Braves get shutout
Atlanta was shut out on Tuesday night, suffering a 9-0 loss to the Dodgers in Los Angeles. The Braves are now 18-18 on the season, 8-8 on the road and 19-15-1 with the over. Atlanta has Mike Foltynewicz on the mound tonight. He is 0-1 this year with a 5.06 ERA.
Atlanta couldn’t get going on Tuesday night, racking up just four hits with one extra-base hit. Josh Donaldson had a double to highlight the Braves at the plate. Max Fried gave up four runs in just one inning of work to set Atlanta off to a bad start. He falls to 4-2 with the loss.
Dodgers grab another win
Los Angeles won its fourth in five games with the 9-0 win over the Braves on Tuesday night. Los Angeles is 24-14 on the season, 14-4 at home and 20-17-1 with the over. Clayton Kershaw gets the start for the Dodgers tonight. He is 1-0 on the season with a 2.77 ERA.
Hyun-Jim Ryan had a great outing, pitching a complete game shutout for the Dodgers. He gave up just four hits and no walks with six strikeouts. He improved to 4-1 on the season and has a 2.03 ERA now. Justin Turner bashed three home runs in the win, as he drove in six runs. Max Muncy added two hits and drove in two runs.
MLB Betting Trends
The Braves are 1-4 in their last five against a winning team and 1-5 in their last six road games against a left-handed starter.
The Dodgers are 14-6 in their last 20 games following a win. They are also 77-25 in Kershaw’s last 102 starts.
Kershaw hasn’t been his best this year, but it has still been really good. He has gone at least six innings in every start and the Dodgers have won all four of his outings. Foltynewicz hasn’t been terrible, but isn’t getting deep into games and he hasn’t gotten much run support. I think Atlanta is fighting a really uphill battle tonight in Los Angeles. The Dodgers are rolling at home and have their ace on the mound.
