MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s the day! The first game of the National League Division Series has finally arrived, and the Atlanta Braves are ready and excited for the postseason. What has got them fired up? For reigning MVP Freddie Freeman, it’s bonding with his twin sons. After spending some much needed quality time with them one morning, it helped to ease some of the stress he’s been feeling from his mind. Now, he’s ready to enter the postseason and keep on hitting.

This first pitching matchup will be one to watch, Charlie Morton starting for the Braves, facing off against Milwaukee Brewers’ Corbin Burnes, who finished the regular season with an MLB lowest 2.43 ERA. However, Morton can certainly hold his own, going into the NLDS with a 3.38 ERA in 13 career postseason games. Ever since the All-Star Break, Morton has really stepped up and has shown that he can be reliable in close situations. Plus, he will be backed up by a solid lineup.

The game will commence at 4:37pm at American Family Field.
