Pushed last night with the Dodgers/Rockies over at 10. The Rockies scored just by themselves and the new look Dodgers couldn't even score one little run. *SIGH* Oh well....some people say a push is a win bcause you didn't lose.
Tonight I must go with probably one of the hottest pitchers right now....Kris Medlen. I am taking the Atlanta Braves tonight because they bring Kris Medlen to the mound and the kid has been untouchable. Since becoming a starter this season, in all the games he has started, he has NEVER given up more than 1 run!!! He's only given up more than 1 walk only ONCE in his starts. The dude can flat out pitch. Let me educate you on the season he is having. These are Medlen's stats....he is 5-1 with a microscopic 1.86 ERA....65Ks to only 18BB in 87 innings. Medlen has been dynamite for the Braves. Not to mention he is pitching at a pitcher friendly park tonight in San Diego. (Petco Park) I fully expect the Braves offense to get going tonight with the lighting fast Michael Bourn leading off. The Braves lineup is stacked and they should be scoring a lot more runs than they should be. Especially with the likes of Prado, McCann, Heyward, Freeman and Uggla. Oh and I also forgot the ageless one Chipper Jones! One the Braves get the lead late into the game and when they get to Craig Kimbrel, its light ou time. Probably considered one of the best closers in the game right now. The Padres have been on a winning streak but it stops tonight. They've been playing a bit over their heads and the last time they played Atlanta they couldnt score runs at all. Atlanta took 3 games out of 4 and the Braves outscored the Padres 19-5 in a 4 game series!!! Take Medlen and the Braves tonight and thank me tomorrow morning.
