Game Moved to Thursday due to rain

Pitching Matchup:
Weaver (1-0, 0.00 ERA postseason; 5-4, 5.18 regular season) erased a lot of doubts and answered a lot of questions with a fine showing in Game 2 of the Division Series -- it was the first effective playoff start of his career. It gets harder in this next round, though, as he goes up against an extremely potent lineup, not to mention a lineup that knocked him around less than two months ago. Weaver showed a quality curveball in the Division Series; if he can mix that with the impressive fastball he had in his last two regular season starts, he's got a chance.

Glavine (1-0, 0.00 ERA postseason; 15-7, 3.82 ERA regular season) clearly has found himself in the last month. Battered by the Astros on Sept. 1, he has produced a 4-1 record and 1.88 ERA in six subsequent starts, one of them his six-scoreless inning start against the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLDS. His recent performance (39 base runners and two home runs in 38 1/3 innings) and his pitching in the first half of his season -- he went to the All-Star Game with an 11-2 record -- suggest he is a greater force at age 40 than he is generally thought to be.
