For the Sunday game, the Braves will be bringing out LHP Max Fried. In his 21.2 innings and 1-1 record this year, Fried has a 3.74 ERA with 15 Ks and 11 BBs.
Atlanta has a few key bats on their roster. Ender Inciarte entered the weekend with 201 hits, 93 runs, 11 homers and 57 RBI while Nick Markakis had 159 hits, 75 runs and 75 RBI in that time. On Saturday, Markakis had one hit; Inciarte didn’t play.
Over on the Marlins’ side, they’re going with RHP Jose Urena on Sunday. In his 164.2 innings and 14-7 record this year, Urena has a 3.77 ERA with 111 Ks and 60 BBs.
Miami has some notable hitters as well. Dee Gordon entered the weekend with 197 hits, 111 runs and 33 RBI while Marcel Ozuna had 91 runs, 190 hits, 36 homers and 122 RBI. Gordon put up three hits with two runs on Saturday; Ozuna was out.
The under is 5-1 in the Braves’ last six Sunday games and the over is 5-2 in the Braves’ last seven during game four of a series. Atlanta is 0-6 in their last six road games and 0-6 in their last six versus the NL East.
Meanwhile, the Marlins are 0-4 in their last four Sunday games and 1-6 in their last seven during game four of a series. Miami is also 4-0 in Urena’s last four starts with four days’ rest and 6-2 in Urena’s last eight Sunday starts.
Fried has been pretty decent in his last few starts, giving up a total of five earned in the span of 14.0 innings on 17 hits. As for Urena, he had a nice run going with six earned over four starts, but then gave up six earned on nine hits in 5.0 innings in Colorado. I’m willing to chalk that last one up to Coors Field, so I’m going to side with Urena and the Marlins here.
