This NL matchup includes the two teams in the bottom of the conference.
The Atlanta Braves have not played well overall, and we could be ready to see some big prospects come up to get some playing time soon.
The Cincinnati Reds started off hot, but it only lasted for a short stint.
The Atlanta Braves lineup hasn’t been hitting well for most of this season, they are led by Freddie Freeman. Freeman is hitting .277 on the season with 42 extra base hits and has knocked in 34 runs.
Nick Markakis is hitting .255 with 22 doubles and a team high 47 runs batted in. Erick Aybar is struggling this season, he is hitting .206 with 10 doubles and only 14 runs batted in.
They look to give DeSclafani his first loss of the season.
The Braves have Lucas Harrell making his 4th start of the season. He is currently 1-1 on the season with a 3.63 E.R.A. and 14 strikeouts.
Harrell last took defeat in his last start where he got beat around by the Colorado Rockies. He pitched in only 3.2 innings where he gave up 5 earned runs on 7 hits.
He struck out 4 batters and walked 2 in the short start. He looks to bounce back against the Reds.
The Cincinnati Reds lineup has not been the issue for their bad season so far. They are led by Joey Votto who is hitting .265 on the season with 15 home runs and 45 runs batted in on the year.
Jay Bruce is right behind Votto with an average of .264; he has hit 45 extra base hits and has knocked in 64 runs this season.
Adam Duvall is near the top of the league in home runs with 23; he has also knocked in 64 runs and is hitting .244 on the year. They will look to continue to hit against the struggling Harrell.
The Cincinnati Reds send out Anthony DeSclafani on the bump against the Braves. DeSclafani still stands at a perfect 4-0 on the season where he carries a 2.55 E.R.A. and 37 strikeouts.
He last was in action in a win against the Milwaukee Brewers. He pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up only 3 earned runs on 6 hits.
DeSclafani also struck out 8 and failed to walk a batter. He looks to stay perfect on the year.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
This game seems to be one of the uglier games to watch, but the Reds seem like they are a much better team than the Braves. I’m taking the Braves in this one for that reason.
DeSclafani is a bright point on this Reds team and I look for him to stay perfect in this one.
Look for the Reds lineup to crack Harrell around early and give him the quick call to the bullpen.
