Ender Inciarte finished 1-for-3 with a walk and a run. Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis were both 1-for-4 with a walk. Johan Camargo went 2-for-3 with two walks.

MLB Betting Trends


The Red Sox are 33-20 against teams with a winning record this season. Boston is 11-0 when Porcello has started an interleague game the last two seasons.


The Braves are 36-24 after a loss this season. Three of four meetings have gone over the total this season.


Newcomb has pitched well against a lot of good teams this season and while Porcello has been outstanding in interleague games, all streaks have to come to the end. Atlanta has bounced back well after wins all season and being the home team will help it even this series at a game apiece.
