With the bases loaded and the Braves behind 4-3 in the bottom of the 11th inning, Matt Olson’s double knotted the score and Travis D’Arnaud’s walk-off pinch-hit single gave Atlanta the victory.

In his most recent start, Morton defeated New York 5-0 by allowing only 3 hits and no runs across 6.2 innings. He must put out a comparable effort if they are to triumph.

Houston Astros vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game is the Atlanta Braves. Although the Astros are doing well, they had trouble on the road recently, losing 5 of their last 7 road contests.


Despite their strong offensive output, they will struggle in this game since Morton pitched well at home recently and did not allow a run in three consecutive starts.
