Braves falter at Yankees

After taking the series opener at New York, Atlanta lost the next two games including a 6-2 decision Wednesday afternoon. Ender Inciarte went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run to help pace the Braves offense. Ozzie Albies finished 3-for-5, while Johan Camargo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk. Charlie Culberson finished 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles. Julio Teheran took the loss as he allowed five earned runs on five hits with 10 strikeouts and four walks over five innings.

Brewers sweep past Twins

Milwaukee enters having won three in a row at home against the Twins, taking yesterday's finale by a count of 3-2. Travis Shaw was 2-for-3 with a solo home run to lead the Brewers offense, while Brad Miller and Nate Orf both went 1-for-3 with a solo homer. Jeremy Jeffress picked up the win in relief as he threw 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief, allowing one hit while striking out one.

Max Fried (1-2, 2.55 ERA) starts today for Atlanta, while Milwaukee will go with Jhoulys Chacin (6-3, 3.71).

MLB Betting Trends


The over is 12-4 in the last 16 Atlanta road games. The over is 9-4-1 in the last 14 Braves games overall.


The over is 6-2 in the last eight Brewers games vs. the NL East. The over is 5-2-1 in the last eight Milwaukee games overall.


Fried was outstanding in his last start, but I don't see him duplicating it here in a more hitter-friendly stadium. Chacin has been good this season, but has slowed down of late and his luck might be running out. We have two solid offenses here and I think the runs will pile up enough to hit the over on the total.
