I like hudson as long as a team doesn't have a lot of power lefties. The braves have freeman and Ozzie (who's going through a sophmore slump and batting in the 8 hole because of it) and that's about it. Hudson has an elite ground ball rate and can get out of trouble. Soroka is just pitching unreal right now and he's already mowed this cards lineup about a week ago. the line crept up half a run but I like the under, I just don't see a team exploding today and this is a decent pitcher park.70%

Atlanta Braves (65% consensus). Dansby Swanson played most of last season with an injured left wrist that kept him off the playoff roster and led to offseason surgery, but the Atlanta Braves shortstop is healthy and producing entering Saturdays contest at the St. Louis Cardinals. Swanson extended his hitting streak to seven games with the second multi-homer game of his career in Fridays 5-2 victory, giving him 10 homers and 35 RBIs in 52 games as the Braves won for the 11th time in 14 games... http://bit.ly/2GveEJC

Braves Journal: Braves 5, Cards 2
Wow, what's not to love right now? The Braves starting pitchers have a 2.68 ERA in the last 14 days, and a 2.27 ERA in the last 7, and last night it was Mike Foltynewicz's turn to twirl. After throwing 82, 90, and 99 pitchers in the three starts preceding it, Mike threw only 67 pitches in his last outing. And he did that in an efficient six innings, and Snit said later that he wasn't feeling quite right. But Folty came back throwing 89 pitches last night, and he had another great start, throwing 6 innings with no earned runs, no walks, and seven strikeouts.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Braves lead Cardinals 1-0 as Soroka breezes through three innings
Atlanta's Austin Riley doubled in a run in the second inning and starting pitcher Mike Soroka needed only 23 pitches to get through the first three innings with the Braves leading the Cardinals 1-0 at Busch Stadium.
Riley's double was a hard ground ball over the third-base bag that scored Josh Donaldson, who led off the second innings with a single against Dakota Hudson.
The Cardinals have two hits against Soroka, who has not allowed more than five hits in any start this season. He used a double play to get out of the second inning and has thrown only five balls with 18 strikes.

Fansided: 3 Atlanta Braves Takeaways from a Friday night win at St. Louis
Could Mike Foltynewicz back up his last start with a second consecutive strong outing? That was the big question as the Atlanta Braves rolled into St. Louis into the wee hours of Friday morning.
Such a travel scenario isn't ideal, and often leads to a lethargic response for at least the 1st game of a series in which this happens.
Traveling East, the Braves also picked up 2 hours via time zones, so they had even less time to find their sea legs before hostilities commenced on Friday evening.
It didn't matter.
Talking Chop: Foltynewicz, Swanson power Braves past Cardinals in 5-2 win
The Braves got yet another impressive pitching performance from Mike Foltynewicz as he stifled the Cardinals offense for six strong innings, giving him back-to-back solid outings after a rough start to his season. The Atlanta offense was powered by Dansby Swanson, who homered twice and had three RBI, and Freddie Freeman, who added a solo homer. The Braves went to win the opening game of the three-game set with a 5-2 final.
The story of the game early was the pitching for both sides, as Foltynewicz and Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas held each opposing offense quiet in the early-going.
