The Atlanta Braves need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Braves have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Braves have won five of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Freddie Freeman leads Atlanta with 67 hits and 35 RBI while Andrelton Simmons and Jace Peterson have combined for 48 RBI. The Atlanta Braves have split their last eight home games. Williams Perez takes the hill, and he’s 1-0 with a 3.55 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. This will be Perez’s first career game against the Padres.
The Padres are 36-17 in their last 53 games as a favorite and 3-7 in Ross' last 10 starts. The Braves are 5-16 in their last 21 vs. National League West and 0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter. The under is 22-8-3 in the last 33 meetings in Atlanta.
I don't have a good feel for either of these teams, as the inconsistencies is unreal. However, the Padres are playing better ball as of late, which is why I'm eating the tiny chalk.
