Reliever Archie Bradley Delivered a Huge Two-Run Triple to Help the D-Backs Advance Last Night

Interesting

Last night, the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies in the NL Wild Card game to advance to the NLDS.

But despite getting out to a massive 6-0 lead through just three innings of play last night, the Wild Card game was far from a snoozer.

Indeed, in the top of the fourth inning, the Rockies battled back with four runs of their own, before ultimately coming to within just a single run of the D-Backs lead heading into the bottom of the seventh.

But it was there where Diamondbacks RELIEVER, Archie Bradley, cemented his postseason legacy with a two-run triple into left-center field:

Wow.

According to the broadcast (what an exciting call, by the way), that was the first triple by a reliever in postseason history, and was one of four Diamondbacks triples in the game, also a record.

The Rockies eventually answered with three more runs over the next two innings, but so did the Diamondbacks, and the final score ended 11-8. That’s one hell of a game and one crazy two-RBI triple for the D-backs reliever.
