The Braves were down 9-4 in the bottom of the ninth inning against the lowly Marlins. If you haven’t been following Atlanta this year, you should know that they don’t know how to quit. Well, they definitely didn’t on Sunday as they scored six runs in the bottom of the 9th capped by a two-run walk-off single from Dansby Swanson to steal a 10-9 win.
In case you weren’t aware, Jordan Hicks throws really, really hard. It doesn’t always find the strike zone, but it is still very impressive. He was hitting 104 and 105 mph on Sunday.
Austin Meadows, called up this week to the big leagues for the Pirates, connected for his first big league home run. You never forget your first.
Jack Flaherty dominated on Sunday as he racked up 13 Ks against the Phillies. Here is strikeout number 10 with slow motion and everything.

The Yankees were doing what the Yankees do on Sunday as they were launching home runs. However, instead of the usual suspects, Tyler Austin did the heavy lifting as he hit two home runs on the day. The first one he hit was....rather impressive.
JD Martinez wasn’t going to let his division rivals have all the fun with the dingers so he hit a couple of his own on Sunday to grab a share of the MLB-lead in the category. Unless you were unaware, he has been quite good for the Red Sox this year.

We do want to give some love to the Mets ball boy, who made a fantastic diving stop on a foul ball. We don’t have the Statcast data or UZR scores for this one, but we assume they are good.
