What didn't he do to yesterday to beat the Giants in San Francisco? Sliding catch in the seventh, two-run homer to tie the game in the 8th, single to right to plate the go-ahead run from second with two outs in the top of the 13th.

 "He's a human cheat code," said Luke Jackson, who did his part, pitching the last two innings to save his win.

It will be interesting to see how he adapts to playing in the outfield and whether or not he can stick once Inciarte is ready to return. The Atlanta outfield D will definitely suffer, but if he hits anywhere near the level he has down on the farm, I'd be willing to bet the Braves will learn to live with it.

Note on Austin Riley; I added the italics.

by RotoWire Staff
Riley went 3-for-4 with a walk, two home runs and three RBI for Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old is the hottest hitter in the International League at the moment, if not the entire minors, slashing .469/.544/1.204 over the last 13 games with 10 homers -- including three separate two-HR performances in the last eight contests. More importantly for his chances of making a big-league debut in 2019, Riley got the start in left field Wednesday, his first appearance in the outfield during his minor-league career. Josh Donaldson is healthy at third base for Atlanta and has an .846 OPS, but Ender Inciarte has a .640 mark, and the club could easily shift Ronald Acuna to center field to open up a corner outfield spot for Riley if Inciarte's struggles continue too much longer.

Austin Riley, 3B, Braves. The Braves’ top prospect had a four-hit game for Triple-A Gwinnett with two doubles, two long home runs and three runs scored. Riley is starting to heat up after a slow start, collecting hits in 13 of his last 25 at-bats.

From Baseball America:

Austin Riley, 3B, Braves. Riley showed off his power Tuesday, hitting a home run to right center field against the Nationals. Even with Johan Camargo and Josh Donaldson in the fold, Riley figures to get some playing time in 2019.
