Dallas Keuchel will be on the mound for the Atlanta Braves as they look to take the National League Division Series over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday.

"Dallas Keuchel was brought here for moments like this," Andy Bunker said. "He started Game 1, that's why you went out and got him. He's going to start today on short rest, that's why you went out and got him."

The Braves had to inform the Cardinals who would be their Game 4 starter on Sunday night. 

The 31-year-old Keuchel is coming off only three days of rest after pitching the series opener at Suntrust Park on Thursday.

He allowed only one run in 4 2/3 innings in Atlanta's 7-6 loss to St. Louis.
