    The more I think about it the more I feel tomorrow is a must win. Most importantly, we need Wright to go at least 5-6 innings. Anything less and we are really putting our bullpen in a tough spot. We've already used Martin and Melancon back to back days. Game 4 and 5 are very likely to be bullpen games, which means somebody like Wilson, Ynoa, or Tomlin will be asked to go multiple innings. The thought of that scares the hell out of me. Meanwhile, the Dodgers will have Urias tomorrow, potentially Kershaw game 4, and I'm guessing Dustin May will get a start. Walker Buehler would likely pitch a game 6 against Fried. This is where the Dodgers pitching depth has a real chance to potentially turn the tide of the series. If Wright struggles tomorrow and we have burn a lot of bullpen arms in a loss we'll be in trouble. The Dodgers could then throw Kershaw against our bullpen, which will either be tired arms or somebody like Wilson and then they easily could tie up the series. If that happens and the Dodgers get hot, we're screwed. We really need Wright to pitch well and give the team a chance to go up 3-0. Keep the bullpen mostly fresh and try to win the series in 4 or 5. The longer the series goes the harder it'll be to win. We've got the Dodgers down and we need to finish them off. They got some momentum back late tonight but that was mostly off of a soft throwing Tomlin and a lot of that momentum probably swung back our way when we finished them off. Need more of the same tomorrow.

    Great points, but if we lose the next two you have to expect Fried in G5.

    I really hate the 7 games in 7 days because it is going to tax the bullpen. How many of the Braves' bullpen guys can pitch 3 days in a row? I really hope Kyle can somehow give the team 6 innings tonight so that the bullpen has a decent number of arms available for game #4.

    I'm ok with 5 but after watching Anderson walk 4 and last just 4 innings yesterday, hoping 5 from Wright is probably wishful thinking. We have Minter, Greene and Smith for tonights game, so if Wright somehow gives us 5 we might need some sort of comination of Webb-Dayton to pitch one more inning.

    I know that defense was probably the reason but I think Sandoval would've been the better choice over Camargo. More experienced and probably a better bat.

    From the pitch tracker I am following on it looks like he isn't getting any help from the Ump either. there have been a few pitches the pitch tracker has in the zone that have been called balls
