RJ Bell, an oddsmaker who also provides betting lines to the Associated Press, claims that a mystery gambler made an $8 million bet on last night’s Game 6 and won. Bell says he picked the first five games of the Series before that to get to is current total. Which, after last night, stands at $14 million.

And he’s letting it ride tonight.

Here’s Bell’s tweet thread with the info. I imagine it could be someone pulling his leg, but we’re going to file this under “I’ll believe it until I hear otherwise because it’s just too good.”

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
