Dansby Swanson smacks a solo shot in Game 7 loss

Dansby Swanson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in the Braves 4-3 loss to the Dodgers in Game 7 of the NLCS on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

Swanson crushed a towering upper deck home run in the second inning off of Tony Gonsolin to put the Braves up 2-0. He would commit a brutal base-running error later in the game, though, when Atlanta had runners on second and third with no out in the fourth inning. Nick Markakis grounded out to short and Swanson was caught in a rundown between third and home plate, he was eventually tagged out and then Austin Riley was gunned down trying to reach third. The Braves were unable to extend their lead, walking away with nothing, and eventually lost the ball game. The 26-year old shortstop finishes the postseason with a .267/.333/.556 batting line to go along with three home runs and nine RBI over 45 at-bats.
