The Atlanta Braves will play the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 2 of their series at Chase Field on Tuesday night.
The Atlanta Braves are 23-26 this season and have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. Atlanta lost to Arizona in Game 1 by a score of 6-2 in Monday. The Atlanta pitching staff has a 4.00 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a .232 opponent batting average this season. The Braves offense has scored 200 runs with a .232 batting average and a .302 on base percentage. Austin Riley is batting .250 with 12 home runs and 24 RBI’s for the Braves this season. The projected starter for Atlanta is Charlie Morton, who is 3-3 with a 5.28 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP over 44.1 innings pitched this season.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are 24-26 this season and have lost four of their last five games. Prior to the Game 1 win, Arizona lost all four games in their series against the Dodgers. The Arizona pitching staff has a 4.15 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a .246 opponent batting average. The Diamondbacks offense has scored 195 runs with a .217 batting average and a .299 on base percentage this year. Daulton Varsho is batting .259 with eight home runs and 21 RBI’s for the Diamondbacks this season. The projected starter for Arizona is Humberto Castellanos, who is 3-2 with a 5.22 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP over 39.2 innings pitched this season.
Atlanta is 6-1 in their last 7 game two’s of a series and 10-4 in their last 14 Tuesday games. The over is 5-2-1 in Atlanta’s last 8 games. Arizona is 60-124 in their last 184 games and 0-5 in their last home games. The over is 5-0 in Arizona’s last 5 Tuesday games. The over is 17-5-1 in these two teams last 23 head to head meetings in Arizona.
Both of these pitchers come into this game with ERA’s above 5.00 and we can expect to see a good amount of runs scored. Morton has allowed 7 runs over his last 9.2 innings, while Castellanos has allowed 9 runs over his last 9.1 innings pitched. I like the over in this game with these two starters going head to head.
