The Cardinals turn to 23-year-old right-hander Jack Flaherty (11-8, 2.75 ERA) in Game 5. Flaherty – who posted a 0.91 ERA in the second half – picked up the loss in Game 2, giving up three runs in seven innings.
For the Braves, it's Mike Foltynewicz (8-6, 4.54 ERA) who gets the start, coming off seven shutout innings in Game 2. St. Louis managed just three hits against the right-hander, who came out for a pinch-hitter after just 81 pitches.
