Braves' Austin Riley: Hits go-ahead homer

Riley went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Monday's NLCS Game 1 win against the Dodgers.Riley's homer, a solo shot off Blake Treinen in the top of the ninth inning, broke a 1-1 deadlock and proved to be all the Braves would need in a game they'd eventually win 5-1. The game-winning blast makes up for the fact that the 23-year-old is hitting a modest .238 with a 41.7 percent strikeout rate through six playoff games this season.

Braves' Austin Riley: Not fully healthy but will play

Riley (quadriceps) isn't 100 percent but will be in the in lineup Wednesday against the Reds for Game 1 of the Wild Card Series, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.Quadriceps tightness has kept Riley off the field since Friday, the only time he's played in the past week. Given that we're now in the playoffs, however, teams will be more willing to risk players who are less than 100 percent, so it's no surprise that Riley is expected to play.
