Shane’s Free Pick

The Braves offense was good on Monday, but this game is going to be different. Dane Dunning gets the start for the Rangers and he’s been lights out this year sitting with an ERA of 1.72. Dunning is going to lockdown the Braves offense. The Rangers will also give him enough run support to win this game on the run line.
