Kershaw gave up one run and struck out 12 in a winning effort in game one Thursday, meaning he has only had three days rest. It was originally assumed he would start game five, if necessary.
The Braves will lean on Freddy Garcia to keep their season alive. He has been surprisingly effective for Atlanta, accumulating a 1.65 ERA in 27 1/3 innings after being unloaded by the Baltimore Orioles earlier this season.
Down 2-1 in the series, the Braves must win tonight or go home.
