The surging Atlanta Braves go for the sweep of the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon.
I think as we near the All Star break we have to realize that the Diamondbacks are not going to make a full recovery from their ultra slow start. The Snakes needed a strong finish to the first half of the season but have dropped seven of eleven after a 10-4 defeat at Atlanta on Saturday. Michael Bolsinger was hit hard with seven runs scored on ten hits over 3.2 innings to fall to 1-5. Ender Inciarte connected on his first homer as Arizona scored three times in the first before going silent. Wade Miley takes the ball Sunday with the job of slowing the red hot Atlanta attack. Miley is 3-6 on the season with a 4.61 ERA over 18 outings.

The Braves are the hottest team in the game yet are having some difficulty stretching their lead in the National League East with Washington also winning. The Braves notched win number nine in a row following Sunday's offensive explosion. Aaron Harang shook off a shaky opening frame where he gave up three runs to throw eight innings to improve his record to 8-6. The offense pounded out 14 hits and walked five times with Justin Upton going deep and driving in three while Andrelton Simmons posted two hits and knocked in four. Alex Wood toes the rubber in the final game of the series with the Diamondbacks. Wood has gone 6-6 on the season with a 3.19 ERA.
I know Atlanta can't possibly continue eheir torid hot streak and I know it will end sooner or later but I'm just going with them again and hope the wins keep coming in....
