The Braves open their Division Series matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals with two daytime starts at SunTrust Park.
Atlanta reached the postseason after winning back-to-back division titles for the first time since 2004-2005. That’s how far you’ll have to go find Atlanta’s last playoff wins when the game start was before 6 p.m.
In 2004, Atlanta won two daytime starts against the Houston Astros in the Division Series. In all, the Braves are 2-8 in their last 10 postseason daytime starts. One of those losses came in the 2012 Wild Card game against St. Louis — infamously known for a infield-fly rule — at Turner Field.
