The Atlanta Braves and San Diego Padres meet on Sunday at MLB games at Petco Park.
The Atlanta Braves want to stay in shape after winning six of their last seven games. The Braves have scored 16 points in their last three games and at least four points in 11 of their last 13 games. The Atlanta Braves have won eight of their last 11 games scoring four points or more. Freddie Freeman leads the Braves with 110 hits and 68 RBIs while Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies combined 212 shots and 105 shots. Mike Soroka receives the ball and is 9-1 with a 2.42 silver and 73 strikeouts this season. This will be Soroka's second career match against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 13 points in their last three games and three points or less in six of their last 10 games. The San Diego Padres have lost six of their last nine games scoring three points or less. Eric Hosmer led the Padres with 101 hits and 63 RBIs while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes combined their total for 163 hits and 101 RBIs. Cal Quantrill receives the ball, and he is 2-2 with a total of 4.83 and 36 strikeouts this season. This will be Quantrill's second career game against the Braves.
The Braves are 36-16 in their last 52 games on Sunday, 49-22 in a last game of 71 in the third game of a series and 15-3 in the last 18 starts of Sorokas. The Padres are 36-74 in their last 110 games on Sunday, 2-9 in their last 11 in the third game of a series and 0-4 in the last 4 home starts of Quantrills. The Braves are 7-19 in the last 26 meetings in San Diego and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The back is 6-0 in the last 6 starts of Quantrills. The score is 5-1-1 at Sorokas last 7 starts in total.
Soroka has been at his best on the road this season thanks to 49 innings, since he's got an average of points equal to 1.29 and a batting average of .171. The Braves have also won seven straight wins with Soroka on the mound, not losing a game since May 25. Quantrill has allowed 20 hits and 10 earned runs in his last 20 innings. The Padres also continue to find difficult ways to lose, while the Braves are gaining confidence from the sleeve and have a fault that continues to produce consistently. I must continue to support the Braves.
