Game One Pick: Chris Paddack has been god awful in the month of July, allowing 22 hits and 16 earned runs in 16 innings. Kyle Muller has had a short sample size this season, but he’s been rather solid and certainly better than what Paddack has shown. Give me the Braves in game 1.
Game Two Pick: Reiss Knehr has just 3.2 big league innings under his belt and we need to see a larger sample size before backing him with confidence. Charlie Morton has been one of the better pitchers for the Braves this season and he’s allowed a combined 10 runs in his last six starts. The Braves have a clear edge in game two on the mound.
