The Atlanta Braves look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Braves have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 11 games. The Atlanta Braves have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Ozzie Albies leads the Braves with 41 hits and 18 RBI while Nick Markakis and Freddie Freeman have combined for 78 hits and 40 RBI. Max Fried gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 2.11 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. This will be Fried’s second career game against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Dodgers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers are 19-5 this season when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 50 hits and 38 RBI while Justin Turner and Corey Seager have combined for 65 hits and 22 RBI. Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 2.55 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Ryu is 0-1 with a 2.95 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.
The Braves are 3-7 in their last 10 vs. National League West, 1-4 in their last 5 road games vs. a left-handed starter and 4-1 in their last 5 road games. The Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 64-31 in their last 95 vs. National League East and 36-16 in Ryu's last 52 home starts. The Braves are 8-21 in the last 29 meetings in Los Angeles and 11-28 in the last 39 meetings. The over is 6-1 in Ryu's last 7 home starts. The over is 5-2 in Fried's last 7 starts overall.
The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to dominate at home and have an offense that seems to never run out of gas. Ryu has also been really solid lately, allowing no more than two runs in each of the seven games he's pitched, and the Dodgers have great success with him on the mound at home dating back the last couple of years. Fried has been great for the Braves and you can never count this team out in their own right, but the Dodgers aren't a team I'm trying to step in front of right now, especially at home.
