MLB Playoffs Picks - 10/9 - STL Cardinals @ Atlanta Braves & Washington Nationals @ LA Dodgers”

Foltynewicz was charged with seven runs, six of which were earned.

The 35-year-old Zimmerman showed what he still can do at the plate by taking a 97 miles per hour pitch, the second thrown by reliever Pedro Báez, and turning it into a high-arching parabola that descended onto the green batter's eye in straightaway center field for a three-run shot that made it 5-1.

The inning got so out of hand for Atlanta, even a two-out strikeout of Marcell Ozuna couldn't end it. Ozuna ended up reaching on a wild pitch and an errant throw by catcher Brian McCann.

Indeed, Swanson was just 7 years old when Atlanta began a streak of nine straight postseason-round losses with a five-game setback to Arizona in the 2001 NL Championship Series.

First, the Atlanta Braves host the St. Louis Cardinals at 5:02 p.m. EDT.

The nightcap will showcase the team favored to get the NL favorite to reach the World Series, Los Angeles Dodgers, and the NL Wild Card winners, Washington Nationals, to see who advances to play for the pennant. There was no need to worry about any more offense with budding ace Jack Flaherty on the mound, coming off one of the great second halves by a starting pitcher in baseball history.

The Cardinals batted around and got more than halfway through their order a second time.

This one, though, will long be remembered for what happened before Flaherty even took the mound. The Braves are one series loss from equaling an ignominious record set by the Chicago Cubs, who dropped 10 postseason rounds in a row between 1908 and 2003. The right-hander didn't walk anyone in his first start of the series, a 3-0 victory by the Braves. Foltynewicz retired only one of the eight batters he faced, and that out was gifted to him by St. Louis on a Kolten Wong sacrifice bunt. Instead, everyone was safe when the ball deflected off his glove and rolled slowly toward second base to leave the bases loaded. Morton didn't give up another run, and he yielded three hits and two walks while striking out nine. After Paul DeJong was handed an intentional walk to re-load the bases, Atlanta manager Brian Snitker emerged from the dugout to call in 17-game victor Max Fried from the bullpen.

Adam Eaton walked against Kelly leading off the 10th, Rendon doubled on a drive that lodged in the left field wall and Soto was intentionally walked.

Goldschmidt lined out to right, drawing a sarcastic cheer from the fans as Wong tagged and hustled over to third. Three of four games have been decided in the final inning. It was the first time the Braves franchise has allowed that many opening-inning runs in any game since they were in Boston on 2 July 1925 against the Brooklyn Robins. The 10 runs were also the most scored in a single inning in a division series game.

The Braves are back in the A-T-L for a decisive postseason game. The Braves said in a statement the change is "out of respect for the concerns" expressed by Helsley, a member of the Cherokee Nation who said he finds the chant insulting.

As for the totals, the Under is the more popular play in each game. The Nats tied the game up in the bottom of the 3, thanks to an Anthony Rendon sacrifice fly, but really opened up the game in the 5 inning when Ryan Zimmerman crushed a 3-run HR to centerfield to open a 5-1 lead for the Nats. "We never gave up".

Last season, the Braves were closed out at home by the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLDS.
