Start Time: October 04 2019, 4:35 PM
The Atlanta Braves are more or less in a “must-win” spot here after dropping the opener of this best-of-five NLDS Thursday night. I think that was pretty much their season though, as tonight they’ll come up against Cardinals’ ace Jack Flaherty.
Flaherty (11-8, 2.75 ERA) is 1-0 with 2.25 ERA in two starts against the Braves on the season. He is coming off back-to-back shutout performances and the relatively early start should be an advantage for the 23-year-old who has a 1.48 ERA in 12 day starts in 2019.
As for Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz (8-6, 4.54 ERA), the right-hander has been tagged with nine runs (eight earned) on 12 hits across 10 2/3 innings of work in two starts against the Cards this season. He is 3-4 with a 7.64 ERA in seven career starts against the club and this could turn ugly early for the 27-year-old.
Free pick on St. Louis Cardinals.
