Teheran has upset me so far this season and I'm seeking redemption today. I'll go with him to stay solid and limit the Cardinals today.

Atlanta Braves (61% consensus). It has been a miserable season so far for Jedd Gyorko, but his biggest hit of 2019 sends the St. Louis Cardinals into Sunday's home contest against the Atlanta Braves looking for a series victory. Gyorko, who entered Saturday hitting just .167 with only seven singles and two RBIs, capped a four-run, eighth-inning uprising with a three-run homer to lift St. Louis to a 6-3 victory its sixth win in 21 games... http://bit.ly/2Hiza0y

Talking Chop: Cardiac Braves stun Cards, steal 4-3 win in 10th
For eight innings, the Braves flatlined. St. Louis starter Jack Flaherty had his best start of the year, punching out seven and allowing just three singles (and zero walks) in six frames, flummoxing the Atlanta bats. A pair of defensive miscues granted the Cardinals two runs in the fourth, and a sacrifice fly plated another in the fifth. In the end, none of that mattered, as the Braves collectively reached into their bag of tricks and extracted a stunning victory -- giving them the distinction of winning a game in which they trailed by three or more runs in the ninth twice this year, something the rest of baseball has done only once.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Tied at 3, Cards and Braves headed to extra innings
Hicks allowed a leadoff double to Freddie Freeman, a wild pitch and a run-scoring single to Josh Donaldson before walking Nick Markakis. Austin Riley followed with a run-scoring single to left-center that cut the lead to 3-2 and put runners at second and third with no outs.
Lefty Andrew Miller took over and struck out Brian McCann before allowing a run-scoring single to right to Ozzie Albies to tie the game at 3-3. The Cardinals eventually retired Albies in a rundown for the second out.
St. Louis jumped on top, taking advantage of two Atlanta errors in the fourth inning.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Cards, Braves scoreless through three at Busch
In the Cardinals' first, Dexter Fowler was hit by an 0-2 pitch and promptly stole second. Later in the inning, Marcell Ozuna walked with two outs. Both runners were stranded.
With two outs in the Redbird third, Paul Goldschmidt, Paul DeJong and Ozuna walked to load the bases. But Matt Carpenter grounded out sharply to first baseman Freddie Freeman to end the threat.
CARDS HOPE TO BUILD ON SATURDAY WIN
Jedd Gyorko's three-run homer in the eighth inning on Saturday night gives the Cardinals a chance to take two of three from the Atlanta Braves at Busch Stadium.
Talking Chop: No Sunday lineup special for the Braves in St. Louis finale
Here they are, your nearly bog-standard lineups for the series finale between the Braves and Cardinals on Sunday night:
This is the same lineup that both teams ran out in the series opener on Friday night, and hopefully, as happened in that game, the Braves prevail in this one.
These Cardinals have seen a lot of Teheran through the years, especially former division for Marcell Ozuna, who has taken the righty deep twice. Matt Carpenter also has a homer against the long-time Brave.
