The NLDS between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies ended game two in an instant classic. Zack Wheeler and the Phillies were seemingly on cruise control through 6 innings where they held a 4-0 lead. Then the Braves did what they do best.

Ozzie Albies singled, allowing Ronald Acuña Jr. score. Then came the big bats. Travis d'Arnaud homered scoring two, bringing the Braves to within one. Then came Austin Riley with a two-run homer of his own, giving the Braves a 5-4 lead going into the top of the 9th.

Just when everyone thought they'd have a calm 9th inning, one of the most electric plays went down. Nick Castellanos hit a line drive that looked like it was going to bounce off the center field wall, until Michael Harris II made a great catch, then doubled up Bryce Harper to end the game. An instant classic for any baseball fan. The series is now tied at a game a piece with the series going back to Philadelphia.
