The Atlanta Braves and San Diego Padres face off on Sunday in a National League MLB showdown at Petco Park. 

The Padres opened up the series with a 12-1 victory. Each of the last two games though it’s been the Braves that have secured 5-2 victories. 

The Padres sit with a 5-5 record but over the last two games they have scored only four runs total and in this game if they want a chance to get the job done they are going to need to find more offensive success. Jurickson Profar has been the top player for the Padres hitting three home runs and driving in nine RBI’s.

The Braves come into this game with a 5-5 record overall and they have some confidence winning the last two games. At times the offense has been a bit inconsistent and they need to find a way to score some runs early. The top offensive player for the Braves has been Ozzie Albies and he has hit four home runs and driven in eight RBI’s. 

Getting the start for the Braves will be Bryce Edler and he sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 4.76. In his first start he went 5.2 innings giving up six hits and three runs. 

On the mound for the Padres will be Yu Darvish who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 10.57. In his last start against Cleveland, he went 1.2 innings giving up eight hits and nine runs. Darvish needs to have a strong start if the Padres want a chance in this game. 

The Braves are 13-4 in their last 17 games against the National League West. The Padres are 17-39 in their last 56 games overall. The under is 13-5 in the last 18 meetings between the two teams. 

Darvish struggled in his last start but he was strong in his first start and he is going to get back to that form in this one. Look for the Padres to also find some success against Edler and the Padres will score enough to get the job done. Back the Padres on the money line.
