Muncy went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer in Sunday's World Series Game 5 win over the Rays. Muncy's fifth-inning solo shot off Tyler Glasnow provided an insurance run that ultimately proved unnecessary, as no more runs would be scored the rest of the way. He's now homered three times in the postseason to go along with a .268/.461/.500 slash line, a huge step up from his .192/.331/.389 line during the regular season. A jump in BABIP from .203 in the regular season to .364 in the playoffs accounts for much of that difference.
Muncy went 2-for-4 with two walks, two runs scored and a grand slam in Wednesday's NLCS Game 3 win over the Braves. Muncy's grand slam off lefty Grant Dayton capped off the Dodgers' 11-run first inning. He later doubled and came around to score the team's 15th run just two innings later. It was a very encouraging performance for the slugger, who slumped to a .192/.331/.389 line during the regular season.
Muncy (wrist) is starting Saturday against the Angels. Muncy left Friday's game two innings after tweaking his wrist on a checked swing, but he'll return to the lineup just one day later. Given his quick return, he shouldn't face any limitations heading into the postseason.
Muncy left Friday's game against the Angels with an apparent wrist injury, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Muncy appeared to tweak his right wrist on a check swing in the fifth inning Friday, and he was replaced defensively to begin the seventh inning. It's unclear how Muncy's availability will be impacted as a result of the injury.
