BIG AL's 23-10 MLB DIVISION S*M*A*S*H!
Atlanta Braves (26-19) at Washington Nationals (17-26)
Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 6:05 pm
At 6:05 pm, our selection is on the Atlanta Braves over the Washington Nationals. After scoring 36 runs over their two previous games, the Braves "only" scored 7 runs last night, but lost 8-7 in 12 innings to the Nationals. Tonight, we'll take the Braves to bounce back behind rookie RHP Ian Anderson, who is 2-0 this season, with a 2.40 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. Washington will counter with southpaw Patrick Corbin, who is having a down season, with a 2-4 record, and 4.34 ERA. Washington has now dropped Corbin's last five starts, and is also 2-7 his last nine starts as an underdog. The Braves are outscoring their opponents by 1.15 runs per game this season. And that bodes well for them this evening, as Washington is a poor 10-23 at home vs. foes that outscore their opponents by 1+ runs per game. Take Atlanta. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
