Atlanta Braves (16-37) at L.A. Dodgers (28-27) 10:10 PM ET

Dodger Stadium
TV: FSSO, SportsNet LA, SNLA Spanish
Radio: WYAY 106.7, 680 AM/93.7 FM, KMPC 1540, KTQN 1020, 570 LA Sports
MLB Odds: LA Dodgers -210

Probable Starters

Atlanta – Julio Terehan – R
L.A. –Kenta Maeda – R

Friday’s series opener between the Braves and the Dodgers will feature two right-handers that have struggled to find success pitching in Dodger Stadium.

Atlanta’s, Julio Teheran was on fire in the month of May, posting a jaw-dropping 0.80 ERA while limiting opposing hitters to a paltry .162 batting average. Unfortunately, Terehan suffered a blister on his right foot and was touched up for three runs in 5.1 innings in Sunday’s 7-3 loss to the Marlins. Making matters even worse is the fact that Teheran has gone a 0-4 record with a high 5.63 ERA and .298 batting against L.A.

The Dodgers will counter with Kent Maeda in this contest after the right-hander was given an extra day of rest after being struck in the right hand by a comebacker in his start against the Mets on Saturday. The rookie right-hander is just 1-3 with a 4.08 ERA at home this season.

“My hand feels good,” Maeda said through an interpreter. “It was a decision that the coaches made, to give me one more day.”

Prior to Thursday’s 7-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs, the Dodgers had won seven of their last 10 games and are the pick to win at home in this matchup. Los Angeles pitchers have given up two runs or less in eight of their last 10 games

Los Angeles (28-27) took two of three in Atlanta from in April while scoring two runs off Terehan in 5.1 innings of a 5-3 win.

The Pick: Dodgers 6 Braves 4

Seattle (31-22) at Texas (31-22) 8:05 PM ET

Globe Life Park in Arlington
Radio: 710 ESPN, FSSW, The FAN, 1540 ESPN Deportes
MLB Line: Texas -140

Probable Starters

Seattle – Taijuan Walker – R (2-5, 3.31 ERA)
Texas – Yu Darvish – R – (1-0 .180 ERA)

Seattle has won three straight coming into this contest including their stunning 16-13 win over San Diego on Thursday night while coming back from a whopping 12-2 deficit in the ninth inning.

The bad news is that Taijuan Walker was smacked around for five runs in 4.1 innings of a 5-4 loss to Minnesota on Sunday. Walker has lost five straight decisions after going 2-0 with a 1.44 ERA in his first four starts.

The Rangers had their four-game winning streak snapped in Wednesday’s narrow 5-4 loss against Cleveland, but the good news is that superstar right-hander Yu Darvish looked absolutely phenomenal in his first big league start in nearly two years the last time out.

Darvish allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking out seven in five innings of a 5-2 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday. The right-hander threw 81 pitches in his return from last year’s Tommy John surgery.

“Physically I felt I could go more innings, but mentally I was like ‘I’m done here,” Darvish said through an interpreter. “(Saturday) I was heating it up pretty good so I felt pretty good.”

The Mariners have been smacking the cover off the ball lately, but I expect them to get tamed by the incomparable Yu Darvish in this contest.

The Pick: Texas 6 Seattle 3
