The Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves meet Tuesday in MLB action at Truist Park.
The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Marlins have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five straight games. The Marlins have won six of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Jesus Aguilar leads the Marlins with 30 hits and 23 RBI while Brian Anderson and Corey Dickerson have combined for 54 hits and 31 RBI. Sixto Sanchez gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. This will be Sanchez’s first career game against the Braves.
The Atlanta Braves look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Braves have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine straight games. The Braves have won 10 of their last 16 games when scoring four or more runs. Dansby Swanson leads the Braves with 49 hits and 24 RBI while Marcell Ozuna and Freddie Freeman have combined for 92 hits and 68 RBI. Robbie Erlin gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 6.95 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. Erlin is 1-0 with a 1.71 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 43-89 in their last 132 road games, 22-49 in their last 71 during game 2 of a series and 3-7 in their last 10 overall. The Braves are 38-14 in their last 52 games as a favorite, 21-9 in their last 30 during game 2 of a series and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The over is 5-2 in Marlins last 7 overall. The over is 6-0-2 in Braves last 8 overall. The Marlins are 5-22 in the last 27 meetings in Atlanta and 15-39 in the last 54 meetings.
Sixto Sanchez has allowed five runs and 18 hits in 19 career innings while Robbie Erlin has allowed 15 runs and 17 hits in 18.2 innings since coming over from the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Braves are the more trustworthy team with a more consistent offense, but we're getting plus money with the Marlins and one of the top young pitchers in the game. Sanchez is a star in the making and has been terrific in limited action. I love filthy pitchers and plus money.
Give me the Marlins.
