Atlanta Braves vs New York Yankees Prediction

I’ll go with the Braves. We should have a fun starter matchup here, though. Fried is coming off a no-decision versus Detroit with one earned on four hits and three walks in 5.1 innings. As for Cortes, he’s got just two earned on 11 hits and two walks in 13.0 innings over his last two starts.

On Saturday the Braves got pretty much all of their production from the long ball; Marcell Ozuna and Travis d’Arnaud each homered. There wasn’t much going on at the plate beyond that, and the pitching wasn’t much better. The Braves need a big turnaround for Sunday’s finale.
