Max Muncy hits walk-off grand slam to help Dodgers sweep Phillies
The Los Angeles Dodgers are starting to get hot, and Max Muncy made sure everybody knows it.
Muncy hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning on Wednesday to help his Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 10-6. Muncy came up with the bases loaded and one out and swung at the first pitch from Craig Kimbrel. He sent the pitch down the right field line for the walk-off win.

Teammates hit Muncy with the Gatorade bath after the win:
