Atlanta Braves (70-59) vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (82-49) at 9:11 PM CT. Atlanta Braves are sending (Starting Left-handed Pitcher) Drew Smyly. Already over the 100 strikeout mark look for Smyly to continue building in that category. A great arsenal and the ability to pitch deep in ball games is why Smyly caught my eye tonight.
The LA Dodgers are fourth-worst in the MLB at striking out over the last 3 games. Six-batters on the Dodgers have failed to hit off Smyly. Smyly will be looking to dominate on the mound tonight as we inch closer to the playoffs.
