The Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves face off in a National League East showdown at SunTrust Park.These two teams have played six games so far this year and each team won three games. The last game between these two teams Atlanta won 29-9.
The Miami Marlins were having success winning three games in a row heading in Sunday’s game against the Washington Nationals. In that game the Marlins offense was bad, but the pitching staff was even worse giving up 15 runs and that led to a blowout loss. Far too often this season has the Marlins pitching staff been blown up by the opposing team. The Marlins best offensive player has been Brian Anderson who has hit nine home runs and driven in 35 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Braves who won two of their three games over the weekend against the Mets. On Sunday, the Braves had a good start, and the pitching staff needs to continue to be strong. Ronald Acuna Jr was the star of the show on Sunday driving in four RBI’s. On the season Acuna has driven in 27 RBI’s and hit 13 home runs. Freddie Freeman has also hit 11 home runs and driven in 48 RBI’s.
Trevor Rogers will get the start for the Marlins and coming into this game he sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 6.00.
Huascar Ynoa will get the start for the Braves and coming into this game he sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 5.30.
The over is 6-1-1 in the Marlins last eight road games. The over is 6-0-3 in the Braves last nine games played on Monday. The over is 14-5-4 in the Braves last 23 games as a favorite. The Marlins are 7-23 in their last 30 meetings in Atlanta against the Braves. The under is 6-2-2 in the last ten meetings between the Marlins and Braves.
Both of these pitchers haven’t been great and this is going to be a high scoring affair. Look for both teams to run up the score and this game will go well over the posted total.
