The Braves and Dodgers meet on Friday night for the first of a three game set at Dodger Stadium. On the mound will be the two aces of each staff. The league’s best pitcher Clayton Kershaw will be going for the Dodgers while the Braves will sent out Julio Teheran.
The Braves won two of three games against the Dodgers in mid-April earlier this season.
In Teheran’s lone matchup against the Dodgers (April 20) he gave up two runs in 5.1 innings earning the loss. Kershaw earned a no decision against the Braves on April 21st allowing one run in eight innings.
The Braves have gotten going a bit as they’ve won four of their last six games against respectable opponents. Atlanta’s pitching has been marvelous in the run as they’ve allowed 22 runs in the six games.
Atlanta’s best hitter is Freddie Freeman but he is only hitting .251 with nine homers. Freeman hit a walk-off homer in the 11th inning to beat the Giants 5-4.
As a team the Braves only have 22 home runs on the season which ranks dead last in the majors. Atlanta is tied for 29th in runs with only 166.
Teheran is 1-2 with a 2.20 ERA in four road starts this season.
On the season the Braves are 2-9 in Teheran’s 11 starts.
Los Angeles Dodgers
On Wednesday night the Dodgers lost 2-1 to the Chicago Cubs. Mike Bolsinger had a terrific start in the loss giving up two hits and two runs in five innings.
Unfortunately the Dodgers bats didn’t deliver as they only had four hits off Jon Lester who pitched a complete game for Chicago.
Enrique Hernadez’ solo shot in the first inning was the Dodgers only run of the game.
Yasiel Puig must get going for the Dodgers, he is only hitting .238 with five homers on the year.
Kershaw is 5-1 with a 1.47 ERA in six home starts this season.
On the season the Dodgers are 10-1 in Kershaw’s 11 starts this year.
