Unlikely Hero, 2 HRs Carry Braves To Brink Of Series Title

Oct 30, 2021, 10:21 PM

ATLANTA (AP) — A guy who spent most of the season in the minors kept the Braves in it.

Then the offense finally came to life.

Just like that, Atlanta is one win away from its first World Series title in 26 years.

Dansby Swanson and pinch-hitter Jorge Soler hit back-to-back homers in the seventh inning, propelling the Braves to a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros.

Atlanta now has a commanding three games to one lead and can wrap up the title Sunday night.

A huge shoutout goes to Kyle Wright, who provided 4 2/3 gritty innings out of the bullpen.
