Braves vs. Dodgers live online

Having won game 1 the Atlanta Braves will be feeling confident they can do the same again. Count on the Dodgers, however, to change that idea.

Dodgers vs Braves: Game 2 Preview

The Dodgers and the Braves have met six times during the regular season. The Dodgers won four out of those six games, albeit while outscoring Atlanta by just four runs. With that in mind we can expect another close encounter. Scherzer who was due to start in Game 1 finally sat out the clash with a "tired arm,"  following his relief appearance in Game 5 of the NLDS vs. the Giants. In 30 regular season starts, he compiled a 2.46 ERA and a 6.56 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Anderson is getting the nod over Charlie Morton because the Braves wanted Morton to have additional rest (Morton started Game 4 vs. the Brewers on short rest). Anderson appeared 24 times during the regular season, accumulating a 3.58 ERA and a 2.34 strikeout-to-walk ratio. It's going to be tough going for those at bat tonight.
