The Braves are a good team but their depth is challenged right now as they are playing without their best starting pitcher and their third best best hitter. How well they plug those holes is going to be critical.
Ronald Acuna Jr. may lead the team on homers with four but he has not been very dynamic this season. There have not been many games where it appears he is going to leap through the screen.
It is not a huge thing but I wonder how not having Ozzie Albies behind him is going to make a difference. Albies is not at his level power wise but is a very good hitter.
Pitching depth is going to be a concern the rest of the way for Atlanta. Ace Mike Soroka is out, they thought they were going to get more from Felix Hernandez but he is hurt, and Cole Hamels is not available til September.
There is no starter listed for this one and that has to be a little concerning, especially in the Bronx against a strong Yankees lineup.
Atlanta is a good team but they might not look like it in this one.
New York Yankees
The Yankees were really cruising along until a recent series against Tampa. They gave some back to the Rays to let them in the race in the AL East.
The Yankees offense has been good, led by Aaron Judge and is eight homers. DJ LeMahieu is also hitting close to .400 and that helps given that Gleyber Torres has really struggled this season.
Masahiro Tanaka has looked pretty good so far but with every season he is more of a five inning pitcher. The Yankees have the bullpen to back him up but Aroldis Chapman is out.
Zach Britton saved a ton of games for Baltimore and slides into that 9th inning spot with ease. That what money buys you, lots of depth.

Tanaka is going to keep the Braves at bay while he is in there. He won’t be perfect but he will avoid the big blow so they can comfortable win.
