Colorado Rockies vs Atlanta Braves Predictions
Key Stat: The Atlanta Braves’ should get back to winning
- The Braves need to do one last push to further pressure the Mets
- The Rockies will rely on Jose Urena (2-5) who is underperforming
- Austin Riley is a man to watch at Truist Park
The Atlanta Braves will be highly determined on Tuesday night in their return to Truist Park following some tough losses to the STL Cardinals on the road. The home side should have an easy task at first sight as they will face off the COL Rockies who don’t feel like a tough and consistent opponent. The Braves are coming on a 15-4 run after some great winning streaks in August. The team is currently 3rd in the standings with a 79-50 record sitting right behind the Mets. The Rockies have been struggling all season long defensively which led them to having the worst defensive stats in the MLB.
The team from Colorado will rely on Jose Urena (2-5) who doesn’t seem like their best choice in the starting pitcher position. He averages a 5.98 ERA and 1.67 WHIP across 14 appearances this season. Having just 31 strikeouts along the process doesn’t increase his chances of stopping the fierce offensive line of the home side. The Braves can still rely on their biggest weapon in the hitting department – Austin Riley. He leads their attack with 31 HRs in 2022 and we strongly believe that he can break Jose Urena in what promises to be a highly entertaining match on Tuesday night. We suggest that you pick him to make a home run against the Rockies.
Key Stat: Travis D’Arnaud has found his rhythm lately
- The Braves will be determined to stop their losing streak
- Travis D’Arnaud had four runs in three appearances last week
- Jose Urena has been struggling against top-seeded opponents
The Atlanta Braves will come out motivated at Truist Park on Tuesday in an attempt to get back on the winning road and further close their distance to the NY Mets. The 2021 World Series champions have set their eyes on defending their title, but they would certainly love to have a better starting point in the Playoffs. Facing off a starting pitcher like Jose Urena will certainly give them further determination as the 30-year-old pitcher has been underperforming this season.
Moreover, Travis D’Arnaud has been playing really well recently. The 33-year-old catcher went for four runs in his last four appearances. Having in mind that three of these games were against the top-performing STL Cardinals, we think that we can trust him against the struggling Rockies. Earlier in the season, D’Arnaud has scored three runs in a 13-6 win over the Rockies which is yet another reason to pick him on Tuesday.
