The Braves and Cards are headed for a Wildcard game showdown tonight! Is this Chipper's last game? Or does Medlen again rise to the occasion and get the Braves to the NLDS?

Braves will win tonight but we gotta bring the bats and get some key hits because If we get 3 runs for him it's over but ill be at the game and go braves!!!
I think the Braves get it done today. I am not happy about the first pitch time (just after 5, right in the middle of the ATL rush hour). TV mucks things up yet again.
If Medlen is on the mound the cards don't have a chance. JMO

Nobody gave us a chance last year either! It'll be tough if Medlin is on but at this time of year anything can (and will) happen. Go Cards!
The Braves should win tonight. But in a one game playoff, anything can happen. Medlen will throw a good game though. I'm more worried about our offense generating enough runs. If we can get to the 7th with the lead and turn it over to O'VentBrel, the game should be ours.
The Braves have won 23 straight regular season games with Medlin on the mound. After tonight it will be 1 straight playoff loss with Medlin on the mound. GO CARDS!!
The Braves are a very good team, and Medlen is on some kind of roll. But his streak would have ended two starts ago if not for a walk-off home run by Chipper. He's not unhittable.
That said, the game comes down to how well the Cards hit him today. I expect lots of first-pitch swings if Medlen is throwing strikes. If they can scratch out two or three runs, I like their chances.

Just like last year, the Braves are going to choke and give that spot up to the Cards.
I'm gonna say Chipper gets 2 hits, and Medlin pitches 7 innings and gives up 2 er. Beyond that I'm not confident enough to predict.
