The Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves are the only two teams in the majors that made the 2021 postseason with better records on the road than at home, and the Braves will look to keep that success going in Milwaukee on Saturday.
Braves starter Max Fried enters having allowed three earned runs or fewer in 12 straight starts, and the team is 10-1 in his 11 starts since the start of August.
Brandon Woodruff comes in after having opponents hit .262 off of him in his four starts in September. The Brewers lost all four of those games, and his 4.09 ERA in September is the worst mark he had for a month this season.
The Brewers are just 4-10 in Woodruff’s 14 starts since the beginning of July, and entering the series, Milwaukee’s bullpen ERA is 5.24 the past 30 days, which ranks 25th in the majors in that span.
The Braves rank third overall in MLB in home runs per game with 1.5 and their bullpen is fourth in the league in ERA since the All-Star break at 3.24, so Atlanta will steal Game 2 on the road.
The play: Braves, +105.
