Soroka has been at his best this season in 49 innings, as he has a 1.29 ERA and a .171 allowed batting average. The Braves have also won Seven Straight with Soroka on the mound, and have not lost a match since 25 May. Quantrill has allowed 20 hits and 10 earned points in his last 20 innings and has a 4.98 ERA and .295 allowed batting average at home. The Padres also continue to find difficult ways to lose, while the Braves gain confidence through the inning and have an attack that continues to produce consistently. I have to keep supporting the Braves.
