CF - ATL
Cristian Pache went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Braves were blown out by the Dodgers 15-3 in Game 3 of the NLCS on Wednesday.
Pache smashed a Julio Urias offering in the third inning to put the Braves on the board. Unfortunately they were down 15 runs at that point so it had no material impact on the game. It certainly was a big hit for the rookie, though, as it was his first major league home run. Pache has been filling in for Adam Duvall and is batting .200/.333/.600 with a double, a home run, and two RBI through 10 postseason at-bats.
