Braves' Ian Anderson starting Game 2 Wednesday
Atlanta Braves pitcher Ian Anderson will start Game 2 of the National League Division Series on Wednesday afternoon against right-hander Pablo Lopez and the Miami Marlins.
Anderson struck out nine batters over six scoreless innings last Thursday to help the Braves advance past the Cincinnati Reds in the Wild Card Round. The 22-year-old right-hander will now look to secure a 2-0 series lead for the Braves in Wednesday's matinee. Atlanta's full Game 2 lineup: Ronald Acuna CF, Freddie Freeman 1B, Marcell Ozuna DH, Travis d'Arnaud C, Ozzie Albies 2B, Dansby Swanson SS, Adam Duvall LF, Nick Markakis RF, Austin Riley 3B. It's the same one they went with in Tuesday's victory.
numberFire's models expect Anderson to score 36.7 FanDuel points on Wednesday. He has a salary of $9,500.
