The Miami Marlins will head on the road to face the Atlanta Braves in an NL East battle on Monday. It will be the first game of a four-game set.

Miami will head into this game after splitting their series with the Mets. Their game on Sunday was suspended, so Saturdays 3-0 win was their last game. Trevor Rogers and the bullpen combined for a 3-hit 13 strikeout shutout in the win. From the plate, Jazz Chisholm Jr’s 2nd inning solo shot turned out to be the difference in the game. To start the season, the Marlins have a .215 team batting average, with just 3 HR.

The Marlins wills start young righty Sandy Alcantara on Monday. In his last start he went 6 innings against St. Louis, allowing 2 earned on 3 hits with 10 strikeouts. Against this Braves lineup in his career, he has allowed a .364 batting average with 4 strikeouts in 35 at bats.

Miami is 2-8 in their last 10 games, 4-6 on the run line, and the under is 6-3-1.

Atlanta is 4-6 in their last 10 games, 4-6 on the run line, and the over is 5-5.

Atlanta has been much more consistent from the plate, and should have the edge with Fried on the mound despite has rough outing last time. Alcantara has looked great in two starts this season but will be supported by an offense that ranks 3rd worst in scoring, and a bullpen that has the 5th worst ERA. Give me the Braves to win.
