The National League provided baseball fans with some exciting action on Sunday afternoon behind two pivotal NLDS games.
It began in St. Louis with Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals taking on the Atlanta Braves and rookie pitcher Mike Soroka. Wainwright carried St. Louis to a lead in the ninth. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, its bullpen failed and Adam Duvall came through in the clutch to propel the Braves to a 3-1 win.
The Los Angeles Dodgers turned to Hyun-Jin Ryu on Sunday to try and steal one on the road. Things looked bleak for the NL’s No. 1 seed until its bats woke up and ruined Washington’s piggyback rotation. While Washington’s bats tried to climb back in it, it wasn’t enough and the team now sits on the brink of elimination.
