Hold On: Maybe the Atlanta Braves Are the Team o’ Destiny

Yesterday the hardlyrooting staff (which has been a Made Yankee Fan in Boston for 45 years, so draw your own conclusions) presented the case for the Boston Red Sox as this postseason’s Team o’ Destiny.

But now that the Atlanta Braves have managed their second walkoff win against the heavily favored Los Angeles Dodgers, we seem to have a bakeoff.

On Saturday night, after a Dodger baserunning blunder in the top of the ninth snuffed out a possible rally, the Braves put together a bloop single, a stolen base, and a walkoff line drive into the left field corner to grab the victory.

Then last night the Dodgers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, the Braves tied it in the bottom of the fourth, the Dodgers came back with two in the top of the seventh, and the Braves matched them in the bottom of the eighth.

(All the action is here via MLB.)

And in the bottom of the ninth there was this.

 

Best case scenario: The Sox and the Braves (former Boston abutters, as Garry Brown noted at MassLive) meet in the World’s Serious.

Save us a seat, yeah?
