NLDS Game 2: Jason Heyward Gives Braves Huge Lift After Mid-Season Tragedy
Many Atlanta Braves fans remember watching Jason Heyward writhing in pain after he had his jaw broken by a pitch from New York Mets pitcher John Niese that went haywire. MLB fans wondered if Heyward would ever return to the game of baseball as the way he dropped to the ground was rather discouraging.
Even still, the Braves’ outfielder would battle back and return to the diamond just a month after breaking his jaw.
Thankfully, the speedy left hander has been able to contribute for the Braves this postseason and he came through with the game-winning hit on Friday. In a shocking turn of events, Los Angeles Dodgers head coach Don Mattingly decided to intentionally walked Reed Johnson so that Paco Rodriguez would have a lefty-on-lefty matchup with Heyward. Obviously, this move is one that Mattingly wish he could have back as Heyward promptly ripped a two-run single that gave the Braves all the runs they would need to even the NLDS up at one game apiece.
Stay tuned to see if Heyward can manage to please the Atlanta fans once again or if Yasiel Puig is going to get the last laugh.
