2019-09-15 11:38:00 EDT

The Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals will match up on the MLB diamond Sunday.

In the opener of this set Friday, the Braves secured a 5-0 shutout. On Saturday, Atlanta kept it going, though it took them a little while (sixth inning) to score. The Braves would add nine more runs in the final three frames for a 10-1 win.

For the Sunday game, the Braves will send out Max Fried in the start. Across his 154.1 innings and 16-5 mark so far, Fried has a 4.02 ERA with 164 Ks and 43 BBs.

The Braves are 37-14 in their last 51 Sunday games and 36-16 in their last 52 in game three of a series. Atlanta is 6-1 in Fried’s last seven Sunday starts and 9-2 in his last 11 road starts.

Meanwhile, the Nationals are 5-0 in their last five Sunday games and 19-7 in their last 26 in game three of a series. Washington is 1-4 in Sanchez’s last five home starts and 2-5 in his last seven with four days’ rest.

Fried had consecutive quality starts going in a pair of wins this month, but faltered in Philly his last time out with five earned on seven hits in 5.0 innings during a loss.

As for Sanchez, he coughed up seven earned against the Mets but bounced back with two earned in 7.0 innings in Minnesota his last time up. This should be a fun pitching matchup but I’m leaning toward Fried and the Braves here.
