The Atlanta Braves look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Braves have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Braves have split their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Nick Markakis leads Atlanta with 68 hits and 17 RBI while Freddie Freeman and Andrelton Simmons have combined for 62 RBI. The Atlanta Braves have won five of their last eight home games. Julio Teheran takes the hill, and he’s 4-2 with a 4.87 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season. Teheran is 1-2 with a 5.79 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The Padres are 3-8 in their last 11 during game 4 of a series and 2-7 in Cashners last 9 starts. The Braves are 6-16 in their last 22 vs. National League West and 4-1 in Teherans last 5 starts. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
In a game on short rest, I like the home team and the small chalk. Besides, I have more confidence in Teheran than Cashner, who has had little to no luck all season long.
