TBS STL Vs ATL Game 5 MLB Playoffs – Hot Take
The National League Division Series shifts to St. Louis for Game 3 Sunday, as the Cardinals look to take advantage of winning a road game in Atlanta and the Braves hope to carry momentum from tying the series Friday. Facing the prospect of falling behind two games to none, the Braves rebounded from a disheartening series-opening defeat with a 3-0 victory in Game 2, using an Adam Duvall pinch-hit homer to cool off red-hot St. Louis starter Jack Flaherty.
The Braves captured Game 2 thanks to lock-down pitching (starter Mike Foltynewicz, left-hander Max Fried and closer Mark Melancon) that shut out the Cardinals on six hits, one night after Luke Jackson and Melancon combined to surrender six runs on eight hits with two walks. Center fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. is 4-for-8 in the series with two doubles, a homer, two RBIs and a run scored, while Duvall is 2-for-2 as a pinch-hitter for Atlanta, which has trailed in only one inning.
St. Louis looks to return to its Game 1 offensive form when it pounded out 14 hits and got two apiece from Tommy Edman, Marcell Ozuna, Paul Goldschmidt, Paul DeJong and Kolten Wong. Ozuna is 4-for-8 through his first two career playoff games with a run scored, two doubles and two RBIs, and Goldschmidt has added three hits, two runs scored and a homer in the series.
