The Atlanta Braves are one win away from advancing to the NLCS against either the Los Angeles Dodgers or San Francisco Giants. First, they must close out the Milwaukee Brewers.
In a potential close-out game on Tuesday, the Braves will go to their ace, Charlie Morton, who will be on short rest.
Per ESPN, the ace will take to the mound for the Braves to try and seal the series for Atlanta.
Charlie Morton will start Tuesday on three days’ rest for the Atlanta Braves in Game 4 of their National League Division Series against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Morton, one of baseball’s best clutch pitchers, will be looking to give the Braves a clinching victory in the best-of-five series.
Morton went six innings strong for the Braves in Game 1, yielding just two runs but earning the loss in a 2-1 defeat.
The Brewers bats have been silent in this series as the Braves have shut them out in back-to-back games. Now, they’ll face the best Atlanta has to offer in Morton.
Milwaukee will counter with lefty Eric Lauer instead of going with their ace Corbin Burnes on short rest. It will be Lauer’s first appearance of the postseason for the Brewers.
Atlanta isn’t messing around and will empty the tank with Morton on short rest as they look to punch a spot into the NLCS.
