The Braves are coming off a hard fought series against the Cardinals, playing spoiler in yesterday’s win, 6-3. Atlanta knows their season is over again early this year. Currently sitting at nine games under .500 and 17.5 games back of the Nationals in the NL East.
Julio Terhan (7-10, 5.25 ERA) has been terrible this season. He has yet to face Colorado this year. Despite his terrible season, Terhan has been solid in road starts. He is 6-2 in 11 road starts this year, carrying a 3.57 road ERA, much better than at home where he is 1-8 with a 7.07 ERA.
The Rockies are a solid team, but not good enough to get past the wildcard or first round of the playoffs. Losing three straight games at Miami over the weekend, does not indicate the Rockies are ready for a deep playoff run. Giancarlo Stanton terrorized the Rockies pitching staff with three homers in three straight games against them.
Chad Bettis has not made a start this season. He is returning for the DL getting over his battle with testicular cancer. Bettis has overcome the cancer and started rehabbing with the team on July 13th. He is 0-3 with a 4.24 ERA in six rehab starts this year.

With Bettis not pitching a major league inning this year, its had not to go with the Braves. Yes, Terhan has been bad this season, but as mentioned earlier, he is better on the road. I’ll take my chances with Atlanta in today’s game.
