The Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays meet Saturday in MLB action at TD Ballpark.

The Atlanta Braves look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Braves have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last five games. The Braves have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Ronald Acuna Jr. leads the Braves with 29 hits and 18 RBI while Austin Riley and Freddie Freeman have combined for 43 hits and 23 RBI. Charlie Morton gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 4.76 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Morton is 2-2 with a 3.46 ERA and 50 strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.

The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Blue Jays have scored 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Blue Jays have won five straight games when scoring four or more runs. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. leads the Blue Jays with 28 hits and 20 RBI while Bo Bichette and Randal Grichuk have combined for 49 hits and 32 RBI.

The Braves are 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 Saturday games. The Blue Jays are 4-9 in their last 13 during game 2 of a series. The over is 4-1 in Braves last 5 overall. The under is 7-2-1 in Blue Jays last 10 overall. The Braves are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Toronto and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Toronto Blue Jays didn't announce a starting pitcher for this game at the time the article was published, but I'm not sure it matters. Charlie Morton hasn't been great so far this season and the Blue Jays offense is on fire and confident at the moment. It feels like the Toronto Blue Jays are in good shape no matter who gets the ball tonight. Give me the Blue Jays.
