The Atlanta Braves are set to visit Busch Stadium in Saint Louis, Missouri for game 3 of the NLDS against the Saint Louis Cardinals. The Atlanta Braves come into this matchup with a 1-1 record in the series, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning game 2 against the Saint Louis Cardinals, 3-0. Mike Foltynewicz received the starting nod for the Atlanta Braves, and he had success as he went 7 scoreless innings while striking out 7 batters. Adam Duvall had a big game from the plate for the Atlanta Braves as he contributed 1 HR and 2 RBIs.

The Atlanta Braves are set to start Mike Soroka (13-4, 2.68 ERA) who struggled in his latest start as he gave up 3 earned runs in 5 innings against the New York Mets. Mike Soroka had success in his 2 starts against the Saint Louis Cardinals during the 2019 season as he is 1-0 with a 0.69 ERA.

The Saint Louis Cardinals come into this matchup with a 1-1 record in this series, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping game 2 against the Atlanta Braves, 3-0. Jack Flaherty received the starting nod for the Saint Louis Cardinals, and he struggled as he gave up 3 earned runs in 7 innings. Marcel Ozuna and Yadier Molina were the lone Cardinals to record multi-hit games as they both went 2 for 4 from the plate.

The Saint Louis Cardinals are set to start Adam Wainwright (14-10, 4.19 ERA) who struggled in his latest start as he gave up 6 earned runs in 4.1 innings against the Chicago Cubs. Adam Wainwright struggled in his 1 start against the Atlanta Braves during the 2019 season as he gave up 5 earned runs in 4 innings.

The Atlanta Braves come into this game with the momentum as they won game 2 of the series with a collective effort in all facets of the game, and I expect them to continue their success here. The Atlanta Braves bring the pitching advantage into this matchup as Mike Soroka has been solid this season with a 13-4 record and a 2.68 ERA while also dominating the Cardinals in two starts. The Atlanta Braves have the bats to cause problems on Wainwright and the Cardinals, and I think they go 1 game up in the series.
