A historic and improbable double play sparked by Michael Harris, II, capped the Braves’ dramatic series-tying comeback in Game 2 of the National League Division Series on Monday night against the Phillies. Having rallied from a four-run deficit, the Braves were clinging to a 5-4 lead in the ninth inning with Bryce Harper on first base and Nick Castellanos (CAST-de-YAN-us) up to bat with one out. Castellanos hit a fly ball to deep right-center field that would have been a home run in five major league ballparks. It ended with Austin Riley scooping the ball backhanded and throwing it to first in one motion. That ended the game, completing the first 8-5-3 double play in MLB postseason history and the first double play involving an outfielder to end a postseason game.
Raiders (2-3) 17 – Packers (2-3) 13
The Raiders were able to cause turnovers and get enough from their offense to break a three-game losing streak.
