The MLB postseason had a full day on Friday, with four games across both leagues, but on Saturday the American League gets a rest.

The National League continues with a pair of Game 2 matchups in their divisional series round. First the Atlanta Braves play the Milwaukee Brewers and Miller Park, and then the Los Angeles Dodgers square off against the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park.

Brewers vs. Braves

Brewers lead series 1-0

In Game 1 yesterday, the Brewers won a tight contest over the Braves. Both teams hit one homer, but Milwaukee’s came with a runner on base, making the difference in a 2-1 victory. Rowdy Tellez delivered the blast for the Crew, while ace starter Corbin Burnes tossed six shutout innings.

The Game 2 rematch features another pair of excellent starting pitchers.

Giants vs. Dodgers

The NL West showdown got going last night, with the Giants shutting out the Dodgers for a 4-0 victory. San Francisco hit three homers, and starter Logan Webb spun 7⅔ scoreless innings.

Game 2 features a stud pitching matchup. Julio Urias and Kevin Gausman both posted sub-3.00 ERAs with more than a strikeout per inning, and Urias was the only 20-game winner in the majors. Urias faced S.F. five times this year and was good in four of them, while Gausman faced L.A. three times and was quality once.
