The Atlanta Braves will try to get back on track Wednesday night when the NLCS continues with Game 4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Braves will go with a bullpen game in Game 4 with Huascar Ynoa getting things underway as the opener.
Ynoa made one appearance during the NLDS and allowed two hits, a walk and two runs to go along with two strikeouts in just an inning of work. This will be his first appearance in the NLCS and is easily the biggest start of his career. The Dodgers will go with left-hander Julio Urias who made a relief appearance in Game 2 and allowed three hits and two runs in an inning.
UPDATE: During his pregame media session, Brian Snitker announced that Ynoa has been scratched from his Game 4 start due to shoulder inflammation. Jesse Chavez will start instead.
With the lefty on the mound, the Braves are shuffling their lineup. Dansby Swanson returns to the leadoff spot with Eddie Rosario dropping to fifth. Joc Pederson moves down a spot to seventh while Travis d’Arnaud will hit eighth.
No surprises for the Dodgers’ lineup in Game 4. Gavin Lux gets another start in centerfield and will be hitting sixth. Game 3’s hero Cody Bellinger will be at first base and will hit seventh.
