The Atlanta Braves look to maintain the Miami Marlins in the losing path when they meet this Wednesday at 12:10 PM ET at the Turner Field, in the third of a three game series.
The Braves are 13-6 this season and lead the National League East division; when playing at home Atlanta is 5-2 this season.
Right hander Aaron Harang has been pitching tremendously with a 3-1 record in four starts and a 0.70. In his last outing against the New York Mets, veteran Harang didn’t allow a hit and had 5 strikeouts while winning the game 6-0.
“If I’m through eight, I’m going back out. “I know it’s probably the hardest decision he’s ever going to have to make,” Harang said about his manager pulling him out. “He reiterated multiple times, ‘Man, I hate doing that.’ ”
The Marlins are 9-11 in the season and is yet to win a game away from home. They have lost all seven matchups as visitors this year.
Miami will put right-hander Nate Eovaldi as the starter, who is 1-1 on his record after four starts. He has a 3.55 ERA on the year.
Consider Miami is 5-25 against the money line in road games in April games over the last 3 seasons and 33-76 against the money line in road games after a loss over the last 3 seasons. Atlanta is 62-28 against the money line in home games over the last 2 seasons.
