The Atlanta Braves made a baserunning mistake in Game 7 of the NLCS on Sunday night that proved very costly.
The Braves ruined a promising fourth inning by running into a wild double play in their eventual 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
"We made some mistakes," Brian Snitker said. "We shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times that really hurt. Games like these, runs are so hard to come by, you pretty much got to play flawless baseball."
Dodgers relievers retired 17 of the final 18 Braves batters, all following a baserunning mishap that will haunt Atlanta this offseason.
"It was huge," Snitker said. "It's hard to score runs in the postseason. The infield's back so you see the ball up the middle. That's where normally we're a really good baserunning team. We just did the fundamental things wrong."
