Unlikely hero, 2 HRs carry Braves to brink of Series title
ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves are one win from their first World Series title in 26 years.
Dansby Swanson and pinch-hitter Jorge Soler hit back-to-back homers in the seventh inning, propelling the Braves to a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros in Game 4.
Atlanta has a commanding three games to one lead and can wrap up the championship Sunday night at home.
A huge shoutout goes to unlikely hero Kyle Wright, who provided 4 2/3 gritty innings out of the bullpen after spending most of the season in the minors.
