On Friday, we head to Atlanta for a matchup between National League East rivals, the Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves.

Coming into today Charlie Morton is 17-8 to the NRFI with an 11-2 home NRFI split. When facing teams’ leadoff hitters Charlie Morton has shown great dominance he’s only allowed 11 hits in 63 at bats, good for a .175 average. When facing hitters the first time through the order, he’s also shown success allowing a .200 average.

Here is how Morton has done in the past against these Marlins hitters:

  • Jon Berti: 2-for-8
  • Miguel Rojas: 4-for-19
  • Garrett Cooper: 0-for-2
  • Brian Anderson: 3-for-8

Holding the Marlins’ projected top of the lineup to 9-for-37.

The Marlins will counter with Sandy Alcantara, who has been outstanding in first innings this year. Coming into today, Alcantara is 21-5 to the NRFI with a 10-2 road NRFI split.

When facing hitters the first time through the order, like Morton, Alcantara has also displayed great dominance. He has only allowed 37 hits in 215 at-bats that’s good for a .172 average.

Here is how Alcantara has matched up in the past against these Braves hitters:

  • Ronald Acuña Jr: 5-for-19
  • Dansby Swanson: 6-for-20
  • Austin Riley: 2-for-18
  • Matt Olson: 0-for-7

Holding the Braves’ projected top of the order to 13-for-64.

The Marlins are one of the best teams to pick when playing a NRFI. They are currently riding a 9-1 NRFI streak. They also are hitting the NRFI on the road 88% of the time.

The Braves despite being one of the better offenses are currently riding an 8-1 NRFI streak. Bet on these two pitchers to pick up another NRFI win today.

As always six outs to glory.
