Well, today has been very hectic. Clayton Kershaw was scratched with back spasms, Adam Duvall’s injury did, in fact, end his season with the Braves, and we have had all of the usual postseason game day shenanigans on top of that. However, we have now reached that point in the day where we actually get to see some baseball as Ian Anderson takes on the LA Dodgers looking to extend the Braves’ lead in the series.

Preview

Lineups Post

There is a lot to take in with Cristian Pache getting his first postseason of his young career while many of us are wondering why Ender Inciarte continued to get playing time in the regular season, the loss of Adam Duvall, and Clayton Kershaw definitely not pitching in Game Two and possibly pitching later in the series or maybe not. In any case, this is shaping up to be a pretty critical game for the Braves. Winning Game One turned this series into essentially a coin flip according to the oddsmakers and with a less than optimal situation for the Dodgers, a win tonight means the Braves are strong favorites to win the series.

So join us in the comments as we follow along with Game Two of the NLCS against the Dodgers. Be kind, behave, but have fun. Pretty strong chance that there is going to be an overflow thread, so keep an eye out for that as well.
