Though it was just the first win of the 2023 postseason for the Braves, it came with plenty of drama and Heroics. The Braves were able to even the first round of the NLDS at one game a piece. Travis d’Arnaud and Michael Harris II both made amazing plays at the plate and in centerfield, but it was Austin Riley who hit the go ahead home run and made the play of the game to double off Bryce Harper after Harris II’s amazing catch.

The Braves are now 17-2 in NLDS Game 2’s all-time, continuing the tradition of the Braves being resilient despite Game 1 struggles. Overall, and even with the series shifting back to Philadelphia, the Braves have to feel confident they can win two out of the next three games to advance.
