Two NL games today. A little bit of inside dope from Baseball-Reference:

In what passes for drama at the Game 3 stage of LDS series, Anibal Sanchez, and not Max Scherzer, will start in Game 3. It’s a calculated risk by Nats manager Dave Martinez; if the Nationals can somehow steal this one at home, he has his 1-2 starters going in Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg to try closing the series out.

Not as much tension in St. Louis, where back from the dead Adam Wainwright tries to give the Cardinals a similar steal in Game 3.

Both games are back-to-back, on TBS, starting with Atlanta the Cardinals at 3:10 p.m.
