SP - ATL
Kyle Wright completely fell apart on Wednesday, taking the loss, as he allowed seven runs on five hits with two walks over just 2/3 of an inning in the Braves 15-3 loss to the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLCS.
As evidenced by the box score, Wright was in trouble from the very start as he personally allowed six runs, including back-to-back long balls to Joc Pederson and Edwin Rios. He walked the final batter he faced before being replaced by Grant Dayton, who subsequently gave up a grand slam to finally close the book on Wright. When the dust finally settled the Dodgers scored an MLB-record 11 runs in the first inning. On the bright side, Wright didn't expend too much energy as he only threw 28 pitches. He should be available to pitch later in the series, if necessary.
Braves starter Kyle Wright tossed six shutout innings in Thursday's win over the Miami Marlins to complete the three-game sweep. He allowed three hits and two walks while striking out seven.
Wright had an up-and-down season but finished the year strong and was dominant once again on Thursday while closing out the series. Based on this performance, he has likely earned at least one start in the upcoming NLCS now that the Braves have advanced.

In a different season, Wright would have likely spent most of the year in Triple-A, but a pile of injuries to the Atlanta starting rotation and the lack of a minor league season led to him making eight starts at the major league level.

Sunday was the first win of Wright's career, and it will be a memorable one since it came against Max Scherzer.
