He had a great season in 2018 with the Braves, a decent season this year, and pitched one helluva game in Game 1 of the NLCS last night featuring the Nationals vs. the Cards. The Nats won the game 2 - 0.

Sanchez had a no-hitter going last night until deep in the eight inning, when he finally allowed a hit with two outs.From 2016 to 2017, Sanchez struggled through a 6.09 ERA in 258⅔ innings. He was demoted to the bullpen, pitched in long relief and accepted an assignment to the minor leagues. In the spring of 2018, the Minnesota Twins released him from his contract in spring training, and Sanchez signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves. There, he paired with Suzuki, who helped him emphasize his cutter and reconfigure the way he sequenced. He emerged again as a dominant figure.
Sánchez finished the night with 7 2/3 shutout innings of one-hit ball with five strikeouts, one walk and the deepest unsuccessful individual no-hit bid in a postseason game since Oct. 5, 1967, when Boston's Jim Lonborg allowed a hit with two outs in the eighth, also against St. Louis, in Game 2 of the World Series, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
