Braves’ Best Bets Against Astros’ Greinke
It’s been a dreadful postseason for veteran right-hander Zack Greinke, Houston’s Game 4 starter. The one time American League Cy Young winner is sporting a 7.71 postseason ERA.
He hasn’t figured in the decision in either of his two playoff appearance. Greinke lasted just 1.1 innings during his only previous start of the 2021 MLB postseason.
The veteran Greinke is also a rarity thus far in this World Series in that he does show a past history against many of the Braves hitters. And a few of them show decent numbers when digging in to face Greinke.

Outfielder Eddie Rosario is batting .400 (2-for-5) against Greinke. Those totals are including a solo home run. Outfielder Jorge Soler is smacking the ball at a .333 clip (3-for-9) when facing Greinke. Soler has also driven in a pair of runs.
Outfielder Adam Duvall is also knocking the baseball at a .333 clip (2-for-6) when the opposing pitcher is Greinke.
The Braves are planning to go with an opener to start Game 4. Atlanta manager Brian Snitker hasn’t indicated who that will be.
Pick: Eddie Rosario +1.5 hits (+165); Jorge Soler +0.5 RBI (+160).

Braves Carrying World Series Hot Hand
Seeking to decipher a difference in the World Series so far, look no further than the respective batting averages. Atlanta is actually hitting a tick better in the World Series (.245) than during the regular season (.244).
Houston, on the other hand, is slumping badly at the plate. The Astros, who were no-hit for the first seven of Game 3, are batting a collective .198 through three games. That’s a far cry from the MLB-best .267 the Astros hit as a team during regular-season play.
Brian Snitker on Michael Brantley: “That guy is crazy. It’s amazing to see how good he is and the professional hitter he is..how consistent he is & how he plays the game…The at-bats are crazy, how deep he lets the ball get. He’s a total player. I’m a big fan.” pic.twitter.com/0oG1KOOEvl
