Interleague action resumes Friday as the Altanta Braves visit Baltimore. The rebuilding Orioles have upset intentions for the surging, NL East-leading Atlanta Braves.
Braves baseball has resurrected after smart trade deadline moves and key lineup returns. New additions Joc Pederson, Adam Duvall and Jorge Soler, along with reinstated Travis d’Arnaud, have boosted the All Star production of MLB’s top infield.
Freedie Freeman (26), Austin Riley (26), Dansby Swanson (24), and Ozzie Albies (22) lead a power surge ranked 2nd NL in home runs.
That offensive production highlights Atlanta’s 13-2 run since Aug. 3. The Braves have won six straight after sweeping Washington and Miami.
Atlanta used big bats Wednesday to edge Florida 11-9.
Staff ace Max Fried takes the mound Friday for Atlanta. Fried has won his last three decisions and stands 10-7 with a 3.78 earned run average. Overall, the Braves rank middle of the NL pack in bullpen and staff ERA. Though, Baltimore shouldn’t pose much offensive issue for a peaking Atlanta group.
The Orioles have lost 14 straight and resume their title as the easiest major league club to bet against. Facing a red-hot Atlanta lineup, and Max Fried, only pours the easy money on Baltimore’s latest visitor.
Formal statistics show the Orioles allow an MLB worst 5.87 runs per, while returning just 4.03 scores. Baltimore pitching is also ranked last among all clubs.
The Orioles suffered another loss Wednesday as Tampa Bay took the 8-4 win.
Rookie LHP Keegan Akin takes the bump Friday for Baltimore. A former 2nd round draft choice, Akin has failed to impress during his early MLB life. This season Akin offers an 0-7 record and bloated 8.13 ERA.
The Orioles are 1-16 in 2021 when Akin appears.
