Here’s how close Astros came to catching Jorge Soler’s massive home run

Astros: Yordan Alvarez mistimed his jump.
Had Alvarez timed his jump precisely right, theres a chance he couldve made the play. Heck, Baker is sure to catch some flack after the game, especially if the Astros win. He mightve made a double-switch before the start of the inning.
Rather, Baker opted for Alvarez for an extra inning simply in case they required his bat. Perhaps itll settle in the grand scheme of things, but for now the Braves and Soler have the ultimate edge.

Yordan Alvarez in left field came oh so near to making the catch, but the ball was lined at such a speed the Astros had really little opportunity at a play.

Jorge Soler and Dansby Swanson went back-to-back to give the Atlanta Braves a Game 4 lead over the Houston Astros.
The seventh-inning blasts might show absolutely huge in the grand plan of things, as a win by the Braves would give them a 3 games to one lead in the Fall Classic. If youre Houston, excellent luck conquering that sort of drawback.
