Atlanta Braves and San Francisco Giants meet Wednesday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
Atlanta Braves is seeking a victory after winning eight of their last 11 games. Braves have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more rounds in seven of their last 10 games. Atlanta Braves have won seven straight games when they score four or more races. Freddie Freeman leads Braves with 59 hits and 30 RBI while Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies has combined for 105 hits and 52 RBI. Max Fried gets the ball and he is 6-2 with a 2.86 ERA and 46 strikes this season. This will be Fried's second career game against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants are seeking a victory after winning five of their last eight games. The Giants have scored eight races in their last three games and four or more rounds in five of their last 1
Braves is 5-2 in their last 7 in match 3 in a series, 8-3 in their last 11 total and 5- 1 in Fried's last 6 starts with 4 rest days. The Giants are 8-22 in their last 30 in match 3 in a series, 1-6 in their last 7 matches after a win and 7-16 in Samardzija's last 23 starts. Braves are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in San Francisco and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The bottom is 27-13-3 in Giant's last 43 home games. The top is 5-2 in Fried's last 7 starts in total.
Fried has been a bright place for Brave's starting rotation this season, but he has fought through 20 innings along the way allowing a 4.05 ERA and a .305 batting average. Samardzija has been hit in his last three starts but he can easily pitching his best since joining the Giants and has allowed three or less runs in seven of his nine starts. The San Francisco Giants are starting to win some victories and the offense shows some signs of life. Of course, every time I try to get back to the Jews, they all fall apart, but I like the value of the plus money in this place.
