San Diego vs. Atlanta, 05/02/2019 12:10 EDT, Score: 11 - 2

Money Line: -132 Atlanta

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Loss

The Atlanta Braves defeated the San Diego Padres 5-1 on Wednesday for their third triumph in four games. I think they'll come through with another win here in the finale of this four-game set.

Braves' right-hander Mike Foltynewicz (0-0, 6.00) will make his second start for the season after starting the campaign on the injured list. He gave up four runs in six innings against Colorado in his season debut, but also fanned five. Foltynewicz posted a 2.40 ERA in seven day starts last season and I expect a sharp outing from the 27 year old today.

The Padres hand the ball to left-hander Matt Strahm (0-2, 3.04 ERA) who has been dominant in most of his starts, but with little to show for it. He is still looking for his first W, and San Diego has lost three of his five starts while providing him with just 15 runs of support. We can also note that the Braves are 6-2 in their last eight games vs. a left-handed starter.

The Braves have won four of the last five meetings overall and 21 of the last 28 as a home team.

8* play on Atlanta Braves.
