Must have been the Squirrels.
So the Braves finally won one at home which is a good thing because otherwise they would be hurtin’ for certain. They lost Homefield Advantage to the Cards in Game 1 but to head to Busch Stadium facing elimination is a bit of a lift.
- Bottom 1– Single. Wild Pitch. Sacrifice. RBI Single. Braves 1 – 0.
- Bottom 7– Single. 2 RBI HR. Braves 3 – 0 Final. Series Tied.
So as you can see it was by no means a blowout.
The Cards will be sending out Adam Wainwright (R, 14 – 10, 4.19 ERA). This will be his 7th year in the Playoffs. He’s appeared in 24 games with a record of 4 – 5. Over the course of 89 Innings he’s allowed 33 Runs and 9 HR with 15 Walks and 96 Ks for an ERA of 3.03. He throws Fastballs and Curves kind of interchangeably and a Cutter almost as much.
The Braves will attempt to gain advantage behind Mike Soroka (R, 13 – 4, 2.68 ERA). This is just his second season in the Bigs and he’s a Playoff Rookie. He throws Fastballs and Sliders 3:1.
