Atlanta avoided a season opening sweep in a big way on Sunday, beating the Mets 14-1 as the Braves’ offense seems to finally have come to life.
Atlanta does face a tough test on Monday vs. one of the most underrated pitching staffs in baseball for the Tampa Bay Rays. Tampa Bay comes in on a 2-game win streak after dropping their season opener to Toronto.
Did Atlanta save any offense after yesterday’s 14-1 beating? The Braves only scraped out 1-hit in the season opener vs. Jacob deGrom but made up for that with 17 base knocks on Sunday.
Three Braves batters had 3-hits vs. the Mets on Sunday as Ozzie Albies, Dansby Swanson, and William Contreras combined to go 9 for 16.
Atlanta turns to Mike Foltynewicz in the 4-spot in their rotation. The right-hander will give up some runs as his 4.54 ERA in 2019 was the 5th time in six seasons above 4.30.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays didn’t get the sweep of Toronto but they rebounded nicely from the 6-4 loss on opening day to counter with 4-1 and 6-5 victories over the weekend.
Tampa Bay is likely going to be involved in a lot of low scoring games this season and they hit just two HRs as a team vs. the Blue Jays. Brandon Lowe is off to a nice start though going 5-11 (.455).
It’s a sign of the Rays pitching depth that Tyler Glasnow gets the ball as the 4th starter after going 6-1 with a 1.78 ERA a season ago. He suffered a mild forearm strain last season but returned for four starts in September.
