Somehow the most improbable catch of the past 2 seasons wasn’t even the best play of the game. That’s how good this TNF game was.

1st career playoff game. All tied up. 9th inning. Bases loaded. 2 strikes. Ozuna with the clutchest swing of his career.

Facing a 4-run deficit in the 9th, a situation no team has ever recovered from to win in postseason history, Ronald Acuna did what he does best: make a play. A 2-run bomb in the 9th slightly made up for his mental error earlier in the game when he didn’t run out a fly ball that he thought was a HR but fell short.

With a comfortable 4-0 lead in the 8th, the young Dodgers took it on themselves to add some insurance. That was Gavin Lux’ 1st career postseason AB, making him the 2nd youngest to hit a HR in his 1st playoff AB.

Paul Goldschmidt has played 9 career postseason games. He has homered in 5 of them. Goldy is now 1-for-1 in a Cardinals uniform so far. This HR turned the momentum in STL’s favor and in retrospect made a huge impact.

The throw in itself is impressive, but knowing the situation makes it even more amazing. Atlanta was holding on to a 1-run lead in the 8th with men on 1st & 2nd, 2 outs. Matt Carpenter dropped a blooper in that was scoring the guy from 2nd base no matter what. However, the runner from 1st would’ve given STL their 1st lead of the game if Duvall didn’t laser him at the plate.

One wouldn’t expect a punt coverage highlight to make this stacked list of top highlights, but no coach or special teams player can watch this and not be impressed.

An epic TNF game that was as back-and-fourth as a football game can get ultimately came down to one play. The last play of the game (essentially) which featured one of the best kickers in the game attempting a GW-FG from 44 yards. This play epitomizes the saying “It’s a game of inches.”

While the NFL & MLB held most of the attention on Thursday, the NBA dropped the best slam dunks from last season, which is worthy of a spot on Thursday’s best highlights as the season is right around the corner.
