Despite their early struggles, the Atlanta Braves are still 8th in the Major Leagues in batting average with a .255 average. They are also 19th in the league in terms of runners left on base. To address their issues, the team will turn to Charlie Morton, who made his season debut last week after recovering from a broken leg.
Morton was impressive in his first start, allowing just two hits and two runs while striking out five in 5.1 innings. He is currently 34 years old and is expected to continue his career renaissance.
The San Diego Padres lost their fourth game on Wednesday, falling to the San Francisco Giants behind the performance of Logan Webb. Webb, who has not lost a game since May last year, threw eight strong innings.
In his first start of the season, Joe Musgrove was able to pitch well against the Arizona Diamondbacks, allowing just five hits and two runs in six innings. For the 2021 season, he went 11-9 with a solid 1.05 ERA and a 98.1 K/9 rate.
The San Diego offense has been struggling without the services of Fernando Tatis Jr., who was their designated hitter. The team is currently 11th in the league in batting average but 27th in the league in terms of runners left on base.
