Leading the NL East by six games, Atlanta visits Miami tonight after a 12-7 Tuesday win vs. Minnesota. The Braves battered the AL Central’s best as Ronald Acuna and Fred Freeman drove in six combined runs. Meanwhile, former All Star Brian McCann added three RBI’s in a vintage performance.
With Nick Markakis and Dansby Swanson sidelined, Atlanta needs star numbers from its star players. It’s also worth noting LF Adam Duvall, starting for an ineffective Austin Riley, whiffed four times and went 0-5 Tuesday. If Duvall (.326, 5 HR) regresses to the level which saw him spend a year in AAA before a recent call-up, Atlanta could face offensive lulls on certain nights.
The Braves are 5-3 in their last eight, and runs have generally remained low in that stretch. Although, Atlanta used the trade deadline to improve a questionable bullpen.
Atlanta is 10-2 this season vs. Miami, though half those wins, and the last four, come by one run.
Lefty Dallas Keuchel (4-5, 3.86 ERA) starts tonight as the Braves look to avoid another close call with their last-place division rival.
Keuchel earned the decision July 7 vs. Miami after tossing seven innings of two run ball. Recently Keuchel rebounded from three rough outings by holding Cincinnati in check to highlight Atlanta’s 5-4 August 3 win.
The Braves are 4-5 this season when Keuchel appears.
A curious underdog group, Miami has lost five straight and offensive leader Miguel Rojas has landed on the IR (hamstring). This season, Rojas (.289 BA) has provided value vs. Atlanta adding ten hits and a .263 avg. Now, the fish are down an important piece in a tight-yet-lopsided series against a Braves group improved at the mound.
If the Marlins gain an upset today it will be because unheralded players, and an underrated pitching staff, shock Atlanta after the Braves’ high-profile Twins series. Miami also hits a respectable .242 vs LHP, ten points higher than against RHP.
Elieser Hernandez (1-4, 5.66 ERA) opens for the Marlins tonight. Hernandez is back in the starting rotation after spending time in Miami’s bullpen, and while his record is weak, Miami is 6-7 when the hard-tossing righty starts.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
Cliche’, definitely. But it’s true when Atlanta and Miami meet records strangely become irrelevant. Yes, the Braves are 10-2 this season vs. the low-tide Fish, but a few opportune Miami bounces could’ve rendered this uber-competitive (and heartburn producing) series 7-5 in favor of the Marlins.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Braves RL
And while Atlanta will win another scrap tonight, I feel compelled to give props to the job Don Mattingly’s put in this year. Essentially, ‘Donny Baseball’ has maxed a triple A lineup into a legit MLB spoiler.
That stated, Atlanta is the one NL club that might give LAD a late-Autumn run. Side with the Braves in a tight one.
