The Atlanta Braves need a win to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Braves have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games.

The Marlins are 25-52 in their last 77 Wednesday games and 4-1 in Conleys last 5 starts. The Braves are 0-7 in their last 7 Wednesday games and 2-5 in their last 7 games vs. a left-handed starter. The Marlins are 28-57 in the last 85 meetings.
It's damn near impossible to back the Braves during this brutal losing stretch, as they're giving up runs left and right. The fish also have looked pretty good on the road lately. I'm bringing the broom out.
