"We have no way of knowing how last night’s NLCS Game Three might have turned out had the Nationals not broken open the game in the third inning, but we do know the ball was in his glove. Marcell Ozuna’s, that is. Ozuna had made a long run to snare an Anthony Rendon pop-up with two outs, a run in, and a man on first. The ball was in his glove, and the Cards were going to walk off the field down 1-0 after three innings."
