The Braves offense consisted of three hits and a pair of bases on balls with Ronald Acuna Jr., Freddie Freeman and Johan Camargo recording hits.
Anibal Sanchez has been named as the starter at Miami on Saturday. Sanchez comes off of a 4-2 loss versus Colorado where he allowed three runs on five hits and two BB over 6.2 frames.
The Miami Marlins didn’t do much at the plate Friday but survived behind outstanding work on the mound. Miami starter Dan Straily improved to 5-6 with six scoreless innings while three relievers put up zeros.
The Marlins did their damage on three hits and five bases on balls with Derek Dietrich knocking in Brian Anderson.
Left hander Wei-Yin Chen toes the rubber against the Braves on Saturday. Chen did not receive a decision in a 7-5 win at Washington with a pair of runs plated over 5.2 innings.
Atlanta are 4-0 in their last 4 road games and Atlanta are 4-0 in their last 4 overall. Under is 7-2-2 in Miami last 11 home games and Miami are 2-6 in their last 8 home games and Miami are 7-19 in their last 26 overall. Over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Miami and Atlanta are 21-8 in the last 29 meetings.
Chen has come up big from time to time but I look for the Braves to rebound from a poor offensive performance…
