Online Baseball Betting Odds:
The Braves tumble into this Wednesday night matchup sporting a 61-49 record that ranks them 2nd in the NL East. At the current moment, the division-leading Philadelphia Phillies own a 1 ½ game lead over Atlanta. Having said that, it’s clear the Braves have a tremendous shot at the No. 1 spot in the division. But since Atlanta is 2-2 in their last 4 matchups, they’ll need more consistent victories to get there. Tonight’s matchup will be the 5th time these two face each other in the second half of the season. So far things are all tied up at 2-2. To help take the lead, the Braves will be sending Mike Foltynewicz to the mound this evening. He is 8-7 this season and will be vying to improve on his 3.04 ERA and his 1.18 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Nick Markakis (13 HR, 69 RBI, .323 BA), Freddie Freeman (18 HR, 69 RBI, .315 BA), and Ozzie Albies (20 HR, 59 RBI, .277 BA).
The Nats charge into this NL East pairing flashing a 58-55 record that ranks them 3rd in the division. With a 6-game deficit between them and the NL East leading Phillies, it’s safe to say that Washington is starting to fall down the divisional ladder. However, they’ve had plenty of success this season and are one lengthy win streak away from returning right back to the mix of things. And since Washington is 3-1 in their last 4 matchups, they have the momentum to get started right away. Tommy Milone will get the start this evening. Milone is 1-0 on the year and has a 3.00 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP to his name.
Players to Watch: Juan Soto (14 HR, 39 RBI, .315 BA), Anthony Rendon (16 HR, 56 RBI, .284 BA), and Matt Adams (18 HR, 48 RBI, .276 BA).
