St. Louis Cardinals at Atlanta Braves MLB Matchup

Brian Snitker was managing in Single-A in October 2001, so he had nothing to do with the success of the 2001 Atlanta Braves in a winner-take-all Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Houston Astros.

But Snitker and the rest of the Braves will be tasked with unloading the burden of one of the longest MLB droughts in trying to reach a Championship Series when Atlanta hosts the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLDS on Wednesday afternoon.

The Braves were four outs away from a cathartic series victory Monday afternoon, but Yadier Molina looped a game-tying RBI single just beyond the glove of a leaping Freddie Freeman in the eighth inning before lofting the walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th that lifted the Cardinals to a 5-4 win.

Mike Foltynewicz (8-6, 4.54 ERA in the regular season) is scheduled to take the mound for the Braves against the Cardinals’ Jack Flaherty (11-8, 2.75 ERA). It will be a rematch of Game 2, when Foltynewicz earned the win by allowing just three hits over seven scoreless innings as the Braves evened the series with a 3-0 victory. Flaherty took the hard-luck loss after allowing all three runs in seven innings.
