Heyward Single In Ninth Gives Braves Walk-Off Victory

In what has become a theme this year, the Braves won yet again in their last AB. The hero this time was Jason Heyward, who has been used to coming through in big situations. Tonight, with two outs and runners on first and second, Heyward punched a 3-0 pitch right back up the middle to drive in Rick Ankiel in the bottom of the 9th. It was the Braves 21st last at-bat win.

Jonny Venters and Billy Wagner were in their normal, dominating forms in the 8th and 9th and kept the game tied until the Braves could record their 21st last-AB win of the year. That’s incredible.
