The Braves stand one win away from their first championship since 1995.

Atlanta dropped the Astros 3-2 Saturday night to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the World Series, a victory delivered as much by back-to-back homers as it was a surprising pitching performance.

Grant McAuley and Cory McCartney discuss Dansby Swanson and Jorge Soler penciling their names next to Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in World Series lore with back-to-back home runs and Kyle Wright’s huge 4 2/3 innings. Plus, setting the stage as the Braves try to end the series in Sunday’s Game 5.
