Predictions:

The key to this game will likely be the pitching matchup, with Spencer Schwellenbach (0-2, 6.32 ERA) starting for the Braves and Casey Mize (1-4, 4.43 ERA) for the Tigers. Schwellenbach has struggled this season, while Mize has had mixed results. Given the Detroit Tigers’ recent issues against right-handed pitching, don’t expect a high-scoring game. A reasonable prediction is for the Braves to edge out the Tigers in a low-scoring affair, possibly 4-2.

More:

Offensively, the Braves have been led by Marcell Ozuna, who has 84 hits, including 20 home runs and 62 RBIs. Ronald Acuna Jr.‘s absence due to a torn ACL impacts the lineup, but other players like Ozzie Albies and Matt Olson have stepped up.

The Detroit Tigers will rely on Riley Greene, their team leader with 67 hits, 14 home runs, and 37 RBIs, to spark their offense. Moreover, they have interesting contributors in Matt Vierling and Mark Canha, who have shown potential this season.

With both teams having streaks and skids leading into this matchup, it will be essential to see which squad establishes control early on and builds momentum throughout the game.
