But he said he might go all in on a right-handed lineup against Newcomb because “I don’t know what to expect of his length tomorrow.” The Braves could switch to a right-hander like Gausman or Julio Teheran early.The Dodgers will start rookie right-hander Walker Buehler on Sunday. Buehler has a 1.55 ERA over his past 12 starts, holding batters to a .158 average in that time.Related Articles ATLANTA — Somewhere over Nevada or maybe Utah, the Atlanta Braves decided to go left.Before Game 2 in Los Angeles on Friday, Braves manager Brian Snitker said the team was leaning toward starting right-hander Kevin Gausman against the Dodgers in Game 3 of their National League Division Series on Sunday.On the flight back to Atlanta, however, Snitker told left-hander Sean Newcomb that he might get the start. GM Alex Anthopoulous and staff, plus Snitker and the coaching staff, discussed the starting pitching choice Saturday afternoon and landed on Newcomb, not Gausman.“We had discussed other options after the game last night, and we all got together this afternoon,” Snitker said. “You know, the situation is kind of dire right now. We need to win. And not that Gausman doesn’t give us that opportunity. We like how Newcomb matches up with them and the success that he’s had against the Dodgers this year. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco “So we’re going to let Newcomb get the thing off the ground. … I told him that we need you to get this thing off the ground. You don’t need to take a no-hitter into the ninth inning with a strike left or whatever. We just want to get this thing flying and be all hands on deck.”Newcomb fell one out short of pitching a no-hitter when he faced the Dodgers in Atlanta in July. Snitker left him in to throw 134 pitches that day and Newcomb did not pitch well in the final two months of the regular season, posting a 5.68 ERA in his final 10 appearances (nine starts). He did finish the season with a 12-9 record and 3.90 ERA and pitched two scoreless innings against the Dodgers in Game 1 of this NLDS.“They got really better against lefties,” Snitker said. “When they got (Manny) Machado and then (Justin) Turner comes back in the lineup.“I think (the decision was based) more so Newcomb’s had some success against them. The start here obviously, the two innings in relief were really good, were strong. It’s kind of like he’s thrown better recently than he had all September. … The way he’s throwing right now is kind of how we remembered in stretches all year.”Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he was “surprised” by the Braves’ decision Saturday.last_img read more
