Sanchez pitched a gem in his last start putting in a quality start, but unfortunately came away with a no-decision agains the Washington Nationals. He went seven innings giving up just two hits and two unearned runs while striking out five and walking one.
Sanchez has been on the right path thus far posting a shiny 2.16 ERA, but a closer look at his numbers will tell you he has been very fortunate as his FIP is sitting at 4.84. He owns a very lucky .212 BABIP and 89.7% LOB%, both of which are bound to regress towards the norm, and when they do we should see his ERA fall more towards his FIP.
Atlanta has been playing mediocre baseball in the last week as they have won three of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .236/.294/.414 to go with 23 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Wood was rocked in his last outing against division rival the Colorado Rockies. The lefty could only make it two innings giving up five hits, six earned runs, and one home runs while striking out two and walking three.
On the season Wood has a solid strikeout (8.39 K/9) to walk (1.82 BB/9), and has even done an okay job limiting the home runs with a 1.12 HR/9. His problem has been stemming from not being able to induce ground balls as much as he’d want to and this current inability to get easier outs mixed with porous defense has left him with a 62.1% LOB% and 4.48 ERA, but has a 3.52 FIP.
Los Angeles has been playing their best baseball of the season while they have won five of the last six contests in the past week. During that time their lineup is slashing .295/.372/.608 to go with an absurd 32 extra-base hits and 51 RBI.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction: Los Angeles edges out Atlanta at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 8 Runs
Atlanta has had great success against lefties this year owning a .789 OPS as compared to a .746 OPS against righties. Los Angeles has been slugging the ball like crazy, and although Sanchez has been solid thus far, I expect Los Angele’s lineup to have their way with him on the road. Look for runs to be scored in this outing from the get-go.
