Game 3 of the NLDS versus San Francisco Giants
Albert Almora makes a great catch in extra innings
Game 7 of the World Series versus Cleveland Indians
In the top of the 10th inning, Albert Almora pinch ran after Kyle Schwarber singled to lead off the inning and
he made a very important play in the inning when he tagged up and advanced to second base on a long fly out by Kris Bryant.
The Indians walked Anthony Rizzo intentionally after this play. Almora scored the run to give the Cubs a one run lead, but Rizzo also scored the 2nd run of the inning, an important run since the Indians scored one run in the bottom of the 10th inning. Bottom line, if Almora doesn't tag up and advance to 2nd base, the result of game 7 could've been different than what it was, a World Series championship victory for the Chicago Cubs.
