Braves’ Newcomb walks five in loss to Red Sox

Sean Newcomb walked five and allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Red Sox. That step forward Newcomb had taken with his control this year doesn't look so pronounced now; he's walked 34 in 56 1/3 innings since the beginning of July. With just one strong start in his last five, it seems like time to give up on him in mixed leagues.

Giants’ Rodriguez strikes out six in no-decision

Dereck Rodriguez whiffed six batters over six innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday. Rodriguez surrendered only six hits over six frames in the high-octane offensive environment of Coors Field, but was forced to settle for a no-decision after the Giants bullpen imploded in the seventh inning. A solo homer off the bat of Rockies outfielder David Dahl in second inning represented the lone tally against the right-hander, who continues to turn heads with his impressive rookie campaign. The 26-year-old has worked at least six innings, while allowing three earned runs or fewer in 12 of his 15 outings since May 29. He’s 6-2 with a 2.41 ERA, microscopic 1.05 WHIP and 78/27 K/BB ratio in 15 starts.

MLB Betting Trends

Atlanta

The Braves are 4-1 in their last five road games and 14-4 in their last 18 games versus an opponent with a losing record.

San Francisco

The Giants are 1-9 in their last 10 games overall and winless over their last eight.

Prediction:

The Braves are 5-11 in their last 16 games played at AT&T Park but their price is outstanding considering how badly the Giants are slumping. San Francisco has virtually nothing left offensively as injuries have taken over the Giants’ roster for a second consecutive season. The Braves are on the only play here.

 

The Pick: Atlanta Braves -115
