When you followed our recommendation, then you are ahead about the MLB gambling this week as we chose St. Louis to overcome visiting Atlanta in Game 4 of the NLDS to force this Game 5. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina — a Hall of Famer — added to his status in this town. With his team down Molina muscled one into shallow right field from second. Subsequently he struck a sacrifice fly to left field. Wednesday is a night of baseball with this game and in the LA Dodgers in their Sport 5. Clearly the two winners will meet in the NLCS. It is the initial game since losing the 2012 Wild-Card Game of Atlanta. Its the Braves first in a string because dropping the 2004 NLDS into Houston in five. Its the very first St. Louis winner-take all match because beating the Pirates in Game 5 of the 2013 NLDS. St. Louis has its own ace on the mound and arguably the best young pitcher in baseball in Jack Flaherty (11-8, 2.75). He had a historically good second half of this year, going 7-2 with a microscopic 0.91 ERA in 15 starts since the All-Star split having the opponents batting average of .142 along with 124 strikeouts at 99.1 innings. The 23-year-old took the loss in Atlanta in Game 2 of the show, as he allowed eight hits and three runs with eight strikeouts over seven innings, however, it was a quality start. Atlanta scored a run at the bottom of the first to a Josh Donaldson RBI only — that might be his final game with the Braves should they shed with Donaldson place for free agency — and then two in the bottom of the seventh on a two-run homer by Adam Duvall. Flaherty was somewhat worse over the road this year (3.31 ERA) than at home (2.37). Will manager Mike Shildt trust nearer Carlos Martinez, When the Cardinals have a lead heading to the bottom of the ninth? He has pitched 3.1 innings in this series having an ERA of both 16.20 and was hammered from the Braves in the regular season also. Martinez did undergo three big outs in the ninth inning on Monday even though allowing a leadoff double to Ronald Acuna Jr.. All hands will be on deck to the Braves, that are probably thrilled that Tuesday has been an off day since they used half the eight relievers in Game 4. The guys who didnt toss were Mark Melancon and Max Fried. Fried had pitched the first 3 games of this collection. He had been a high school teammate of Flahertys. Atlanta needs more crime from Donaldson (2-for-15) along with Freddie Freeman (2-for-16). Theyve united to proceed 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Since Brian Snitker took over as director on May 17, 2016, the Braves have won 79 games in the postseason and regular season in their final at-bat, most in the majors. Its Mike Foltynewicz (8-6, 4.54) about the bump here. He became the first Braves pitcher to throw at least seven innings of scoreless ball since Tom Glavine of the 2001 NLDS in Game 2 and outdueled Flaherty in Game two allowing three hits with seven strikeouts. Foltynewicz had a 1.73 ERA over the last seven regular-season starts. Flaherty has been the only NL pitcher having a better ERA (0.96) during this span. Wednesday will mark the postseason beginning of Foltys profession. The Braves lost his begins Games 4 and 1 of the NLDS last season.
