Shane’s Free Pick

Max Fried has been lights out this season and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. Dean Kremer sits with an ERA of 6.67 and that is going to be the difference as the Braves are going to get the job done. The Orioles are going to score only a run or two in this game. Back the Braves on the run line.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
