Shane’s Free Pick
The pitching for the Braves wasn’t good on Friday night, but it’s going to be much different in this game. Strider has been really good this season and he’s going to lockdown in this game. The Nationals bats are going to struggle to get any type of offense going here and this is going to be an easy victory for the Braves. Back the Braves -1.5 to cash here.
