For an Atlanta Braves team that won both of their doubleheader games recently, it’s time to cheer and enjoy life. The season has been a little rough, but hey things might be looking up now.
Well not quite anymore as the Braves head over to Chicago to face the Cubs who swept the Pirates.
Foltynewicz will look to break his bad streak of starts as his last three outings gave him zero wins and an 9.64 ERA average.
The defending World Series Champs have really picked up steam in the second half as they are 3.5 games up on the Brewers and had a statement victory against the Pirates.
How was it a statement victory you may ask? Well scoring 17 runs might do the trick. Chicago is swinging as hot of a bat as any right now, and that’s not good for Atlanta
John Lackey will look to be better than his average self on Friday as he hopes to beat the Braves once again.
