Free MLB Pick
Alex Wood gave up 4 earned runs in 6 innings in his last start, which was a 9-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Tonight is his first career start in Colorado and they Braves have won 2 in a row and 3 of their last 4 when he Wood has gotten the start. The Braves are 1-4 in Wood’s last 5 starts as a road favorite. In Kyle Kendrick’s last start he gave up 3 earned runs in 5 innings in a 4-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Colorado has lost 2 straight and 6 of their last 7 games when Kendrick has gotten the starting nod. Among qualified starters he has given up the most HR in the Majors and the Rockies are 3-13 in his last 16 starts.
I think the Braves’ bats will get to Kendrick tonight and the Braves will take the first game of this series.
