Braves Offense Wans’t Good Enough

The Braves' offense wasn’t good enough in the first game, scoring only three runs, and they ended up losing by a run. The Braves are averaging 4.43 runs, while their pitching is giving up 3.78 runs per game. The offense is ranked 14th in the league, while the pitching is ranked 7th. They have a run differential of 0.65 which is 7th best in the league. Marcell Ozuna has hit 21 home runs and driven in 64 RBis so far this season. Getting the start for the Braves in Game 1 will be Chris Sale, who sits with a 10-2 record and an ERA of 2.91. In his last start against the New York Yankees, he went five innings, giving up one hit and one run. 

Cardinals Coming off a Victory

On Monday, the Cardinals were able to secure the 4-3 victory. Lance Lynn went 6.2 innings, giving up four hits and one run. The Cardinals are averaging 4.04 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.43 runs per game. The offense is ranked 23rd in the league while the pitching is ranked 18th. Nolan Gorman has hit 16 home runs and driven in 36 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Cardinals in Game 1 will be Andre Pallante who sits with a 3-3 record and an ERA of 5.23. In his last start against the San Francisco Giants, he went 5.1 innings, seven hits and five runs. 

Atlanta Braves vs St. Louis Cardinals Prediction

Sale has been dominant. In the last game, he went five innings, giving up one hit and one run. Pallante sits with an ERA of 5.23, and he’s going to be blown up here. The Braves are going to get to him here early. Sale isn’t going to give up more than a run here, and the Cardinals bats are going to be ice-cold against the bullpen, too. The Braves are going to cruise to victory. Back the Braves to win the first game. 

In the second game, I don’t have a strong opinion either way. The Braves have been the better offensive team, so we will take a lean with them, although I feel much stronger about the first game. Back the Braves.
