The Braves had won the final game of the regular season every year since 2012.
Who will the Braves play?
Atlanta awaits the winner of a tiebreaker game Monday afternoon between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies. The loser of that game will play in the wild-card round. The winner hosts the Braves, starting Thursday, in a best-of-five series.
(The Braves went 2-5 against both N.L. West teams in the regular season.)

Can I still get tickets?
The Braves put single-game National League Division Series tickets on sale to the general public Sept. 19.
SunTrust Park has a seating capacity of 41,149. The Braves infamously had less-than-capacity crowds during their last playoff games at their former home, Turner Field, which seated about 8,500 more fans.
