Atlanta Braves vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, last game of the series, the home team must win this game to win the series, the first game with Anibal Sanchez was a defeat, but the second game was another story and he finished 5-3 for the home team. The Pirates also have a chance to win the series with today’s game, but the Braves have Julio Teheran in the mound.
Atlanta Braves: This series belongs to us.
The Braves at home do not have the best record, but at least the record is not negative and has remained at 36 wins and 31 losses, 53.7% effective. This series against the Pirates was heavy during the first game because the Braves already had two games, one against the Cubs and against the Rays. In the second game came the relief for the team and the record at home, but despite everything the Braves have only 3 wins in the last 10 games at home, were swept by the Rockies in a long series of 4 games.
Julio Teheran is the key player for this last game, with 9 wins and 7 losses, Tehran is the best tool that the Braves can use against the Pirates. In the last 5 games at home Teheran has a record of 3 wins and 2 losses, against the Rays in the last 10 games at home. Teheran was one of those who helped with that 9-5 victory. The Braves at home are scoring 4.85 runs per game, 8.70 hits, 0.97 homeruns.
Pittsburgh Pirates: Our problems are serious.
The Pirates are suffering on the road, 31 wins and 36 defeats, a negative record with 46.3% effectiveness.
