Game Preview

In the first game of a vital National League set at Truist Park, the Atlanta Braves welcome the Arizona Diamondbacks. Although the Braves continue to be edging out the opposition in the NL East, the Diamondbacks are still right in the heart of the action in the NL West. Since the series is moving to Atlanta, the Braves will be aiming to repeat their road-trip sweep of the first meeting involving both of these teams.
At the start of June, the Braves defeated the Diamondbacks in 2 of the 3 games. The Diamondbacks had a difficult time at the plate during the aforementioned set. In 3 matches, they only managed to hit .215 and score 10 runs. Arizona produced 4 separate plays with 3 hits, yet they were unable to generate any momentum. In the contest, homers were hit by Evan Longoria, Ketel Marte, and Corbin Carroll. In the 3-game set, the Diamondbacks posted a 4.67 ERA and 1.63 WHIP. Merill Kelly and Zac Gallen both had quality starts.
When Bryce Elder hits the mound for the Braves on Tuesday evening, they will have the advantage of relying on one of the sport’s top pitchers. The right-hander has been outstanding throughout the year, and the Diamondbacks are unlikely to be delighted to have him pitch opposing them considering his 7-2 record and 2.97 ERA.


In the series against Arizona, Atlanta’s bats performed far better. They had five home runs and a .305 average. 3 of the homers were hit by Eddie Rosario, who finished the set with 6 hits overall. Additionally, Ronald Acuna Jr. recorded 3 hits and 1 home run. The Braves’ pitching staff posted an ERA of 3.46 and a WHIP of 1.27. They walked 28 times. Charlie Morton and Spencer Strider both had quality starts.
Establishing the mood for the set may be more challenging because the Diamondbacks will be handing the ball off to Zach Davies in this game. The right-hander enters this contest with a 1-5 record and a 6.37 ERA. Both figures show him among Arizona’s weaker spots, which might be problematic when facing one of baseball’s top offenses.
