Atlanta Braves vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

This has a chance to be the best game on Tuesdays card, as Charlie Morton and Zac Gallen are two fantastic pitchers when they're at their best. So with that said, I lean toward the Diamondbacks because they're at home and Gallen has been slightly sharper despite pitching just twice since June. At home, Gallen has been even better. Morton has been hit on the road, and the Diamondbacks have had success against him in the past. Pick 'em spot, but give me the Diamondbacks at home.
