The playoffs are here and with a twist this year The Atlanta Braves have won the NL East for the third year in a row, but will face a team that finished third in their division
As most know though, the Cincinnati Reds are one of the hottest teams in the game and likely would have won the division if it weren’t for a slow start to their first half.
The Reds have a solid roster, but more importantly, they have a 1-2-3 rotation that almost any team in the game would envy
The trio of Trevor Bauer, Luis Castillo and Sonny Gray is about as great as it gets
However, today we’re going to focus on the Atlanta Braves story against Game 1 starter Trevor Bauer.
I’ve been saying for a long time that I hope the Atlanta Braves take on Bauer in the next offseason, so hopefully this is the first of many starts that include Bauer and the Braves d ‘Atlanta
The most important thing that jumps out at me is that Tyler Flowers possessed Bauer in a small sample Flowers is 6-11 in his career against the right-hander Despite all of this, I’m really waiting for Travis d’Arnaud is starting (the line-up has just fallen and it is indeed the case) For those who wonder, d’Arnaud only had a career at bat against Bauer
Yes, everyone wants to know about Ronald Acuna, Freddie Freeman, Marcell Ozuna and Ozzie Albies
Freddie is 4-10 in his career against Bauer and that includes three doubles As for the other three, they are combined 2 for 13 and both hits came via Ozzie Albies
The most surprising part of it all for me is how few beats most Braves players have against Bauer
As mentioned, d’Arnaud with only 1 at bat Ozuna with only 2 Dansby Swanson also only with a couple
It won’t be easy, but it’s not supposed to be The Reds will also have a hard time taking on Atlanta Braves ace, Max Fried A pitch match that features two of the top 5 possible contenders at the NL Cy Young price
It goes without saying that the winner of Game 1 in a best-of-3 series has a big advantage, so hopefully this is the year the Atlanta Braves take that streak of bad luck in the playoffs.
