Freddie Freeman still in Braves two-hole for NLCS Game 3
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is hitting second again on Tuesday in Game 3 of the NLCS against right-hander Walker Buehler and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Freeman went 0-for-8 with seven strikeouts in the first two games of the series, but the Braves are sticking with the same lineup as they shift to Los Angeles with a chance to sweep. Charlie Morton is the starting pitcher for Atlanta.
numberFire's models project Freeman for 12.5 FanDuel points on Tuesday and he has a $3,600 salary. The Braves have the lowest implied total on the board (3.25) against Buehler, who recorded a 3.73 SIERA in the regular season. However, Buehler's strikeout rate has fallen from 26.0% in the regular season to 20.9% across 10 1/3 postseason innings.
