He struck out six. He is 3-6 with an ERA of 5.70 and 60 strikeouts in 12 appearances against the Braves in his career.
The total has gone OVER in 11 of Atlanta's last 13 games on the road.
Atlanta are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Miami.
Miami Marlins are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games.
Miami Marlins are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games at home.
The Marlins have struggled offensively as they are averaging 1.9 runs per game in their last 10 games and have lost 9 of their last 10 games at home. Pablo Lopez will take the mound for the Marlins who has struggled in his last 2 starts allowing 10 runs across 7.2 innings and has a 5.70 ERA vs Braves in his career. The Braves offense exploded against the Red Sox scoring 17 runs in 2 games. They'll send Jake Odorizzi to the mound who has a good debut with the Braves although he lost to the Mets. With Lopez struggling I think the Braves batters will stay hot and win this game. Take the Braves.
