Sunday Night Baseball Free Pick | Mets at Braves

Wow…what a weekend it’s already been in sports, and we still have Sunday. Who will don the green jacket at Augusta, can the Islanders, Blue Jackets and Blues take commanding 3-0 leads in their NHL playoff series’ and lets not forget the 4 Game 1’s in the first round of the NBA playoffs. Even with all that action, my best bet comes from ESPN Sunday Night Baseball.

Last year’s NL Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom got shelled his last time out, allowing 6 earned runs on 8 hits against the Twins on Tuesday. Before that, he had allowed a total of 8 hits in his previous 2 starts, not giving up a run while striking out 24 in 13 innings.

Braves starter Julio Teheran also got knocked around his last time out, giving up 6 earned on 5 hits and 3 walks in Colorado on Monday. Prior to that start, he had given up 1 run in a no-decision versus the Cubs and 3 earned in his first start of the year in Philadelphia.

A few Braves have had success against deGrom in the past, including Freddie Freeman, who has a .273 average in the 44 at-bats he’s had against deGrom, including 2 homers. The only player on the Mets that has hit well against Teheran with more than 10 at-bats against him is Wilson Ramos, who sports a .357 average in 14 ABs.

I’m expecting this one to start slow, and be a pitchers duel for the first half of the game until these teams put some hits together for a few runs, but then the bullpens will do the rest, keeping this one under the total.
