Foltynewicz looked better in his second career postseason start Monday against the Dodgers. He went four innings and gave up a run on two hits and four walks while striking out five in the no-decision.
This a vast improvement from Wednesday, when he lasted only two innings and allowed four runs. Unfortunately, it was not enough to help the Braves stave off elimination, but Foltynewicz will likely enter the 2019 season as the ace of the staff.
Foltynewicz will start Game 4 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Foltynewicz took the loss in Game 1, lasting two innings and surrendering four runs on three hits and three walks while fanning five. He's slated to go up against Rich Hill in a must-win ballgame for Atlanta.
Flowers is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.
This marks the second game in a row Flowers will sit out of after going 1-for-4 in the series opener. Kurt Suzuki will draw the start behind the plate to replace him.
Gausman will not start Game 3 of the NLDS on Sunday against the Dodgers as expected, with Sean Newcomb getting the call instead.
The Braves decided to go with the lefty Newcomb despite his poor finish to the season. With Atlanta already facing elimination, the Braves could wind up giving Newcomb just one turn through the order before turning to a right-hander, who could be Gausman.
Newcomb will start Game 3 of the NLDS on Sunday against the Dodgers.
As reported earlier, the Braves will start Newcomb after previously planning to go with Kevin Gausman. Atlanta will be in an all-hands-on-deck situation down 2-0 in the series, so it's possible that the lefty Newcomb will get just one turn through the order before the Braves bring in a righty, possibly Gausman.
