Through eight innings in Game 3 of the Braves-Cardinals NLDS, the Braves were facing the very real possibility of being down 2-1 in the best-of-five series, despite having allowed only one run on three hits. Their only real scoring threat came in the eighth inning when a clearly tired Adam Wainwright issued two walks to load the bases. However, reliever Andrew Miller got Freddie Freeman to harmlessly fly out to center to end the threat.
Was this loaded offense really going to go down and face elimination with such a whimper?
No, it would not, as two unlikely heroes rescued the Braves with two outs in the ninth.
