PITCHING MATCHUP: The Braves will throw Aaron Harang, who is 9-6 with a 3.43 ERA, against the Padres' Ross, who is 10-10 with a dazzling 2.60 ERA. Ross' is problem is that he hasn't received enough run support from a weak San Diego offense, which ranks dead last in runs, batting average and slugging percentage. Otherwise Ross should be at the top of the leader board in wins.
MLB FREE PICK: Take San Diego. According to latest MLB trends, the Braves are 4-9 in their last 13 games versus the Padres and 0-6 in their last six games in San Diego. They're also 0-5 in their last five road games, 1-5 in their last six games as a road underdog and 1-5 in their last six games versus a right-handed starter.
