Even though they are ten games out of first place in the National League West, the Padres haven’t packed it in as is evident by their dismantling of the Braves on Friday.
For their part, Atlanta has been able to stay within striking distance of the Philadelphia Phillies (five game back) with great pitching. The Braves 3.09 team ERA is second best in the majors this season (Phillies 3.06).
In their last six starts combined, tonight’s starting pitchers have allowed just 21 total earned runs. With two soft hitting teams, we expect another pitching dual here tonight.
Take the Braves over the Padres at -134 on the Bodog Money Line!
