ATLANTA: Trevor Bauer threw his first pitch high and tight well before the start of the Cincinnati Reds' wild-card series against the Atlanta Braves.

Asked to compare the challenges of facing Braves MVP candidates Freddie Freeman and Marcell Ozuna, Bauer just shrugged.

I dont know, Bauer said Monday. Theyre all tough outs. We can talk about that after we win the series.

Freeman, Ozuna, Ronald Acua Jr. and others give Atlanta, the NL East champions, one of the most powerful lineups in the majors.

Bauer, Luis Castillo and Sonny Gray form a powerful rotation to challenge the Atlanta bats in the best-of-three series that begins Wednesday at Truist Park.

What a great matchup, Reds manager David Bell said Tuesday. I can speak for our guys. Clearly we know what were up against and we know what were facing.

The Braves have won three straight NL East titles but have lost a record-tying 10 consecutive postseason appearances since their last series win in 2001. The Reds, the NL's No. 7 seed, are in the playoffs for the first time since 2013.

Freeman was listening and grinning as Bauer made his prediction for a Reds series win.

I like it. Its fun, Freeman said Tuesday. If anybody didnt think they would win the series on either side, they shouldnt be here. Its all in fun. Were all having a good time. Were just excited to play tomorrow.

Freeman is especially excited to be healthy for the postseason. An elbow injury hurt his swing in last year's NL Division Series loss to St. Louis.

After recovering from a serious case of COVID-19 that left him battling high temperatures immediately before the delayed start of this season, Freeman hit .341 with 13 homers and 53 RBIs.

After manager Brian Snitker moved Freeman to the No. 2 spot in the lineup, behind Acua and ahead of Ozuna, the offense gained momentum.

The Braves scored 348 runs, only one behind the Los Angeles Dodgers for the most in the majors. They also finished second to the Dodgers with 103 home runs.

This offense from top to bottom, its just incredibly tough to navigate, Freeman said. Theyre going to have to be on their A-game with each single pitch to each hitter because each hitter can take you deep and we can beat you in so many different ways.

The Reds ranked seventh in the majors with their 3.84 ERA.

Bauer is a Cy Young Award candidate after leading the National League with a 1.73 ERA, two shutouts and .159 opponents batting average. He ranked second in strikeouts and was named the NL pitcher of the month for September, when he had a 1.29 ERA in five starts.

Pitching on three days of rest, Bauer beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 one week ago in a key game for the Reds' wild-card surge.

The Reds ranked last in the majors with their .212 batting average. They were seventh with 90 homers, only 13 fewer than the Braves.

We havent hit a lot of singles, Bell said. Weve hit for power and hit homers.

The Braves' big question is their makeshift rotation which lost ace Mike Soroka to a torn Achilles tendon and saw Mike Foltynewicz and Sean Newcomb unable to keep their jobs.

Bauer will face left-hander Max Fried (7-0, 2.25) on Wednesday. Fried has appeared in a combined eight postseason games the last two years, all in relief.

The Braves were relieved when Fried threw off the mound without problems on Sunday after turning his ankle in his last start.

Snitker said Acua, who was scratched from Sunday's final regular season game with left wrist irritation, also is fine. Right-hander Chris Martin (groin) also is expected to be available in relief.

Both managers were waiting until Wednesday to announce rosters and starting lineups. The Braves may add third baseman Pablo Sandoval to their bench. He was recalled for the final regular-season game against Boston.

Atlanta's regular third baseman, Austin Riley, sat out the final two regular-season games with a sore quadriceps. Snitker said Riley would start but added I don't know that he'll be completely 100%.
