Braves Lineup

  1. RF Ronald Acuña Jr.
  2. 2B Ozzie Albies
  3. 1B Freddie Freeman
  4. 3B Josh Donaldson
  5. SS Johan Camargo
  6. LF Charlie Culberson
  7. CF Ender Inciarte
  8. C Tyler Flowers
  9. P Mike Foltynewicz (6.26 ERA, 6.19 FIP, 20.1 K%, 38.6 Hard Hit% in 64.2 IP)

Notes: Foltynewicz actually has a slightly better strikeout rate than Mike Soroka, the sensational rookie that the Braves started last night. Other than that, though, his 2019 season has been a train wreck. A former All-Star, Folty joins Colorado’s Kyle Freeland as the only NL arms to throw 50-plus innings with both an ERA and FIP above 6.00. This will be his second outing since returning from Triple-A...The Braves are wrapping up a stretch of 17 games in 17 days. Despite playing disproportionately on the road, they’ve posted a solid 9-7 record and expanded their NL East lead to 6.5 games.

Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Jon Berti
  2. 2B Isan Díaz
  3. RF Brian Anderson
  4. 1B Garrett Cooper
  5. 3B Starlin Castro
  6. LF Harold Ramírez
  7. C Jorge Alfaro
  8. CF Lewis Brinson
  9. P Héctor Noesí (Triple-A stats: 3.82 ERA, 26.1 K% in 125.0 IP)

Notes: Appearing in the majors for the first time since 2015, Noesí was greeted rudely by the Mets last Tuesday (5.0 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 2 HR). His fastball velocity was better than advertised, averaging 93.7 miles per hour...Daniel Toll and Danis Sosa were credentialed for last night’s thrilling win. See their coverage below. The Marlins haven’t won a series against the Braves since the ownership transition, but another successful game today would change that.
