The Atlanta Braves vs. Brewers at Truist Park, 1 this afternoon on TBS. Click for a game three breakdown

Who are the starting pitchers?

  • Brewers: The logical choice all along, Freddy Peralta (10-5, 2.81 ERA) was confirmed as the Game 3 starter by manager Craig Counsell on Sunday.
  • Braves: Anderson (9-5, 3.58 ERA) had only six big league appearances before being used as Atlanta’s No. 2 starter during last year’s postseason. But the lanky right-hander didn’t blink as he worked 17 2/3 scoreless innings before allowing a run in his fourth start, which came against the Dodgers in Game 7 of the NL Championship Series.Anderson missed seven weeks after the All-Star break because of right shoulder inflammation. He didn’t record a strikeout in his first two starts off the injured list, but he totaled 24 over the three starts that followed. He also allowed two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts.
  • Next: Game four is Tuesday at 5:07 p.m., TBS; game five, if needed, 5:07 p.m. Thursday on TBS.
  • MLB playoffs schedule: MLB
