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. Mike Soroka turned in an impressive performance but Adam Wainwright matched him pitch-for-pitch. In the end though, it was that Braves that battled back while facing adversity late for a come-from-behind win.
Dansby Swanson made play after play in the field and went 3-for-4 at the plate including a ninth inning double that tied the game. After struggling down the stretch, Swanson has been big for the Braves in the series.
