Play the over. We might have gotten burned on the over yesterday but I like it again here today. The Marlins are going with young right hander Sixto Sanchez. I really like what Sanchez brings to the table but I don't see the Braves lineup being held to just 2 runs like yesterday. They have one of the top lineups in baseball and the best 1, 2, and 3 hitters in baseball statistically speaking. They are also getting great production from guys like Dansby Swanson who is hitting .429 this post season. Sanchez had an ERA of 4.00 against this Braves team during the regular season and I think he will give up a few today. The Braves are countering with rookie Kyle Wright. Wright has had his struggles this season as evident by his 5.21 ERA. Control has been an issue for Wright this season as he has issued 24 walks in 38 innings pitched. He started twice against the Marlins this year and did not have any success. His ERA over those two starts is a whopping 10.29. This game is going to go over the posted total.
