Atlanta vs Los Angeles: No Shame in Sticking With a Hot Hand
Los Angeles Dodgers: Greinke aims to baffle the Braves
Putting a 4-7 recent run behind them, a stretch that included a three game sweep by the Giants by a 10-0 combined count, Los Angles has won four their last five contests. After scoring nine total runs in their previous eight contests, the Dodgers bats have heated up again as they’ve outscored Atlanta by a 14-3 margin during the first two games of this series. Despite earning one loss and two no-decisions, LA ace RHP Zack Greinke (5-1 ERA 148) has been brilliant as he has given up just three runs during his last 20.2 innings pitched over three starts. Greinke is a flat out stud on the bump.
Atlanta Braves: Middle of the pack NL East crew is in tough tonight
Struggling somewhat through the first quarter of the 2015 MLB season, on the mound and at the plate, Atlanta is 22-23 and sit 3.5 games behind the surging Washington Nationals in the NL East. The Braves 182 RF vs 197 RA ratio is the eighth worst mark in the Majors. RHP Alex Wood (2-2 ERA 3.33) gets the call here and he is coming off a 5-3 win over Miami on May 16. That was Wood’s first win since his season opening gem on April 7th – a 12-2 Braves mauling of the Marlins.
Atlanta vs Los Angeles MLB Prediction: While we were on the right side when we backed the Dodgers over the Padres on Friday – greed cost us a winning ticket. Although the LA bats let us down in that contest, we still aren’t very impressed by the Dodgers bullpen. Learning from our mistake, we are taking a more conservative path tonight. Give us the Dodgers with a 500 unit wager on the Five Innings line posted on the betting board at SportsInteraction.
