Atlanta Braves vs. St. Louis Cardinals, 10/7/19 Prediction & Odds

"I think it's a misrepresentation of the Cherokee people or Native Americans in general", Helsley said before the Braves' 3-0 win in Friday's Game 2.

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez further escalated his feud with the Atlanta Braves on Sunday after he was seen blowing a kiss to a Braves base runner - but Atlanta got the last laugh after Martinez's mound implosion led the Cardinals to kiss their lead goodbye. Instead, Martinez became the first reliever to allow three earned runs in multiple games of the same division series, and the Braves seized a 2-1 lead in this one.

- Reserve outfielder Adam Duvall followed with a two-lag single. In October, starters don't constantly beginning, closers don't constantly terminate, and each pitcher is evaluated by what number of outs they've in them on a given day - no longer when they would possibly in actuality feel most pleased pitching.

St. Louis jumped in front when Ozuna doubled in the second, advanced to third on Molina's grounder and scored on Matt Carpenter's sacrifice fly. The 38-year-old right-hander turned back the clock to his days as a lockdown ace, keeping Braves batters off balance with his four-pitch repertoire.

Keuchel started Game 1 against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday, throwing 4.1 innings of one-run ball in the eventual 7-6 loss. With only two hits against Soroka, and four hits through the game, St. Louis simply needed more insurance runs. He exited to a standing ovation, and then watched as Andrew Miller retired Freddie Freeman to escape the jam. Martinez's wipeout slider is critical easier in opposition to honest correct-handed hitters. Paul Goldschmidt ended the game 1-for-4 with a double. Atlanta needs one more win to advance to the NL Championship Series for the first time since 2001.

The Atlanta Braves come into this matchup with a 2-1 record in this series, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Saint Louis Cardinals, 3-1. Dansby Swanson went 3 for 4 and was the hero of the game. He immediately got into trouble when Josh Donaldson hit a double to start the inning. He greeted Soroka with a double leading off the second inning, and eventually made his way around to score.

In the age of bullpens taking over in October, Wainwright and Mike Soroka locked up in an old-fashioned pitchers' duel. Ozuna had both of them.

"I wanted him to respect the game and respect me as a veteran player."
It was this bare-handed snag to retire Kolten Wong that stole the show though.
