At 2:05 pm, our selection is on the Miami Marlins over the Atlanta Braves.  It's not surprising that the Braves are up 2-0 on the Marlins in this series.  They are heavily favored to advance to the NL Championship.  This is why they feel confident in putting Kyle Wright on the mound today to start Game 3.  Wright is a third-year pitcher with a career record of 2-7 and an ERA of 6.22 through 19 appearances (12 starts).  Wright did slightly better in 2002, going 2-4 with a 5.21 ERA in eight starts but he got knocked around pretty good in two consecutive starts against the Marlins.  In those two starts, Wright allowed eight runs on nine hits in seven innings and the Braves were out-scored by a combined 16-2.  Miami will give 22-year-old rookie RHP Sixto Sanchez his second shot at playoff action as he gets the ball this afternoon.  Sanchez went 3-2 with a 3.46 ERA in seven starts in 2020 and he held the Cubs scoreless over five innings in Game 2 of the Wild Card series.  Atlanta is 0-5 in Wright's last five starts vs. winning teams.  Take Miami.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie
