Atlanta Braves Fantasy Spin

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in the Braves' loss to the Brewers in extra-innings on Sunday. Freeman swatted a game-tying homer -- his 11th long ball of the season -- off Brewers' starter Brandon Woodruff in the seventh inning. He also singled in the fourth inning. The 29-year-old veteran first baseman has been on an absolute tear, leaving the yard in each of his last four games. He's hitting .318/.408/.581 across 206 plate appearances this season.

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Pablo Sandoval hit a pinch-hit, opposite-field solo home run in the 10th inning Sunday to help the Giants edge the Diamondbacks 3-2. Sandoval stepped in against D'backs reliever Yoshihisa Hirano in the 10th inning and slapped a liner to left that got out quickly, giving the Giants the lead. The homer was Sandoval's seventh of the year, and he's been especially hot lately, smacking four in his last six games. The 32-year-old is hitting a healthy .301/.326/.675 on the year but is still without a true defensive home and is probably best suited for an American League team. For the time being, his best work will likely continue to come as a pinch-hitter and designated hitter in interleague contests.

MLB Betting Trends

Atlanta

The Braves have won six straight road games when facing a team with a losing home record.

San Francisco

The Giants are just 17-37 in their last 54 games when playing a team with a winning record.

Prediction:

Assuming he and his teammates can keep the red-hot Panda in the yard, Soroka should mow down the Giants’ light-hitting offense. The Braves have won four of his last five starts and are 5-1 in his last six outings on the road. Meanwhile, Andrew Suarez will toe the rubber for the Giants, who are 1-4 in his last five starts and are 0-4 in his last four outings when facing an opponent with a winning record. The G-Men have been a bad bet coming off a win, posting a 1-5 record in their last six games following a victory.

The Pick: Atlanta Braves -131
