Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers lead into tonight’s pairing flashing a 57-46 record that ranks them 1st in the NL West. With a 1 ½ game lead over the second seeded Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers need to keep winning in order to hang onto their divisional lead. But since Los Angeles is 1-2 in their last 3 matchups, they’ll also need a bit of a rebound in the coming days. Tonight’s pairing will mark the 5th time this season these two have met. With Los Angeles owning a 3-1 lead over Atlanta on the season, it’s easy to see why the Dodgers are pegged as the favorite this evening despite playing on the road. And since the Dodgers are coming off an 8-2 win over Atlanta, taking them straight up seems like the best way to go tonight.
Players to Watch: Matt Kemp (17 HR, 64 RBI, .313 BA), Max Muncy (24 HR, 47 RBI, .267 BA), and Yasmani Grandal (16 HR, 52 RBI, .261 BA).
The Braves tumble into this Friday night matchup sporting a 54-45 record that ranks them 2nd in the NL East. Right now the Braves are 2 ½ games behind the NL East leading Philadelphia Phillies. While that might not be an overbearing lead, the Braves 1-3 record in their last 4 matchups isn’t helping them out one bit. Mike Foltynewicz will get the start this evening. He’ll be looking to improve on his 7-6 record as well as his 2.85 ERA and his 1.16 WHIP. Foltynewicz will be competing against the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw this evening, who is 3-5 on the year.
Players to Watch: Freddie Freeman (17 HR, 66 RBI, .319 BA), Nick Markakis (10 HR, 62 RBI, .316 BA), and Ozzie Albies (20 HR, 56 RBI, .280 BA).
