The Braves threatened another comeback in the bottom of the 8th when Jake Barrett entered with runners on 2nd and 3rd, a run in, and one out. He induced a grounder to a pulled-in infield that nailed the tying run at the plate. Then got the final out on a grounder to second. He got through the 9th allowing a single to earn his 2nd save of the playoffs. Ender Inciarte went 3 for 4 with a double and an RBI, and Nick Ahmed delivered a 2-run double to lead the offense.
