Fargo's 10* MLB Sunday Sweet Spot (95-68 MLB Run)
2018-08-19 13:35:00

This is a play on the ATLANTA BRAVES for our MLB Sunday Sweet Spot. We are going back to the well one more time with the Braves after a brutal loss last night as they blew a 3-0 lead in the ninth inning with two outs and nobody on before eventually losing in extra innings. Atlanta ha dropped the first three games of this series and last night was the second time in the first three games that it has allowed three ninth-inning runs to eventually lose. The Braves are still a half-game up on the Phillies in the National League East thanks to another gem from Jacob deGrom in his win over Philadelphia yesterday. The Rockies have been one of the hottest teams in baseball over the last couple months and they can take the lead in the National League West with a win and an Arizona loss, but we do not see either happening today. German Marquez takes the hill for Colorado and while he has had his struggles at home, he has been solid on the road with a 2.92 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 12 starts but this is not a good spot. He allowed seven runs against Atlanta in his first start against the Braves this season and on the year, he has allowed 20 home runs, which is tied for tenth most in the National League, and the Braves are 11-3 after two straight games with no home runs this season. Anibal Sanchez has to be at the top of the list for most surprising pitcher as he has a 3.07 ERA through 16 starts after posting a 5.67 ERA over the last three years covering 415.2 innings. The Braves are 6-0 in his last 6 starts when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game. 10* (908) Atlanta Braves
