Kike Hernandez crushes game-tying pinch-hit HR on Sunday

Kike Hernandez went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in the Dodgers 4-3 win over the Braves in Game 7 of the NLCS on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

Hernandez entered the game as a pinch-hitter for Joc Pederson in the sixth inning with the Dodgers losing 3-2. He put up a brilliant at-bat against A.J. Minter that ended with Hernandez crushing the eighth pitch over the wall in left-center. The Dodgers would take the lead in the following frame via a Cody Bellinger solo shot to advance to their third World Series in the last four seasons. The 29-year old utility man has done his job in a reserve role so far this postseason with a pair of clutch homers to go along with a .222 batting average and a .856 OPS over 18 at-bats.
