The Atlanta Braves are starting to get hot and are clearly contenders in the NL East and they will look to pick up an important series this Wednesday as they take on the Miami Marlins at loanDepot Park in Miami.
Braves fans now have a real reason to get excited, as this team is now on an 11-2 run and they are now leading the NL East with a 1.5 game cushion above the Philadelphia Phillies. It looked like this Braves season might go down with Ronald Acuna Jr., but they are proving that they have plenty of depth in this batting lineup and it now looks like the sky is the limit for this emerging side.
Freedie Freeman and Ozzie Albies are doing a lot of the heavy lifting in this batting lineup as Freeman now has a .294 average and Albies also has 83 RBI, so it does become interesting to think just how potent this lineup would be with Acuna in it.
Charlie Morton will go to the hill here and that should give this team plenty of confidence, as he comes into this matchup with a 3.49 ERA and an 11-4 record and against this Marlins lineup he should have a lot of success as this represents an A+ matchup for him.
The Marlins 4 game winning streak was snapped by this Atlanta Braves side in a game that finished 12-2, so the Marlins will be out for a bit of revenge here and they do have the talent to get the job done here.
Miami does not have the best batting lineup, but they do have guys like Adam Duvall and Jesus Aguilar who have been getting the job done all year long, so they will be the main guys to look out for if the Marlins are able to get this victory.
This Marlins team has relied on their pitching all year long, but they likely won’t be able to do that here sending Jesus Luzardo to the mound who now has a brutal 7.52 ERA and he was not exactly impressive in his first start with Miami.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
This is a major fade of Luzardo who I have no trust in at this point, and the fact that he is going up against this Braves offense here is not helping things. Morton should be able to go deep into this game and provide a quality start and that should put the Braves in a position to win this game in a big way.
