The Braves are going for a sweep in St. Louis on Sunday. Mike Foltynewicz will be a small road favorite against Jon Gant of the Cardinals.
The 20-year-old kid from Venezuela, Ronald Acuna Jr. returned on Friday after missing a month with a leg problem. He went 0-for-4 in his return, but he made his return felt on Saturday, when he had three hits, including a homer.
Anibal Sanchez has been a garbage heap find for Atlanta. He missed over a month in May/June but whenever he takes the ball he’s looked steady and seems to have a calming, confident influence on the young Braves. It’s fun to watch him change speeds and move in and out, though he’s going to be overmatched in New York.
New York Yankees
Sabathia, Sonny Gray and Luis Severino went over the weekend against Boston so none of those three will start this game.
Of course, Jordan Montgomery is done for the year. Masahiro Tanaka isn’t available yet, though he’s close. Tanaka threw a simulated game in Tampa Bay over the weekend and will make a minor league rehab start this week.
It sure seems like Jonathan Loaisiga will be the one to take the ball. He last threw on the 25th of June, another excellent performance. He’s got an ERA under 2.00 in 14 innings this season.
In some ways, Loasiga’s emergence has taken some pressure off of New York’s front office to acquire a starting pitcher at the trade deadline, but there is still an expectation a move has to be made, given Sonny Gray’s unreliability.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: the Yankees’ offense wears out the Braves in this one.
Sanchez can’t fool New York all afternoon and Atlanta’s bullpen has struggled. I like New York to win by multiple runs.
