After a critic-defying first half where Atlanta defended their NL East throne, the Braves look to begin post-All Star play in style vs. the San Diego Padres. This season the Braves are 2-2 against the fathers. However, those games occurred during an April set where Atlanta was still finding its zen.
Now fully charged, tonight Atlanta sends Dallas Keuchel to the mound. Keuchel (2-2, 3.60 ERA) is looking for a third win in four starts following his July 4 victory, 4-3, over stubborn Miami. On Independence Day Keuchel worked seven innings giving up five hits and two runs while capping a dog fight series vs. the fish that Atlanta edged 2-1.
Expect another extended appearance today from Keuchel as manager Brian Snitker gives his newest rotation cog valuable reps to prepare for the postseason run.
Led by positional All Stars Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuna Jr., and featuring a glut of quality bats, Atlanta threatens with power and accuracy. This season, the Braves have added another layer to a division champion club from 2018.
That stated, Atlanta enters tonight’s contest as a healthy favorite.
San Diego Padres
Following a quality start, San Diego fell back a bit and has flirted with .500 since. Although, three consecutive wins over juggernaut LAD heading into the All Star break gives the Pods elevated second half momentum.
The fathers will test the waters tonight with Atlanta and learn if their recent success is granite.
Returning Dinelson Lamet takes the mound this evening for San Diego. Lamet (0-1, 5.40 ERA) recoded seven strikeouts and held the Dodgers to three hits through seven innings during a recent 5-1 loss. Though Lamet gave up three runs and took the L vs. LAD, his first performance since 2017 (Tommy John’s surgery) was mainly positive.
San Diego will need another strong Dinelson performance to carry its subpar #21-ranked offense.
Averaging just 4.47 runs per game, the Padres could use fence-clearing power tonight from home run dealers Hunter Renfroe (27 HR), Franmil Reyes (25 HR) and Manny Machado (20 HR).
If these three, along with offensive leader Fernando Tatis (.327 BA) find rhythm vs. Keuchel, San Diego’s victory odds suddenly rise.
