in the legendary Game Two victory. He also hit two of the Braves' three homers in the series. Riley hit .353 with a .706 SLG in the series. He was the only bat worth highlighting...Read about how bad the bats were here.
That's about all I got. Let's face it, the series mostly stunk. At least the Braves are good and give us something to root for six months each year. At least they have the core locked up for years to come. Let's lick our wounds and prepare for pitchers and catchers to report in a few months.
