Swanson throws out tying run at home

Ronald Acuna Jr. went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks and a run. Freddie Freeman was 2-for-4 with a walk and a run. Nick Markakis was 1-for-2 with two walks, a run and an RBI. Kurt Suzuki contributed a solo home run in five at-bats. Ender Inciarte was 2-for-5 with a triple and an RBI. Chad Sobotka walked one and retired one batter to earn the win in relief. A.J. Minter picked up his 13th save of the season as he allowed one earned run on two hits with a walk in one inning of work.

Pollock, Peralta reach base three times

A.J. Pollock finished 1-for-4 from the leadoff spot Saturday night with two walks, a run and an RBI. David Peralta went 1-for-3 with two walks and a run. Steven Souza Jr. was 0-for-1 with three walks and a run scored. Andrew Chafin took the loss in relief as he gave up two earned runs on two hits plus a walk in one-third of an inning.

Touki Toussaint (1-1, 3.38 ERA) will start today for Atlanta, while Arizona counters with Robbie Ray (5-2, 4.25).

MLB Betting Trends

Atlanta

The Braves are 20-8 in their last 28 Sunday games. Atlanta is 7-3 in its last 10 road games.

Arizona

The under is 11-3 in the last 14 Diamondbacks games. Arizona is 2-6 in its last eight games overall.

Prediction:

Ray has been phenomenal in his last couple starts as he is finally harnessing his plus stuff again. That bodes well for Arizona today as a team that needs a split in this series to stay in the thick of things in the competitive NL West race. Toussaint is full of promise and was good for a while in his second MLB start against Boston, but he's still learning and probably won't get a lot of run support today. Take the home team in this spot.
