It is no secret that Ronald Acuña Jr. being benched was the top story in the series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Atlanta Braves have always struggled against the Dodgers.

For them to get the win against the Dodgers could loom large for the Braves in October. A journeyman player, Rafael Ortega, was the hero after all of the dust settled.

Ortega was called on to play in the outfield once Acuña was taken out of the game.

He hit a grand slam in the sixth inning that sealed the deal for the Braves. It seems like this may be the beginning of a story that has a fairytale ending.
