Today's matchup is between the Atlanta Braves (40-25) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (48-17).

For the Braves, Max Fried (LHP) will take the mound who is 7-0 this season pitching a 2.25 ERA, a 3.10 FIP, a .272 wOBA, a K% of 22.3, a BB% of 8.5, a 83.4 mph average exit veloicty, and a 1.09 whip on 56.0 innings pitched.

For the Dodgers, Walker Buehler (RHP) will take the mound who is 1-0 this season pitching a 3.44 ERA, a 4.36 FIP, a .257 wOBA, a K% of 28.6, a BB% of 7.5, a 90.0 mph average exit veloicty, and a 0.95 whip on 36.2 innings pitched.

The Braves are the 4th best team in the Majors for Relieving Pitching, while the Dodgers are 2nd.

On the hitting side the Braves have a .349 wOBA, a .345 OBP, and 103 home runs. The Dodgers have a .344 wOBA, a .335 OBP, and 118 home runs.

Whover wins this series is likely to win the World Series in my eyes (and probably many others). The Braves have the slight edge here with Max Fried on the mound. The Dodgers don't perform as well against LHP's as they are 2nd in wOBA against RHP's & 8th in wOBA against LHP's. On the other hand, the Braves at bat are 1st in wOBA against RHP's and Walker Buehler isn't going to be an exception to this statistic. These teams matchup well and almost cancel each other out in batting and relief pitching, but the Braves should take this one off the strength of Max Fried and their batting.
