The Braves have made the postseason 21 times in the last 31 seasons (and would have made that 22 if not for the 1994 strike). But they have won only one postseason series since 2001 — a division series last year against the Marlins (who had defeated the Cubs in a wild-card series).

Atlanta is making noise like they want to go to their first World Series since 1995, despite going into this NLCS with 18 fewer regular season wins than the Dodgers.

However, they will have to get past Max Scherzer tonight if they want to head to Los Angeles with a 2-0 series lead.

Here’s everything you need to know for tonight’s LCS game.
