Weigh in and make your predictions now!

Dodgers’ dominance in three straight wins

The Atlanta Braves won the National League pennant after defeating the Dodgers four games to two. Despite that defeat, the Braves did not go away. They went 4-3 against winning teams and were close to a 5-2 record. This season, the Dodgers are poised for a big comeback and have acquired several players from trades. With these additions, they have added power to their lineup and have won three of four games.

The Dodgers have a chance to close out the series on Monday night at Chavez Ravine. They’ll send Ricky Nolasco to the mound and try to even the series at one game apiece. Atlanta’s starter, Freddy Garcia, is a 37-year-old journeyman. The Dodgers should get an advantage in runs because they have been dominant against the Braves’ ace, Max Fried.

In the series, the Dodgers have outscored the Braves forty-one times in three straight games. Last season, the Dodgers won four straight games, but the Braves caught up to them in the playoffs. In 1991, they went 55-28 after the All-Star break and defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in the NLCS. In 1993, the Braves lost the World Series to the Minnesota Twins, allowing the Dodgers to move ahead in the NL West.

The game against the Braves continued with dramatic moments. First, Puig singled with one out. Then, he charged to third on a Juan Uribe single to center field. Then, Skip Schumaker hit a fly ball to Heyward and the Dodgers were 2-0. In the fifth inning, A.J. Ellis dropped a two-out double into left field. Outfielder Evan Gattis made a misguided dive to catch the ball.

Braves’ struggles against southpaws

The Atlanta Braves haven’t had much luck facing southpaw starting pitchers this season. However, they did score five runs in the first inning against Jon Lester, and they are poised to make the most of it. Their struggles against southpaws aren’t new – they’ve been going through this in recent years. Despite that, the Braves are a team that needs to improve against southpaws to have a good playoff run.

One reason for their struggles against southpaws is the fact that their top-ranked left-handers are not as good as their right-handers. That’s why Atlanta outfielders have a minus-8 OAA. Outfielder Adam Duvall has been the Braves’ most reliable defensive outfielder, and he’s been the team’s best player on defense. On Tuesday, he hit a two-home run to highlight Atlanta’s 11th straight victory over the Pirates.

The Braves’ struggles against southpaws are not limited to pitchers. Several Braves players have been 0-for-6 this year against southpaws. The Dodgers have a better record against southpaws, with Matt Kemp being the best. However, Andres Torres is expected to miss the entire series because of a mild strain of his left Achilles. As such, the Braves have to get more out of their left-handed pitchers if they want to win this series.

The Atlanta Braves started the season 6-8 in 2015, and after losing eight games in 2003 and 2002, they won the World Series. In 2002 and 2003, they had two ace-level starters in Freddie Freeman and Julio Teheran. Both pitchers were dominant against right-handed batters, but Teheran struggled against southpaws. Freddie Freeman’s power was devastating to Charlie Morton.

Matt Olson’s 10 home runs

In a season that was marred by a disappointing lack of home runs, Matt Olson’s breakout season may seem like a fluke. Olson, who was acquired from the Indians in exchange for Josh Hamilton during the offseason, has hit right-handed pitchers nearly as well as left-handed ones. He has hit more home runs against lefties, which has helped his strikeout rate decline significantly, and he should be a top contender for the MVP award. His 10 home runs against the Dodgers are a sign of an outstanding season, and his statistics suggest he will continue this trend.

While Olson has a disappointing start to the season, he is on pace to hit 65 doubles and a whopping 112 walks. One of those doubles could become a home run, and Olson could go on a Herculean tear. He also has a 0.8 fWAR rating. It will be interesting to see how Olson performs during the remainder of the season.

Matt Olson’s career-high 10 home runs against the Dodgers are impressive and prove that Olson can play first base for a team of any size. After all, the Dodgers have been a tough outing for first basemen, so he is a valuable addition for the Atlanta Braves. His 10 home runs against the Dodgers are among the most impressive in baseball.

A recent stretch in which Olson launched back-to-back home runs against Zack Wheeler has him on a tear. His recent stretch has seen Olson go hitless in his previous two games, but he remained near career-high levels at the plate. His three-for-three performance against the Cubs has raised his batting average to.251. He has 42 RBI in 75 games and is on pace to make the Atlanta Braves proud.

Jon Gray’s 2.64 ERA in five starts

After missing his first start of the season with an abdominal injury, Colorado Rockies pitcher Jon Gray is cleared to make his major league debut this Friday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 MLB draft, Gray emerged as the top young arm in the Rockies organization. Last season, Gray made nine starts and went 2-3 with a 5.56 ERA and 1.62 WHIP. This season, however, he’s improved to a 2.64 ERA in five starts against the Dodgers.

In his last start against the Diamondbacks, Gray held the hitters scoreless for six innings while striking out five. His performance was a bit disappointing, however, given his career numbers at Dodger Stadium: 6.84 ERA and 1.785 WHIP in six starts. Gray will need better luck against Corey Seager in this series, who has a 13-home-run and four triples against the Rockies.

Despite Gray’s improved numbers, Gray’s struggles in the first inning in Game 5 against the Astros may have been his most challenging start of the year. Earlier in the season, he had gone four starts without allowing more than two home runs. But Gray has yet to string together a two-inning start. In his last five starts against the Dodgers, Gray has a 5.28 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 47:19 K:BB through 46 innings.

A few weeks ago, Gray escaped the dreary Colorado air and carried the fantasy buzz into the 2022 season. His 5.56 ERA until May, however, was a bit disappointing. However, he’s since gotten back on track, posting a 2.64 ERA in five starts and a WHIP of 1.01 in that span. Additionally, he’s posted a career-best 10.6 K/9 in his last five starts.

Atlanta Braves’ relief pitching

The Atlanta Braves’ relief pitching has been a concern lately. After giving up a game-tying HR with two outs in the ninth inning, Luke Jackson and AJ Minter each failed to record an out in the tenth inning. The second-half collapse was especially disappointing, as both relievers gave up two runs and were pulled from the game. AJ Minter is likely to replace Jackson, and Chris Martin should provide adequate relief for the team in the meantime.

The team’s relief pitchers have earned the nickname “The Night Shift” due to their late-night work schedule. While the regular rotation has plenty of pitchers to choose from, the Braves have a lot of relief options. The team used five relief pitchers in Game 4 and two-hit pitching in the final four innings. That’s more than double what the average team uses in its bullpen, so relief pitching is the key to a successful playoff run.

The Atlanta Braves’ relief pitching has a few issues, but the team has the luxury of acquiring quality relievers at a reasonable price. The team has multiple options, but their closer is probably the most important. Luis Avilan and Jason Grilli are considered the top options, while Jonny Gomes and Jim Johnson will fill the other spots in the bullpen. Depending on how they pitch, the Atlanta Braves might look at two relievers to make up their relief staff.

While the starters accounted for the vast majority of innings pitched, Atlanta Braves relied heavily on their relief pitching last year. In fact, the Braves’ bullpen was responsible for about 40% of the team’s innings during the regular season. After Will Smith, he was followed by Jonny Venters, and finally, by Eric O’Flaherty. But with all these options, the team is unlikely to get any closer to winning the World Series than they did last year. More
