Max Fried (6-3, 3.11 ERA) vs. Lance Lynn (2-3, 4.08 ERA)


Max Fried, starting pitcher for the Braves, boasts an impressive record with a 6-3 win-loss mark and 3.11 ERA across 84 innings pitched this year, maintaining his low 1.07 WHIP index number for effective management of on-base players. Incorporating his control and precision – as evidenced by 76 strikeouts to just 27 walks this season – into this contest will likely play an essential part in holding back Cardinal hitters at Busch Stadium. Fried also only allowed six homeruns this season – an indicator of his capability of keeping home runs contained at Busch Stadium.


Lance Lynn of the Cardinals presents more of a challenge with his 2-3 record and 4.08 ERA, coupled with his 1.43 WHIP over 75 innings which saw 77 hits over that span and his tendency for more baserunners than strikeouts; with 73 strikeouts against 30 walks Lynn shows decent strikeout capabilities but will need to tighten his game significantly against Atlanta’s powerful lineup; therefore his performance during this game will ultimately determine their defensive strength.
