The Cardinals and Braves begin their National League Division Series tonight at Atlanta. First pitch at SunTrust Park is set for just after 4 p.m. Central. Dallas Keuchel will be on the mound for the Braves, while Miles Mikolas makes his postseason debut for the Cardinals. First baseman Freddie Freeman and outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. are both expected to play for Atlanta after battling injuries down the stretch.
