A Look at the LA Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves Game Preview, MLB Odds & TV InfoDate/Time: Tuesday, July 21, 5:10 PM Venue: Turner Field, Atlanta, Georgia TV: SportsNet LA, SNLA Spanish Radio: Braves Radio Network, 570 LA Sport Opening MLB Odds: LA Dodgers -131 It’s tough to say what the Dodgers (53-40) might do at the deadline, as they appear to be in very good shape with a 3.5 game lead atop the NL West. This is a team with money to burn, though, so they might just swing a couple of deals in order to put themselves over the top. The Dodgers are going well right now, and are a healthy 7-3 in their last 10 games. No-one is hotter than Zack Greinke right now, as he has now gone 6 straight games without giving up a single run. His ERA is now down to 1.30, and you would have to say that he would be a shoe-in for the Cy Young if he season were to end today. The good news for the Braves is that they will not have to face Greinke in this series. Brett Anderson (5-5, 3.17 ERA) will get the start on Tuesday night. The Dodgers have won 4 of the last 5 games that Anderson has started. The Atlanta Braves (43-49) are one team that are likely to fold and look to next season once the trade deadline rolls around. This is not really much of a surprise, as this was a team that was admittedly in a rebuilding phase this season. They were competitive in the NL East for much of the first half, but injuries have pretty much killed any chance they may have had at landing a postseason spot. The Braves started their second half by losing 2of 3 to the Chicago Cuba, and once again, they had some real difficulty in scoring runs. Alex Wood (6-6, 3.76 ERA) will take to the mound for the Braves and will be looking to bounce back after a rough last outing.
