The Colorado Rockies and Atlanta Braves face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Truist Park. In the first game of the series, it was the Rockies that were able to secure the 3-2 victory. 

The Rockies come into this game with a 56-74 record overall but on Tuesday they used good pitching to find success. On offense, C.J. Cron was a different making finishing with two runs driven in. The Rockies offense has been fine overall this season, but the pitching has really let them down. They are giving up 5.44 runs per game which is 30th in the league. Cron has hit 24 home runs and driven in 86 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Braves who sit with a 79-51 record overall but they have lost three games in a row. Two of those three games were only lost by one run. The Braves offense overall this season is averaging 4.95 runs per game which is 3rd in the league. In this game, the Braves bats need to get going early and put the pressure on the Rockies. 

On the mound for the Rockies is Ryan Feltner who sits with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 5.87. In his last start against the New York Mets, he went 4.2 innings giving up six hits and three runs. 

On the mound for the Braves is Kyle Wright who sits with a 16-5 record and an ERA of 2.99. In his last start against the Pirates, he went seven innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

The Braves are 8-0 in Wright’s last eight home starts. The over is 4-1 in the Braves last five games on grass. The under is 5-1 in Wright’s last six home starts against a team with a losing record. 

The Braves have won the last eight home starts by Wright and he is going to lockdown again in this game. In Wright’s last start he gave up zero runs, and the Rockies bats are going to struggle to score here. Look for the Braves to get their bats on the right track against Feltner who sits with an ERA of 5.87. The Braves will cruise to the victory here. Back the Braves -2.5.
