Wild, wild card night ends with losses for everyone

Ender Inciarte made sure the Mets couldn’t pull ahead of either the Cardinals or Giants with this walk off catch.

While the Mets were losing to the Braves, the Cardinals were blasted by the Rockies 11 – 1, and the Giants were sent packing by the Dodgers Yasiel Puig 9 – 3.

Even the Marlins got in on the losing, being dropped by the Nationals 8 – 3.  With everyone else losing the Pirates decided to make a little game of it and won their second in a row to jump over the Marlins in a futile attempt for the play in game.

Inciarte started off slow this year but since June 5th he has had an OPS of .800. On June 5th it was .523, and is now a cumulative .736. Add in his glove, and decent splits, the Braves have themselves a full-time centerfielder. Dansby Swanson has become the full-time shortstop and has acquitted himself well with his 112 OPS+ in his first 100 major league at-bats. Even Aaron Blair is getting in on the action with a nice game in his last start when he beat Thor.  Why am I mentioning Inciarte/Swanson/Blair? Oh, just because.
